[00:01:31] Chelsey Donn: Happy February. I'm good. I've been doing A', little bit of organizing in the home. It's very stressful. It's good, but it's like, you know, 'I was going through A' Closet and this was like the hall closet, so this wasn't even like, we haven't done the clothes yet, you know, and 'I was already feeling like, oh, like 'I don't wanna let go of some of this stuff that clearly 'I haven't used.

A' decade.

[00:01:57] Trey Gerrald: How long have you lived in this house?

[00:01:59] Chelsey Donn: It's going. It's crazy, but it is going on 12 years.

[00:02:04] Trey Gerrald: Wow. Oh, so there really is tough, like you have not seen

[00:02:07] Chelsey Donn: Yeah. So 'I have like this whole closet that's just like 'I. Think 'I filled it with stuff when 'I like moved in that 'I thought 'I wanted, you know, like exercise equipment and such, and. It's just managed to stay there. And eventually you have to be like, if I'm not using it, and it's perfectly fine, you know, someone else can benefit from this and let it go.

To bring in, you know, new energy and new things and try to be A' little bit more mindful about acquiring things in the future because oof, you know, it's sort of A' reality. Check 'I, think

[00:02:41] Trey Gerrald: How big is this hall closet

[00:02:43] Chelsey Donn: very like small. So 'I had things.

[00:02:46] Trey Gerrald: falling

[00:02:47] Chelsey Donn: the front of it. Well, 'I just like had built towers of things like blocking it.

Cause 'I was like, 'I can't even deal with what's in there. So yeah, I'm carving out some more space and figuring out the best way to organize and it's A' humbling and somewhat emotional experience, but ultimately 'I feel like it's gonna be to my betterment.

[00:03:05] Trey Gerrald: It's interesting you're doing that cuz 'I literally last night just bought A' bunch of makeup organizers cuz 'I, like 'I just always keep my drag makeup and little like. Caboodles basically. But 'I realized the other day, 'I think 'I did that when 'I lived on the upper West side so that 'I could throw everything in something and like put it away.

But now 'I have this little dedicated space and the makeup isn't leaving. So then I'm like constantly digging through this little like bucket

[00:03:33] Chelsey Donn: Right.

[00:03:34] Trey Gerrald: 'I have this room, and 'I have this desk, but 'I don't have containers. So 'I bought A' bunch of stuff literally last.

[00:03:40] Chelsey Donn: Outta sight outta mine. Like when it's in the bottom of the caboodle, you're probably not gonna find it. But when you like have it out and you've like divided by like lipsticks and glosses and eyeshadows, like, then you really can have more of an inventory.

[00:03:54] Trey Gerrald: Well, you know what it really is, is like, this is very relatable, but 'I was searching for this specific liquid eyeliner and you know, liquid eyeliner. If it's not an A' bulbous container, it's in A' pen sa shape, which is the same as A' lip liner, which is the same as lip

[00:04:14] Chelsey Donn: An eyeliner,
