New Year's closet clean-up/clean-out

While my dear husby has been spending his Xmas vacation playing video games, I have been diligently cleaning house. First, I cleaned out the bottom shelf of our coffee table and organized the millions of cables and Wii-related devices. Then, I tackled our two walls of floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves. I don't know why anyone would have done this back in the day. No matter how organized it is, it still looks cluttered and messy! Right now I'm diligently finishing my shoe wall with my favorite shoe boxes from The Container Store.

I've been dreading what comes next: my walk-in closet which has basically become the storage room from hell. I know, it MUST be done, it's simply bursting at the seams, and I know there is tons that I no longer wear at all. I've hung on to old college 'just-in-case' sweatshirts for too long. It's time to face the reality: I live in a New York apartment with a boiling hot heating system (seriously, I am sitting here in a tank and shorts as I type this), and I will not be raking the lawn anytime soon. And those old ski clothes? I think it's time to part with the 90's-style ski bib overalls.

As added incentive, I ordered some beautiful super-fancy wooden Runway Collection hangers from Kirby Allison's Hanger Project. I placed this order a while ago, but the timing could not be more perfect. I now have the next four days to plow through this monumental chore. Meekus (as you can see below) will likely not be helping much. Wish me luck!

Donate with me! If you are so inspired...
- Old clothes can go to the Salvation Army, Goodwill, HousingWorks, or maybe your local church. Visit the NYC Stuff Exchange website for a very thorough list of drop-off locations near you.
- Old bedding and towels (even torn or stained) can be donated to Animal Shelters. I am a huge supporter of the ASPCA, so if you don't think humans want your dingy towels, some adorable puppies will be more than happy to take them!
- Broken electronics should be disposed of specially. Usually I just collect a pile until I get a postcard for that e-waste recycling fair in Union Square, and luckily the next one is Sunday, Jan 2. Usable electronics can also be donated with clothing.

Shopping Las Vegas: James Perse in Caesar Forum

I thought I'd share my find with anyone who happens to live or be visiting Las Vegas anytime soon: the James Perse store in the Caesar Forum has a huge collection of tees, lounge shorts, and other odds and ends at 'outlet' prices. Basically a woman's tee which was $50 or so is marked to $30. AND they are currently doing +30% off the outlet price, so I just got 2 tops for $21 each. FAB deal!!!

I would have bought way more, but I actually own most of those colors already (hehe) and they are limited in size 2.

Mighty Leaf online sale

Not fashion, but if you need a gift for someone work-related, you can't go wrong with some high-class tea. I bought a couple of Spa Tea books for the people who wrote recommendations for my MBA apps, and they loved them!

P.S. Prices are as marked, but if you sign up for their e-newsletter, you'll get a code for an additional 15% off. AND you can probably try using "WELCOME" for free standard shipping.

P.P.S. My spa tea books came in good condition, but the tea inside was all jumbled. If you are going to gift it, make sure you open it up and rearrange all the tea packets inside!

This is *NOT* an attack site

Today I was met with a Firefox warning that my own blog had become an attack site! That is pretty ridiculous. Turns out one of my 'fav site' links (Globerati) has become compromised, and by linking to it, somehow I become categorized as an attack site myself.

Please trust me when I say I do not launch any malicious software or track you in any way!!! This is just a blog, and I just post content, pictures, and links to shopping. So, I hope you will continue to read and benefit from my sales postings.

P.S. Spain was great. Apparently my birthday (Dec 6) is a national holiday there, Constitution Day. Woo hoo!
