I haven't done an empties post before, but I've finished quite a few products last quarter. I've been trying to clear out the clutter in my life and that includes my messy desk! You can read my previous post on what I've started with. I've only saved what I used up for the month of March so going forward, I'll be more diligent to save up all products I've used! For those that are not familiar with Empties Posts, it's a round up of products that bloggers have used up for the month. So, it's bloggers essentially taking pictures of their trash of the month. If you're looking at these posts on the outside, this can be pretty strange. I personally like reading empties posts because it makes it feel like there's proof as to how much someone likes a particular product.
I was looking through my desk the other day and realized I had a ton of clutter. I've been reading a few books that involve minimalism and only owning things that bring you joy. This concept was new to me because growing up, I was very fortunate to have more than I needed. I had more toys than I could play with, and more books than I could read. Minimalism is becoming a very hot topic in modern society because we take a lot for granted. Think about it: when are you going to wear that sweater that still has the tags on it? After reading these books, I realized I need to declutter my life, so why not document it?
