Minimalist Game – Day 27


Another foray into the night stand. Some old clothes from the kid. Not sure where I’m headed for tomorrow. Linen closet maybe?

Minimalist Game – Day 26


I’m writing this one from my phone, so please excuse the lack of formatting. Today’s purge of items came from a long neglected night stand drawer. I’ll probably be able to pull enough for tomorrow from there too. I have to say this is been a really good exercise. Definitely worth trying at least once a year. The act of letting things go is becoming easier. I really want to break tendency to hoard. This is helping.

I need to note that I will be going out of town for my grandmother’s funeral on Friday, so I will probably just postpone the last 3 days until I get back.

Mostly drawer junk, stone paper notepad, junk mail, more expired meds (good grief!).

    Ok, folks, it’s getting serious now. I’m still finding things, but I’m not going to name them all this time. There are a lot of cables and earbuds, headsets and old batteries, some expired medicines and file folders. I’m getting through a lot of old stashes of things in labeled containers. It’s amazing how much organized clutter I have. This last week of the “game” is going to be tough. I think I should have taken my friend SXT’s advice and started counting individual socks and maybe paperclips… 😉

Yep, another two-fer. This time it was a thorough purging of my file cabinet next to my desk. It felt really good to get through all the folders I’d made a couple of years ago and get rid of everything I didn’t need. As much as I enjoy the idea of having every paper that I found even mildly significant filed away “just in case”, reality says scanning it and filing it electronically is much better for my minimalist aims.
