Minimalist Game Day 18

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.

This is from March the 18th.

This is an old hair product that my mom gave me so long ago. The next item is expired hand cream that I have had for a few years. The third item is an old lip gloss from several years ago. The fourth item is expired hand cream that I was given as a gift, but it was from a long time ago, so it’s best to let that go. And the last item is this container my mom gave me some snacks in, but she didn’t need it back, so I just recycled it.
The top item is an envelope I no longer need anymore. I just recycle them. On the left is a notebook, I used to write in from time to time. I’m going to recycle the pages I wrote on, and give whatever is left to my cousin. On the right is a dream journal that I plan on giving to my cousin as well.
My two old phones from back in the day. I accidentally dropped my phone, so that explains the huge cracks on the phone. I am taking to get them recycled at one of this electronic recycling drop offs.
I bought this shirt because at the time I was going through my shopping phase of my life. I loved shopping. And now I am grateful that I don’t have the desire to do much shopping, at least for clothes anymore.
I bought this shirt, because I wanted to have more dressy shirts, and dress nicer. Unfortunately this shirt doesn’t fits me since I grew a little bit, and no longer touches the top of my pants.
This used to be my favourite scrunchie, but sadly, it became a headband. It somehow came undone, and I don’t know how to put it back to the way it used to be.
More expired lip products. One is a lip balm, and the other is a lipstick.
Unfortunately I grew a little bit, so it no longer is long enough for my liking. I just know that I will get my niece into liking Harry Potter, so I am going to sit it aside for her to wear, when she is older.
More body spray. Apparently this is people’s go to present for me, that and lip balm. Which is unfortunate because I have asked for people not to get me these items. So I plan on giving this to my cousin. She might like it.
This is a Kleenex box holder. I guess they were the big rave in the 90s and early 2000s. My Grandma gave me this many years ago, but I just don’t find much use to it.

Minimalist Game Day Six

This post is from Saturday.

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 got 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.

These are my six items.

The first one is an empty perfume bottle that I have kept, instead of throwing it away. I guess I kept it since it was the first gift my boyfriend’s mom gave me.

The second one I’m going to regift to my sister, as part of her birthday present. I have a lot of perfumes, and body sprays.

The last four are various hair products, that I no longer use. My mom gave me to since she didn’t like them anymore.
