Last week, after my nerves had settled down after Irma, I needed to do a quick purge of something!
So, I looked around, and decided to grab my jewelry box. Which I have not even opened since we’ve moved here, back mid-May!
Here it is: Inside:
Such an appropriate slogan!
An overwhelming pile of
junk stuff. Ok, ok, let’s separate it into categories.
All the purples!
All the sparkles!!
How many sets of ears do I think I actually have????
I don’t wear necklaces ever, so….
Whoa!! Whaaaaaat??? Just start with the earrings.
Okay, deep breath!! Strawberry earrings, 3 pairs exactly alike; so I can probably get rid of 2. Good! A brand new pair, with magnet, that have not even been opened!! That I’ve had since 2011!! Guaranteed I will not miss them! And 1 single. Jet!! I don’t do singles, and certainly not posts anymore!! See ya!
Now, out of ten items, only 2 left. Excellent!!
2 shamrock sets; I can only wear 1 pair at a time, and St. Patrick’s Day is only once a year, so 1 set has to go. Shoo!!
All the sparkles!!
I don’t like the pink ones, because they snag. And I’m just over the others.
Whew! Those were all pretty easy to work thru. But, Dun Dun DUN!! Now here comes all the purples!!!!
- All the purples!
10 pairs of purples, to be exact.
I hope I can do this without crying!!
I let them all go. Say what??
I let them all go…..
And I didn’t even cry!!
These pretty cross ones were made for me by DD2. Not going anywhere!! The light bulbs are my only Christmas ones. Staying!
Melinda, I just wanna tell you, ya’re doing good!! I’m proud of you! Thanx! I appreciate that!
Huh, well, easy enuff, be gone!
These are tie pins, so technically jewelry, I guess??
Honor roll pin from high school??? college???? I didn’t even remember I had it, so no pain to let it go. DCT pin, I know is from HS. Don’t even care now. Bye! And tiny baby feet, to protest abortion. I will keep 1 set, just not both.
- I don’t wear necklaces ever, so….
The purple heart, and the strawberry can go. The 2 pix charms, I have larger sizes of both pix, so they can go. The HS key?? I’m keeping, because I lost my class ring, so this is in lieu of that.
Now onto more misc. stuff that is not jewelry!
The clear cover is to my seam ripper. It will go back on there, so I don’t lose a finger! Scissors will go in sewing stuff. Ya think?? Foreign coins are from Mama. I care nothing about them, and she cares a lot! So, back to her they go! The amethyst I’m keeping for now. And the angel is from Bubba, so she stays too.
I forgot about 2 other pair of earrings, till I was scrolling thru my phone, but I got rid of them, so no pix necessary.
NOW: Introducing my new and improved jewelry box!
- My new jewelry box!
FYI, jewelry bottle might be more descriptive.
I purged so hard!! I really am proud of myself! Numbers gone:
Earrings: 46/56!! Charms: 4/5 Tie tacks: 3/4 Coins: 2/2 Misc: 3/5
58 outta 72 things gone!!
And as Jen says, “I never have to touch them again!”
