One of my favourite no-cost, happiness-inducing activities is to potter around the house using things up.
Such items as two partially-used body lotions can be condensed into one of the bottles for a new and different scented lotion, and I can recycle one bottle.
I go through my candle stash, choose one that is quite low and commit to burning that until it’s gone.
Same thing with facial skincare. I tend to buy moderately priced skin products when they are on a special offer, so I always have a good supply. However I like to test the new one straight away. When I’m on my using things up jag, I put everything away except for one of each product, and use that until it’s gone.
I know this sounds so basic, but it really does bring a ray of sunshine to my day and subsequent days when I do this micro-sweep of organisation.
I can even extend it to my laundry and pantry by taking stock, combining like items and/or reminding myself they even exist sometimes. Often dinner is an inspired creation that night!
If you really feel like letting loose and living it up, why don’t you open a cupboard door and see what you can find to use up – join the party!
