What I Bought - August, September, October 2015

With the chaos of the move, I've not been doing my usual "What I Bought" posts for the past three months.  It really hasn't been necessary either, because I haven't bought one thing for myself.  Nada.

We've had so much to do with the house and not just small stuff, but big, expensive stuff.  So as much as my inner child wants to buy, buy, buy, it's just not going to happen. Priorities.  Being an adult is a bummer sometimes.  What do you want for your birthday and Christmas Jenny?  A new roof!  Sigh.  The good news about all of this moving stuff is that I have decluttered like a fiend.  I mean it got hardcore.  I have shredded and thrown away bags and bags papers that are no longer needed. I donated about a third of our kitchen items and half of our books.  I figured if we had forgotten about it/haven't needed it in the 4 years it was in storage, then it really wasn't necessary so off it went.  A little more on this process in a book review later. For the first time in my life there are lots of empty drawers and empty spaces. I don't feel the need to fill those spaces with "stuff".  Now we do need a few things for the house (heart set on this console, these nightstands, this coffee table, side tables and we need a few bookcases) but there's no hurry, no sense of urgency. You can keep track of my ongoing wish list for the house on this Pinterest board. Never fear, I had to buy a few things yesterday so I will have a post for November ;)  Have a great Monday!
