Happy Friday, ladies! This week has breezed on by… almost too quickly I might say. BUT, Christian has the entire weekend off so you best believe we’re going to make the most of it.
I’ve been working on slowly starting to purge the little corners of our townhouse. After watching some Marie Kondo videos on YouTube to get inspired, I started by going through all the books we’ve acquired over the years. Then I moved onto trinkets and clothes. I went to my favorite consignment spot, sold a ton of clothes, shoes and accessories… and came home with a few pieces including a teal Balenciaga bag (hello, fabulous!).
That’s one of the many amazing things about consigning. You feel better about reselling pieces that are no longer bringing you use or joy, and you can put that toward a trade or cash. Crossroads will give you 50% trade or 33% cash. Sometimes I choose trade, other times cash, but when I see J.Crew heels and Balenciaga bags… you best believe I’m going to choose trade, sister!
So perhaps the purge thing isn’t going so well… ha! BUT I feel better taking the next 4-6 weeks to slowly sell items to used book stores, consignment shops, Craigslist, Salvation Army, etc. It’s always great to put gently loved items back into the neighborhood when you can, right?
Just a short PSA for consignment. I really can’t say enough about consignment shops – one of my favorite ways to buy and sell items. I’ve found so many gems that way!
Of course I have to say something about all these amazing skincare goodies from D’Andra Simmons of Real Housewives of Dallas and Hard Night | Good Morning! We connected over email and I am so excited to try some of her skincare items, especially the L22 Elixir (RH-watchers know what I’m talking about, reminder here). She also told me it’s Mama Dee-approved, and as a MAJOR fan of Mama Dee, you know that’s all I need to hear.
Tell me your weekend plans! And if you have purging-before-moving tips, I would be SO grateful! Thanks so much for reading and sharing – XO –
