are you a packrat or a purger? do you have clutter or clean lines? do you need to do a massive spring cleaning in your house and/or life?
ever since moving into a house and moving again, been trying to become more of a minimizer and less of a collector.
i read something somewhere that seemed to make sense regarding my wanting to have a spring cleaning and purge the house of the clutter and junk.
modifying it for my own challenge, i’ll throw it to you and see if you want to play along. especially those of you with a house and kids.
get rid of one thing a day,
whether you give to a friend, donate, recycle, trash, or sell it.
one a day.
if you bring something new into your house/life, get rid of two that day.
one for each new thing you add. (not counting food/groceries, obviously)
interested? want to chronicle it? maybe i could – along with regular blog posts –
list the item i got rid of each day or even list it here to see if anyone wants/needs it first?
already i got rid of caps in this post. but they’ll be back, i just wanted to try something new.
ok, we’re about to buy a new item to reward doodles for using the potty (first poop on the potty, sorry to you non-parents, but a big day here). so that means today, two things at least have to go out.
this is not as easy as i thought. i just looked around and felt like steve martin at the end of the jerk. i’m gonna take this lampshade…and the dog…walking out naked from the house. couldn’t find the clip on-line yet. you may know what i mean.
anyway, ok, sound interesting? you wanna eliminate your clutter? streamline your life? play along…
