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.

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 Wednesday March 17th.

Expired lip care (lip balms and lip sticks).
A photo album, and a notebook. I plan on giving them to my cousin.
A Christmas present from my Dad. He bought me a box of cookies.

I had parted ways with a lot of clothes that I haven’t worn in a really long time. It is best for me to pass them on to someone who will enjoy these items than I ever did. I like to give them to my Grandma, because she knows a lot of people and neighbours that always need clothes. I feel fortunate enough to be able to help others.

This is from Tuesday March 16th, 2021.

  • A box that had a bunch of tea samples in it
  • Five hair ties
  • Five bags
  • Three old lip sticks
  • A photo album
  • A photo album box

My mom likes to have gift bags, I, on the other hand, prefer not to have gift bags. I just feel like they are a waste space. So I gave her the gift bags.

I plan on giving my cousin the photo album. And I plan on returning the photo album box to Grandma.

The lip products are expired, so I threw them away.

The hair ties I plan on giving them to my sister.

This is from Monday March 15th.

I got rid of the other envelopes, too. I got rid of three small toys in my surprise bag, I bought it for the chocolate. An old lipstick, and some hair elastics. I bought myself scunchies, so I no longer need any hair elastics.

Day 2 of 192

It’s another day of the daily decluttering challenge.

I’m still sorting through my cosmetics. I get a lot of lipsticks at Christmas, despite telling people that I would rather buy my own cosmetics. That is something that not just one person buys me, but my Mama, and my Grandma buy me lipstick and other cosmetics, where things just become too much. And sometimes they don’t buy me the right shade. My Mama must have inherited this impulsive shopping habit from her mother. A lot of times they buy things for the sake of these items being inexpensive or on sale.

Although I am happy because I have heard my Grandma say that she wants Christmas to be less commercialized for us, which is fair. She will still get us a present, but it would just money. I am totally fine with that, because holidays have become a bit too commercialized in my family, and I don’t like having a lot of stuff anymore.

Here’s another one of my lipstick that I am departing with.
