Two months ago I decided to do a Minimalism Challenge for 30 Days. During that time I was suppose to get rid of minimal 465 items from our home. It works like this: the 1st day you get rid of 1 item, the 2nd day 2 items, the 3rd day 3 items, and so on. … Pretty soon I discovered that that would be too easy because our house is still full of stuff ( although it’s much better now than it was few years ago😊 ). So I’ve changed this challenge for 60 Days of Minimalism Challenge. That meant getting rid of 1830 items! !! A whole different story, don’t you think? 😉😂
For 2 months I searched for things we don’t need or use anymore. And although I do it frequently I never did it on such a scale. There still is a lot of work to do in the future but for now I’m done.
Did I succeed? YES! I’m proud to write that I’ve got rid of 1898 items! Some were donated to the second hand shop, some I gave to our friends and family, some I’ve threw away and some I could sell. There were some surprises along the way too . Who would think that we still have the car key from the car we had. …4 years ago? 😂😂😉😉 I decluttered my wardrobe, our children’s wardrobes, their toys, my make up, jewellery, cosmetics, accessories, shoes. I’ve got rid of old receipts, manuals, paperwork, hobby items, dvd’s , cd’s , books , magazines, kitchen items and much more.
On the photos below you can see a lot of things that left our house but there was still much more😊.
I’m very happy I did this Challenge. I’m still not done though. But I need more time to say goodbye to some things. So for now this is good😊. I think I may do similar challenge next year.
I feel much better now. I have less stuff and I’m more at peace in my mind. That was what I wanted. 💗👍😀
Did you ever did something like this Minimalism Challenge ? How did you feel afterwards? Let me know!😆
Greetings, Linda 😊
