Minimalist Game 24 And 25 Items

Okay folks, once again I apologize for taking so long to put these next two days of the minimalist game up. I really will try do better for the next 6 days. I must admit it is really getting harder and harder to find items to get rid of. I need to watch more minimalism videos to get myself in the right frame of mind to really ditch stuff. I’m stuck in the “what if I’ll need that again” mind set as well as the “I paid good money for that” mind set. Hopefully, I’ll get going again with the vim and vigor I started out with on day 1. 

Okay so here are my next two lots to get rid of.

Three tops, 3 pillowcases, screen door decor, Christmas gift card holder, 3 napkin rings, book, nail decals, eye mask pads, 3 ethnic pins, 2 bracelets, 2 eye makeup brushes and 3 sets of earrings. Total 24 Items.

Two tablecloths, travel hygiene set, 3 jewelry bags, 4 books, 3 nail polishes, posture device, 2 cooling bottle holders, two flashlights, 5 jewelry boxes, a pair of jeans and a top. Total 25 items.

I seems to always have a piece or more of clothing to give up. A part of this is because I can easily see what I am wearing and what is being left on the hanger or in the drawer. The hardest clothing for me to part with is pants. I’m in the process of losing weight and I keep thinking I’ll fit into them again. I’m now making myself get rid of anything I don’t fit into today. If I lose enough weight that I’ll need new pants I’ll deal with it then. Having pants that are too small taking up so much room in my closet fills me with guilt because I don’t fit into them anymore. Having guilt is not helping me move forward. 

I’ll start gathering 53 new items for my next two installments. I hope you are playing along and not taking as long as I am!

 

Minimalism Game Continued!!!

I’M BACK!!! I’m so sorry I had to take off so long but life gets in the way sometimes. I desperately need to keep up with purging items from my home and could not wait to get started again. I left off with 21 items so today I will be showing you days 22 and 23. Please excuse that the items are a real hodge podge, but I went back to some areas and gathered more stuff while hitting some new areas of the house. So without any further ado, here are my declutters.

Day 22 

4 purses, 2 wristlets, 1 notepad, 1 cup, 1 bowl, 1 tin, 1 soap dispenser, 2 pillowcases, 1 sheet, 2 more pillowcases, 1 box of light switch covers, 1 pair of gloves, 3 tank tops and 1 key hiding rock.

Day 23

1 bag of straws, 1 wicker basket, 1 soap dispenser (we have three of the same ones so you saw one of the others on day 22), 1 wood bee skep, 1 candle, 1 beanie baby, 1 Chinese calendar, 2 Victorian journals, 1 Wreck this Journal, 4 small plastic gift bags, 2 pieces carpet padding, 1 scarf, 1 shirt, 1 package party picks, 1 pillow, 2 packages Christmas napkins

I warned you that it would be totally random but I think it’s fun. I intend to keep up with the game, however, my posts may be bi-weekly instead of daily. 

If you don’t know about the minimalism game, please check out my earlier posts. I hope you are playing along and finding some relief in your less cluttered space!

 

 

 

More Minimalism Games

Okay I have to admit the Minimalism Game is getting harder. As I already stated in my first post about the games, I don’t like clutter. This means I don’t have tons of stuff to get rid of. I’ve had to go through all my cupboards to find this stuff. Never fear though, I will have enough to get rid of 485 items. So here are days eleven through fifteen’s worth of flotsam and jetsam. 

Some CDs, a cassette tape and two random frozen Charlotte dolls.

I realize this is more than 13 items but I just wanted to get rid of them and be done with the cd cabinet.

Okay, so here I really get random. There are some Easter decorations, a silver plate bowl, two concrete candle jars, some laces, a handbag shaped box, a book and some wire stuff I was going to craft with.

I had to hit up a cabinet in the laundry room for all these cat toys. We used to have two cats but now only have one. There are so many more toys it’s ridiculous. Our cat, Holly, doesn’t play with toys like this so out they go!

I figured out that I have now gotten rid of 120 items. Tomorrow is a new day of decluttering. I’ll be back in five days to show you more items that will be vacating our house!
