I am really getting into preparing for a move. Yesterday afternoon I decluttered our bathroom cupboards. It was a challenge to rid us of oodles of hair and skin products. I noticed with the hair products there are no two with the same name. Is a texture mousse the same as a volumizing mousse? Is a finishing spray the same as hair spray? There are no instructions on what they are for or how to use them. I know some go in dry hair, some go in wet hair but which ones? They got here from my hair appointments. I would get a cut and style and ask what product was used to style my hair. Of course I had to buy it to maintain the style. Then my hair would grow out and I would pony tail it for awhile then repeat the cycle - new cut, style and product. So I threw out hundreds of dollars in products but am saving money doing it. The cost of renting a very small heated storage locker is over $200/month!
Tomorrow I am having a realtor in to look at our house. I know from watching Sell This House, etc. I need to declutter more. The kitchen is almost done and I continue to sell things on Craig's List. There are no home stagers here, but I advertised for one and got a call from someone who paints, sews, etc. who has done her friends' house. If I rent furniture it will come from a city 5 hours away.
Last night was our last workout with our trainer. It felt like graduation! Our goal was to learn posture, balance and flexibility exercises. We want to look as young as we feel and I think we got it. We will be in Las Vegas and Arizona for a couple of weeks and I will do some planning on mapmywalk to get some ideas.
