Urge to Purge

Yesterday June  posted on her blog her Urge to Purge plan- and today I joined in and conquered my embellishment drawer and two other drawers I keep stickers, "extras" and so on in...

Before-not only were the containers jammed in there, the contents weren't really organized anymore

Before:

This was lurking at the bottom--



Afterwards- all sorted, reorganized and lots of room now!


Another drawer (below) had all sorts of stuff in there-

                                                       After-


I did relocate some stickers and different odd embellishments to another drawer and  throw out some empty packaging which I was saving to repurpose but really... I probably won't get to it anytime soon anyway.

I did come up with a large ziploc bag full off odds/ends/ribbon scraps that will be going to the thrift store at the end of my sorting/purging.  I have recently sold a huge amount of my stamps so there's not many things I can sell.

I did find two new spools of ivory grosgrain ribbon I forgot I bought some time ago... and a baggie of larger googlie eyes!  Also I realized I have a TON of brads I need to start using.

Well look at you! Way to GO! I find that a re-org like this can be very productive. I do them once in a while to remind myself of what I have and to maybe even USE it again.
