It snowed so much this past weekend that I was stuck inside all weekend so yesterday I decided to tackle a biggie on my to do list: clean the basement. I really only cleaned what was mine though. Basically for the past 6 or so years since we’ve lived in my house we’ve been putting things downstairs and from time to time we’ve put them into huge storage bins but they were never organized so yesterday, I went through all of my boxes ( I had about 9 storage bins lol) and reorganized them. I now have all my books in one bin, all my movies ( I used to be a dramabuff) in one bin, gifts in one, memory type things in one and a photo/albums bin. I also organized all the clothes and books into different trashbags including: summer sell, winter sell, toss, recycle, and books to sell.
Here is a picture of my bins:
I found a lot of old things. Here are some pages from my Me book in 7th grade, a book all about me 🙂
I also found some old things from my editor-n-chief days of my high school paper.
I also went through a lot of my old memo books and slam books. I had so many!
And then some other random stuff:
I’m so glad I got a chance to go through everything. I brought my two memo books up because I wanted to show the girls and also I want to have a memo book party!
Saturday was a relaxing day. I took my little sister shopping at Ulta because she just haaaaad to. I also got my small gifts for the cousins! I’m excited but worried I won’t have time to make them. I used two coupons at JoAnns and got all my supplies for under $10! Great Deal!
After shopping I met up with Choua and Xti at the grocery store to buy ingredients for our Pho and sweet pork night. We got home and started cooking. With a little (ok, a lot) of help from my mom, our two dishes turned out great!
Here’s my look of the day! I used neutrals and browns from the Tarte Palette.
The yummy food!
The pho was really good, in fact I felt like it was one of the best homemade phos I’ve ever had! Or it could just be that I haven’t had pho in a while, lol.
