Wow! I have 100 more days left of this challenge. Which also means there are only 100 days left of 2020. That seems like a long time, but some times these days, during this time can go by pretty quickly.
In this container, I came across various art materials that I no longer need. I feel so free without all of these items anymore.
While I was decluttering, I came across a bunch of stuff I thought I needed, but I actually didn’t. I am so glad that I am finally going through my things, once and for all.
I had this container that my sister held on to in her house because I had to pack up my room and sort through my belongings at a later date. My mama used my room for her friend since her friend was going through a break up. So I had to gather up my stuff. And I am finally going through these containers. Luckily for me the first one I went through was filled with miscellaneous objects such as old hair brushes, markers, pens, hair clips, etc. I don’t have an attachment to any of these objects, which made this container so much easier to declutter.
Another one of my rules is throw away objects that I can replace (if I really have to, but most of the time, I don’t need to replace them) within 20 km, for under $20. For instance these highlighters. These are probably 10 years old, and I kept them for just in case. But they no longer worked, so I unfortunately couldn’t donate.
Today marks my 13th week decluttering everything. It’s been a crazy journey so far. I can’t believe the year is ending in 102 days. I don’t want to get too ahead of myself, but I am looking forward to seeing what 2021 brings.
I remember when I was at my Grandparent’s house when I was younger. She had this really cool pen, and she knew how much my sister and I loved it, so she gave it to us. What was cool was his arms would able to move in circles.
My sister and I kept it for so many years, and now it no longer works. I never needed to keep it that long.
I remember when my parents took us on a road trip when I was younger. We went sight seeing, and had a lot of fun.
We went to a gift shop, where we did a bit of shopping. My sister and I bought this key chain that was shaped as a cell phone, but it was a calculator. We thought it was the coolest thing ever. Although looking at it now, it was quite ironic that it was shaped as a phone because at the time cell phones were becoming really common. We must have bought this early 2000s.
I am throwing this away because these days I have an actual calculator on my phone, and it doesn’t work anyway. I also learned that I don’t have to keep it in order to remember the road trip.
Hey everyone, unfortunately I was getting all caught up with my feels over the weekend, so I wasn’t able to post much then. Although I’m feeling a bit better now.
That being said, this is Friday’s item.
I received a lot of perfumes, body sprays a lot for my birthday and Christmas presents over my lifetime. It’s too overwhelming to have all of these different scents. I’m probably going to give them to my cousin, sister and friends. I have told people so many times to stop giving me perfumes.
It feels good to let go of these things. This is another one of an empty perfume bottle. I kept it because I thought it was really pretty, but now it’s just taking up too much space.
Digital Declutter: I have been deleting all of the apps that I no longer use anymore.
For today’s item, I found yet another hairbrush. Although this was dirtier than the previous one.
I don’t know why I bothered to carry these things with me to house to house that I have move into. It is a waste of space and energy. But I am glad that this is the last time I would need to carry unnecessary things again. I am trying to be more mindful of what I bring into my house and what I buy.
My sister bought me this for my birthday many years ago. I haven’t used it in awhile since my hair is really thick. But when I used it, I really liked it. I loved that the princess side opened up into a mirror, which I thought was pretty cool.
I was thinking of giving this to my niece, but it would need a deep clean first.
I totally forgot that I had this eye shadow. I remember when a guy friend invited me over to his friend’s birthday party. I wanted to look pretty like everyone else. Mostly because I liked this guy at the time. I’m pretty sure I spent all of this money for one night.
And now I can’t wear it since it’s at least seven years or something like that. I just found it in my container that I purged through last week. It is very freeing to get rid of these things.
