The rules are simple, you get rid of things from your life, either by selling them, throwing them away, or donating them. On the first day, you remove one item, and then on the second day, you remove two items, you keep on playing until it’s the end of the month, or whenever you run out of things to remove from your life. It is okay if you can’t make it until the end of the month. Personally, I would rather see items get donated, or sold to someone else. If you must throw something away, I hope it’s because it isn’t fixable. Even if you have removed three items from your life, you should still be proud of that, because it is three more things you removed before the challenge. But if you are able to complete this challenge, you would have gotten rid of almost 500 items! That’s a lot of stuff.
If you are participating, I would love to know what you are parting with, feel free to let me know in the comments. This is such a fun way to welcome Spring cleaning.
This is from Tuesday March 9th. I just have been so busy, and I’m trying my best to get all caught up for April the 10th, so I can start fresh again very soon.
I feel quite proud of myself with everything I have given away already. Last year, I had given away 192 items. I am really starting to feel a lot lighter now.
I have counted earrings as two items, because some of my earrings I have, only have one, instead of the set. So I thought I may as well count a pair of earrings as two items. You can make up your own rules with these challenges. Add your creativeness to the project.
From this post, I have parted with seven earrings, a ring, and necklace. I have a lot of jewelry over the years. I have told a lot of people that I no longer want any more jewelry as any gifts. Although my boyfriend is still allowed to buy some special pieces.
