My Ohmigod I Have Too Much Stuff This is Embarassing Post

You know, this blog isn't just about rampant consumerism. I mean, everyone knows that in these hard times, making do with what you have is where it's at. And let's face it, a lot of us have too much and no idea what to do with it, and I am definitely included in that. Looking through my closet and in my makeup drawers, I can spot more than a few things that deserve more love that I have given them in the past. But maybe, just maybe, this blog can help me reconnect with hidden treasures and introduce some new favorites into my current rotation. And you know I can always use a little help in this, so here's a quick view of some of the purchased and never used stuff I have in my makeup drawer:

Okay, that is officially the most embarassing list of stuff I've ever seen. I'm mortified. I cannot believe I'm going to post this. I would like to clarify that the majority of the lipglosses from MAC are from the holiday sets which are smaller in size. So are the Stila Lip Glazes and Smudge Pots. 

So, I'm going to try and make sure that I include at least a couple of these items in a look or someway in the coming months, and post about it here. I'm sure I can do the same for my wardrobe too. 

Does anyone else have this problem too? Please admit embarassing stash problems here!

Oh honey; this is not bad. Go to Specktra and check out the Traincase forum; you will see far far worse!

Oh yes! I just recently bought some drawers for my makeup. I thought it would be great to have all my makeup in one thing organized. It has 8 drawers and it still doesn't all fit! I think I have a problem! ;-)

I totally have the same problem if not worse than you :-)
This is why I do challenges for myself to 'shop my stash' one way or another to make sure I rotate the great stuff I've been collecting.
