Cute crap I don’t need. (aka March Yumebox Review)

Last month, I received my first subscription box from Japan. I was a little let down that I didn’t end up using most of the items in my box, so I told myself, “If March’s box is similar to February’s, then cancel it! You can do something else with that $40.”

March’s Yumetwins promised to contain ‘Totoro’ items! As long as it’s not a box full of keychains, I will be happy.

Japanese Subscription Boxes!!! Yumetwins & Kawaii Box February Review.

About a month ago, I was watching some videos on Youtube and came across a few Japanese subscription box reviews.

Everything I bought in December 2016

I caught the shopping bug.

Once I declutter, I declared, I will be left with only what I truly love and I will not need to shop unless I am in absolute need of something.

Then Vegas happened and I started shopping.

“You’re always de-cluttering your closet.”

Yesterday, as I enthusiastically pulled every piece of clothing from my closet onto my bed as Kon Mari suggests to do, I was enthralled with the thought that I would finally, finally have a perfectly de-cluttered home.

My boyfriend watched with amusement, “Remember a few years ago when you dumped bags of clothing at your friend’s house?”

No. I didn’t remember. In fact I completely forgot until he brought it up.

“I just think it’s funny how you’re always ‘de-cluttering’ your closet.” He remarked as he exited the room.

Even though it was just a statement said in passing, I was shocked when I realized just how many times I had tried to declutter previously.
