I worked on this purge project before Christmas. I'm just now getting around to posting about it. Over the course of the last 6 weeks or so, it appears that I've lost my notes about how many necklaces I started with and how many I purged. It know it looked something like this:
Started with: A Lot
Kept: 60% of A Lot
Final purge tally: 40% less than A Lot
I learned a few things during this process.
I like jewelry!
I think I already knew that before, but this solidified it in my mind.
I also learned that it is more fun to open up a clean, organized jewelry box so that I can actually see all the jewelry that I love. Shortly after this purge, Hudson was up on the bathroom counter looking through the drawers as he's known to do. A delighted look came over his face as he declared, "Oh, I've never been shopping in this aisle before!"
