This past weekend, I did a little fall cleaning of my closets. The two closets in my room consist of clothes, shoes, and some of my old “items”- which includes everything from stuffed animals to my CD collection. During this process, I realized a few things I’d like to share with you.
My taste in music was quite awful, yet awesome
My collection of cassette tapes that I found included The Spice Girls, Natalie Imbruglia (she had that song “Torn”), Backstreet Boys, Aqua (“Barbie Girl”) and Jewel. I clearly moved up in taste once CDs came out- my first CD was No Doubts “Tragic Kindgom” — which is actually a really good album. Sadly, my CD collection also included Britney Spears, Ashlee Simpson (not ashamed of this one though), 3LW, Dream, Nelly, etc. Eventually I stopped buying CDs in late high school once my music taste got a little better and iTunes took over. It was still hilarious to remember all the songs I used to listen to.
What happened to Beanie Babies being worth some money?
I have a large collection of probably 50-100 of them. After doing some internet research, I found out that they are only worth a buck or two a piece. So I’m thinking of keeping them for when I have kids so they can play with Mommy’s old toys. How cute.
I may be in the early stages of hoarding
Ok not really, but it was very hard for me to part with some of the items I found. For example, it took all my might to let go of my Lisa Frank collectible tin, these miniature bunny figurines and my childhood books.
I used to have kick-ass computer games
Lego Friends (you build your own girl band- not sure what it has to do with Legos), American Idol (my brother and I used to play this and sing to random strangers), Barbie Cool Looks Fashion Designer (you got to create your own clothes and Barbie modeled them- a fashion blogger’s dream) and much more. I really miss spending hours playing games on weekends.
What are some funny things you’ve discovered when cleaning out your closet/room? Do you find it hard to part with items from your childhood and teenage years?
