Although I am an avid beauty collector and beauty lover, I've been working really hard the past few years to work on the bad shopping habits. I found myself in a state where I was buying too many things just to mask or deal with emotional problems. Feeling anxious? Buy some shoes, snatch that purse, fill your online shopping cart with makeup. But here's the thing, filling my life with things wasn't solving my problems - in many ways, my overconsumption actually made me more miserable, because my money was being spent on things rather than experiences. To make matters worse, I moved into a smaller living space earlier this year. As result, the mass clutter I had tucked away, suddenly became exposed.
According to the Daily Mail, we'll spend an average of 3,680 hours searching or 153 days searching for lost items. On average, we lose about 9 items a day (198,743 items in a lifetime)! But just imagine - if we spend this much time just looking for lost items, how much more time do we spend cleaning? As a beauty blogger, I spend a lot of time and money buying and organizing cosmetics and clothing, but I want to reduce the clutter in my life.
