28 Days Purging Series: Day 22

Welcome to day twenty two of this purging series. Today we are going to be doing Handbags.

Our goal is to spend 20 minutes or less on this task. Throughout this series there may be tasks that only take 5-10 mins and that is great and gives so much motivation to keep on with the tasks in the days ahead. 

Also, during these daily tasks for our purging series if there is a day where it does not apply to you or that place does not need it you can select another area to do with the same idea of 20 minutes or less.

Just like Day 20, this task might be a little harder on the decision making side. I love handbags, over the years I collected lots of handbags, about 5 years ago I did a big declutter of all my handbags, I narrowed it down to my most loved and used. I have a different look when purchasing handbags now, I really live by quality over quantity. I also, no longer jump on every trend. A trend is something that isn’t here for long.

For this task, we are going to go through all our handbags in sight. If you have seasonal bags packed away you don’t have to go through them until you are ready to pull them out for the season. First similar to Day 20, pull the ones you know you love and use. Next, pull one bag out at a time and make a decision. Make piles, to donate, to sell.
If you have luxury bags that you don’t want to get rid of because of the amount of money spent on them, consider selling them. There are many sites you can pick from to sell your items. Research them and pick the one of your choice (examples: Facebook Market Place, On your own Instagram account, Poshmark Canada).You won’t get what you spent, but you will earn something from it and that handbag will go to someone who will make good use of it. If you come across bags that you would like to donate I have come across a great cause on Instagram called Purse Project York, check them out here or select of course from your own choices.

Was this a hard one? For me now it is not, as I explained earlier on I have really paired down my collection and think about many things before purchasing a new bag.

Share pictures with me on Instagram tag me @sandy.isho would love to see.

28 Days Purging Series: Day 19

Welcome to day nineteen of this purging series. Today we are going to be doing our Purse & Wallet.

Our goal is to spend 20 minutes or less on this task. Throughout this series there may be tasks that only take 5-10 mins and that is great and gives so much motivation to keep on with the tasks in the days ahead. 

Also, during these daily tasks for our purging series if there is a day where it does not apply to you or that place does not need it you can select another area to do with the same idea of 20 minutes or less.

Our purse and wallets carry a lot of regular things already. With each passing day more and more gets added in them. Today’s task should not take too long. First, empty everything from your purse. Make piles to sort “to go back in”, “to put away”, and “trash”. Once done move onto your wallet, keeping the same type of sorting. With our wallets not everything needs to be pulled out, I would do a visual and quick check of slots. Remove what you see no longer needs to be there. I have come into the habit of doing this once a week. Since sticking with it I am never losing things in my bag. I am also not overwhelmed with the amount of receipts and other things to be put away.

How often do you clean out your purse?
