Day 153 of 193

This is Sunday’s item.

This one was an easy item for me to part with. It’s super old, and expired as I have bought a few years back, and that it has been stashed away in a container.

Some things are really easy to throw away than others. But throwing away many items like this is, builds strength and confidence to learn to be comfortable with having less. Living with less, means less stress, and a clearer mind. It feels really amazing to let go of things, even if it’s just lip balm.

Hey everyone, happy Friday! I hope everyone has an amazing day.

Today’s item that I have to part with is this old lip balm that I found. I recall buying this about five years, and stuffed it away in a container. I finally found it. This was an easy item to depart with, since it is expired, and I haven’t seen it for a few years now, so it won’t be missed.

I have a lot of lip balms I no longer use, mostly because of how old these are. When you are starting your decluttering mission, it is best to start with items that you won’t miss, like expired make up, medication, etc.

Then once you have gained the strength and confidence, you can start tackling items that hold a bit more value to you, like clothes.

Whenever you start a big, new task, it’s always best to start small, and to always celebrate your accomplishments along the way.

This is Saturday’s item.

When I was going through my possessions, I found some of my old lip balms. I have no idea as to why I have kept these. I probably had these for seven years, maybe even longer.

But the best thing about starting with stuff like expired items, whether it’s medication, make up or anything else. It is easy for us to discard these items. When we start with these items, we are building the strength and confidence for the harder items.

If you like to start your own decluttering journey, start with these items, and allow yourself to build up confidence. Remember you don’t have to purge your life in one day, always start small and keep on moving forward.

Even if you remove a few items from your life, you will be able to notice the benefits of living with less.

Day 9 of 193

Hi everyone! I forgot to write about this yesterday, so here’s another a double post of the Daily Decluttering!

I am done sorting through my cosmetics. Yay!

My goal is to never own this many make up products at once. It was just too overwhelming to look at all of the time.

Day 8 of 193

I am back on track. Starting the week off fresh.

I have been enjoying making these small changes in my life. I feel like it’s the small changes that has the bigger outcomes. I feel like now is the best time since some time next year, my boyfriend and I will be moving out to be on our own. I just feel like I don’t need to take all of these things with me. I have been slowly decluttering things from my life over the past years. I really like the idea of living with less things.

Day 7 of 193

Hey everyone, I had an eventful weekend so I did get a bit caught up to share my Sunday’s item for my decluttering mission.

I have decided that it is best to start fresh, especially with my cosmetics. It is dangerous to apply expired make up.

How is everyone doing with their decluttering mission? I may not be feeling lighter, but I know that my make up tin is.

I read in Marie Kondo’s book The Illustrated Guide to Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up that she says to thank all of the items you discard. I love that book.

Day 6 of 193

Hi all! I hope everyone is still on track with their de-cluttering goals. Today marks day six of our journey of the 192 days de-cluttering challenge.

I decided to throw away my lip balm that I have had for a long time — too long, to be honest.
