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.
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.
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!
I am not going to lie, this is getting harder and harder. Not because I don’t want to get rid of anything, but rather that I just don’t have tons of stuff to get rid of. I’m not including my craft room because I will be doing this all over again there in January. Maybe more than once seeing the over abundance of craft supplies I have that I never use!
So here are the items leaving my house from this post.
If this isn’t an eclectic lot, I don’t know what is. Everything from a handbag to hair color to more cat toys.
You’ll be seeing a lot more Christmas ornaments once we put up our family tree.
Plastic tote bags of all sizes, wall decals, doilies a purse and some more holiday items.
I got into the linen closet here. Notice there are still more Christmas items!
All kinds of wrapping items and three random floral picks.
As you can see, I just pick up items as they catch my attention and add them to the pile. This stuff is all leaving my house so I don’t really care how it’s grouped.
I’d love to know if any of you are playing along or if you plan to do this in the new year.
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!
