Clean Me

Every day I am going to do something -- no matter how small -- to improve my standard of living at home.

As promised, today I took a close look into the sunglasses drawer. Once I added the glasses I found in jacket pockets and handbags and carelessly left on the kitchen counter, I confirmed what I suspected: I don't need to buy another pair of sunglasses again for a long, long time. Not when I have:

7 pairs with black frames
4 pairs with blue
3 pairs with brown
1 pair with purple
1 pair with grey

As with the earrings, now that I know what I have, I can choose more carefully in the morning and enjoy all that I have collected. I'm tossing one pair with a broken stem and one broken glasses case, and donating an additional two pairs of sunglasses and two cases to Goodwill.

  1. I've been following your progress, and I'm so proud of you! Looking forward to seeing what comes next each day. We're pretty pared-down here, but could do with some detail cleaning, so perhaps I'll try something in a similar vein.

    Keep up the good work!

  2. You've just inspired me to complete the dreaded jewelry box. I hear gold is selling these days. Out it goes.
    Good for you on the sunglasses!

    I'm jealous! I can barely keep track of one pair of sunglasses.
