February 20 – Sponge bag

Feb 20

 

Today I’m giving away this sponge bag or toiletries bag.  It was a G with P from Estee Lauder from who knows when.  It’s been at least two years since I bought mainstream cosmetics so it’s at least that old, probably older.  I encourage you to read There’s Lead in Your Lipstick, by the very clever Gillian Deacon, you’ll never buy from the big department store or drug store brands again.  I now buy most of my cosmetics and toiletries at The Carrot or Wholefoods.

I don’t think I’ve ever used this bag.  I resist anything that adds additional weight to my suitcase and found that a clear vinyl bag from MEC is the lightest and best way to transport toiletries and still have weight allowance for your travel shopping.

I’m giving the bag to my artist sister.  The best thing about it is that it has a vinyl lining and would be good for storing paints, pencils, short brushes or any other messy tools of her trade.  She also shares the family attachment to bags of all types.

I'm trying to make more space in my life so I'm getting rid of stuff. All the things that I've been hanging on to that might have some utility for someone else, if no longer for me. I'm going to try to give something away every day.

    I love your mini essays about each item you give away. They are entertaining and informative. After you gave me a copy of There’s Lead in Your Lipstick, I told all my friends about it and I also now buy all toiletries and cosmetics (very few of those these days) at the local health food stores. That’s a very good tip about packable cosmetic bags and using a clear vinyl bag. I have to admit that I do like a bag you can hang on the back of the bathroom door in the hotel. Mine has a small hanger and even though it is quite old and worn I can’t part with it for that reason.
