Minimalist Game Day 16

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 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.

Day 95 of 192

Before they decided to get rid of these plastic bottles in hotel rooms, they used to provide every room with body lotion, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. Yes, they were convenient and meant that you didn’t have to haul your own stuff from your home, but at the same time it was really wasteful.

My sister went to a hotel because she went to some concert several years ago, and I forgot that she gave me this lotion. I only used once, and kept on promising me to myself that I would put on more lotion. Despite having a lot of lotion, I don’t use them as much as I tell myself, too.

I didn’t bother using this one, since I got it awhile ago, so I just threw it away.

Digital Declutter: I deleted five bookmarks on my laptop, that I no longer needed. I’ve been dedicating spending 10 minutes a day of organizing and deleting photos on my phone. Organizing them by placing them into albums. And hopefully am able to get them developed one day. Last time I checked developing photo programs at a Wal Mart wasn’t available right now. I always wanted to be able to get my photos developed with my boyfriend and build a photo album of our adventures together. I would to help my mom organize her photos as well.
