There are a lot of things one could put into their yoga/gym bag. Multiple water bottles, fancy rep timers, a towel (or three), a shower kit, hairspray, protein bars, a tin of soup, feminine products, makeup, homework, running shoes, a cell phone charger, iPad, headphones, etc etc. This year, as a part of my New Years resolution to be more active, I decided that I wouldn’t make “getting all of my stuff together”, an excuse for not getting out of the house. I’ve tried to make it easy for myself by simplifying what I take down to the basics.
A couple of years ago, I discovered my affinity and affection for thrifting. The discovery coincided with my engagement to JP; getting married meant a new home, and a new home meant I could finally buy home goods. I found myself occasionally strolling into Talize, Value Village, or The Salvation Army, and I discovered that there is great stuff to be found! After a few very successful thrifting trips, I was hooked.
I love seeing the inner corners of other people’s makeup and skincare storage, for want of inspiration. (I know I’m not the only one). There’s something about how people keep organized that intrigues me, and makes me excited to go and do the same.
