Dates: June 22-28
Items: 1 zebra print foot massager, 1 set of curtains, 5 shirts
Method of Disposal: Donated to the Young Life yard sale
I can't remember who gave me the zebra print foot massager. I hope they don't read this blog. If you do, please know I had every intention of using it and it was a very thoughtful gift. It just never made it out of the box. I'm sorry. I'm sure the new owner is loving it they way I never could.
What is Simplify Saturday?
Inspired by my latest issue of Real Simple magazine, I am on a quest to clear the clutter from our house and simplify our lives. We just have so much stuff. Stuff we're holding on to for whatever reason, tons of it. Most of the time I walk by it without even noticing but not anymore. I'm done with the clutter. I used to watch the show Hoarders and wonder how that could happen to people. How does it happen? One thing at a time. How do you prevent it? One thing at a time.
I've decided the clutter collection stops now. From May 1, 2012 to April 30, 2011, I vow to purge our house of 1 item every day for an entire year. Most of the time it will be in groups like this week, but there will be at least 365 things by the end of this experiment. The other part of my quest is to not add anything to the landfill in the process. I hope to sell, donate, freecycle, or recycle ever item. I'll post a round up each week and share how I got rid of the items.
How are your simplifying your life this week?
