Woo Hoo! I’m feeling confident that as I transition from sharing a space with children into solo living in a travel trailer that I will be able to keep my count of items below 100. That has been my goal for years. It is so close, I can taste it. It has oaken/solid undertones with a hint of freedom and lots of aroma of affection.
Miscellaneous Items (#14)
Back to front: laundry basket, suitcase, coffee pot (with cup for staging) backpack (which gets used as an overnight bag, a lunch box, a purse and a shopping bag,) towel, glass case, sunglasses, glasses and wallet, Christmas stocking and lap top. Not pictured are the car (it looks that same) the cell phone (it is taking the photo) and the bed. Technically, I won’t have a bed after the move. I’ll be sleeping in my son’s while he is in Ireland. Hopefully my trailer will be done before he gets back.

And there are 9 wooden hangers in the photos.
Personal Care Items (#11)
Hand made soap, razor, basket, grooming scissors, eyebrow pencil, toothpaste/toothbrush/floss, mascara, foundation, jar of coconut oil, shampoo, nail clippers.
The past year brought a revolution in my personal care products. In the fall, I developed a persistent and itchy rash. It continued through 2 rounds of steroids. I eventually went to an allergist, who’s testing revealed that I am allergic to many chemicals in personal care products. So, I have switched to products that have natural elements, that I am not allergic to. The soap is hand-made with olive oil. The coconut oil I use as a make-up remover, skin lotion, hair de-frizzer, and lip balm. If only I could brush my teeth with it……
I am so excited by my progress. I hope you all are as well.
This is my hair clip. They come in a package of 2 and break easily–so sometimes I have 2 and sometimes I have 1.
I have edited the original post (both the number and added the last photo) as astute reader Elizabeth asked about my hair care routine, and I realized I had left something off the count. Other than the shampoo and coconut oil already mentioned, this is my only hair product. I finger comb my hair (though as it gets longer, I will likely buy a comb.) I let it air dry, and when it is dry, I use the above pictured thingie to clip it up.
