Minimalist Game Day 21

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 Sunday March 21st.

Ten old and expired body lotions.
Empty tea tins.

1 colouring book for my niece’s birthday
1 shirt and 1 pair of pants for my niece’s birthday

This was given to me as part of a Christmas present last year. It’s a gift card holder, but I don’t really have any purpose for this.
These are old tea samples that I have bought a little while ago. All of these teas were delicious.
These pajamas pants were given to me by my Grandma, but I just had too many pajamas at the time to really appreciate these. I am going to send this back to my Grandma, and see if she can find someone to appreciate these more than I did.

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.

I was organizing my important papers, and I decided I didn’t need these envelopes anymore. I don’t even know why I even bothered to keep in them in the first place. But I am starting to feel lighter with letting these things go. I feel happy with my progress so far. I am proud of myself for making it this far in the journey already.

In the first photo, I am giving away…

  • Eight tins of tea, two of them I gave to my sister, so she can fill them up for part of her daughter, and step son’s surprise for Easter.
  • A dancing flower, it dances when it has sun shining on it. I think my niece will get a kick out of that.
  • A pumpkin for my cousin, she loves Halloween. I don’t have any purpose for it anymore.
  • A candle that got recycled
  • This light up butterfly that I will ask my cousin if she wants to have this, too. I kind of grow out of it.
  • A pair of socks that I don’t wear.

Is anyone decluttering their belongings right now for Spring cleaning? I would love to know about your journey, and if you need any help.

At that time, I was going through my jewelry box, sorting through things I no longer wanted. I have gotten a large amount of jewelry such as necklaces, earrings, and bracelets for birthdays, and Christmas, and various other occasions. I don’t really wear much jewelry anymore. Mostly because I work at restaurants, and cafes, and we weren’t allowed to wear that. And now, I don’t really go out, so I don’t wear any.

I plan on letting my cousin go through my jewelry and seeing if she wants anything. And then I let my mom, and Grandma go through it afterwards. And then after that, whatever remains, my Grandma can clean and disinfect it, and see if she knows anyone that would want the rest.

How is everyone’s decluttering process going?

Top Ten Tuesdays #28 – March 9th, 2021

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

The rules are simple: Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to http://www.thatartsyreadergirl.com/ in your Top Ten Tuesday post.

This week is all about Spring Cleaning Freebie. This can be about books that you plan on donating, books you want to remove from your To Be Read List either by reading them, or removing their list due to lack of interest, or time.

I plan to talk about books I would like to read by the end of the year. I would like to read more classical books. Mind you, I know not everyone of these books are classical books.

I have read this book in school, but this is one of my favourite books, so I would love to read it again soon!

What are some of the books that you plan on reading this year?

Day 60

This lesson was learned on Monday.

Since Monday was the first day of the new month, it is important to realize that we are granted a new start. With the month of March, comes spring cleaning, and getting more organized with your house, and your life. It’s time to plant your seeds, and blossom into the beautiful flower you hope to be.

I have been working and thinking of ways I can organize my room. To me, the best way to organize anything is by getting a lot of things. It’s easier because then you have less things to worry about, and organize. Even though spring isn’t going to arrive for another few weeks, it is never too early to start spring cleaning. I am currently working on going through my clothes that I haven’t worn in awhile. Especially since I will be making the transition from my winter clothes to my spring and summer clothes within the upcoming weeks. I love the feeling of things being clean and organized. I love this time of year. Although I do a lot of cleaning and organizing throughout the year, too.

Today, I will try my best to get a jump start on organizing for Spring Cleaning. It is never too early to start, and you don’t have to wait for the arrival of spring to want to organize your things, and household. All I need is some good music, and delicious snacks to get me through the organization process.
