  1. uh… I bought a few things to help me “declutter” some other things. I found small clipboards that stand. I attached my plastic “mesh” with dangle earrings to one and my cork with post earrings to the other. I bought a teal ceramic “egg carton” that would hold a half dozen. I’m using it to hold the hoop earrings since they don’t really work with the mesh or cork. Still need to make holes in the cork so I can attach more of my post earrings. I also bought some new earring stops to prevent the loss of my beloved earrings. With these items, I have cleaned and reorganized my dresser top to have most of my earrings visible and less worn jewelry tucked in a drawer. My dresser looks better and I’m wearing more of my earrings since I am seeing them ๐Ÿ™‚

    I also bought small Wilton squeeze bottles (came in a set of 2). They are for making candy but I bought them to have a container for that last dab of shampoo or conditioner. It’s hard to get that last bit out of the rigid containers they come in. These bottles are easily squeezable (excellent for achy hands) and I found after purchase that they have a nice wide opening so it’s easy to let the product drain into them without “supervision”. I have labeled them as Shampoo / Conditioner, with a Sharpie and labels I am using up (bonus points for that? hehe ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    We recently got better Internet service by changing our phone service provider. Today I called to cancel our old Internet provider and request a refund (I had paid ahead). One chore done and one bill gone!

  2. I was having trouble parting with the business cards my dangle earrings came on. I liked knowing who or what company made each pair. So, today I had a photo shoot with all earrings attached to their cards. Then I had a shredding party to shred the cards. The earrings went back to their clipboard ๐Ÿ™‚
