101 in 1001: #25: Use up an entire chapstick.

Oh my gosh, this was such a frivolous goal. I almost feel ridiculous being excited about it. Almost. 

See, I'm one of those people who tends to be incredibly scatterbrained. My mom always used to call my life "organized chaos" when I was younger...for all I know, she still does. I tended to know where the important things were, but little stuff? Always lost in the shuffle. I notoriously never have a pen, can rarely find my keys if they're not securely placed on the hook by the door the second I get home, and have even misplaced my car at the Mall of America (easier to do than you'd think). Obviously chapstick is a low-priority item...and therefore often lost for me. It got so bad that after my move back downtown in October, I found no less than eight separate, practically untouched Burt's Bees chapsticks in my boxes and bags. That's totally ridiculous. 

That said, having eight chapsticks meant I could have one pretty much everywhere. I stuck one in a side zipper pocket of my purse, one in the sunglasses holder in my car, one in my bathroom medicine cabinet, one on my nightstand, and already had one in my cube at work, right next to the hand sanitizer and lotion that I use religiously. 

Having them visible and accessible made remembering to use them (multiple times) daily much easier, and I have to say, my usually dry, cracked, winter-chapped lips are loving it. The desk one was the official first to be used up: it took about six months and, as little as it is, it's so satisfying that I actually burned through an entire tube before losing it. 

Here's to the little victories and frivolous goals, and checking another item off my 101 in 1001!
