Good Things Come to Those Who...

Clean. Actually it's more like purging than cleaning. I am throwing away and giving away everything that is not nailed down.

My reward? While dumping out a kitchen drawer I found an Anthropologie gift card.

This is me when I found the card. Don't I look happy? What? You think it looks like Kate Hudson...whatever....


Now the big question..what should I buy? Something for the house?


Or for me?


I agree. Something for me!


If only my gift card was for $300 I would totally buy these happy boots. Can you stand them? I am going to do some more cleaning and see if I can't find some more $$$. Wish me luck!

What about you? Any cleaning in your New Year resolutions?

  2. That's the best when you find money or gift cards you didn't know you had. I hope you find some more. I'm not a purger, I'm a hoarder...so, it's a good thing my better half is the organizing type. Good luck!

  3. I'm jealous. I never find gift cards while cleaning just expired coupons. I love your ideas though. I actually tried on that blue and white cardigan with embellishment while shopping with my Christmas Anthro gift card. Very cute!!

  6. That's awesome! Happy shopping! There is nothing better than a gift card - buy something frivilous that you normally wouldn't spend the money on! Have fun. xo

  9. I am a HUGE eliminator... I think it's a sickness {ha ha ha}! It make me feel so happy {insert happy dance photo} to clean things out. Wish I found that card... Founds come quarters, 1/2 eaten lipstick from the kids & cherrios... Nothing like an AP giftcard. Have fun shopping!!!!!
    xoxo,

  10. I'm constantly going through drawers and closets and getting rid of things we don't need or use. We have a big box in the attic labeled "Garage Sale" and it is very full right now.
    Love that Anthropologie bag!

  12. That is awesome, what a fun thing to find while cleaning! I love it when that happens to me, it makes me want to clean the entire house to see what else I find. Hmmm, I think I need to go and clean now :)

  14. That's just like finding money in an old jacket picket, but better because it's the best store ever!

  15. Are you sure that it is your gift card, it could very well be mine. (I wish!!)

  16. Well that makes cleaning a lot better! I have about $300 credit at Anthro right now. I struggle with what to get because I want it to be something wonderful! I also hoard my credit at stores because my hubby is a little on the stingy side so when he says no, I say yes! HA!

    I am cleaning my house and also purging on Saturday. I can't wait!
