Okay friends, I got rid of soooooo much stuff today. I have a ton of things to donate/sell and even more things that just got thrown away. I don’t even know how many things I got rid of. But I honestly probably finished out the entire challenge. I still have a few things I want to get rid of so I’ll probably do that tomorrow.
Hey all! Sorry for my complete absence the last few days, I came home on break this past friday and it’s kind of been a whirlwind of busy. But I have been clearing things out. I’ve gotten rid of mostly clothes while I’ve been here. I have a lot of clothes sitting in drawers at my house that I haven’t touched for months, so they’re gone now. I’m going to take them to a consignment store in the next few days and see if I can’t get a few dollars for them. Other than clothes, I’ve mostly just gotten rid of a ton of random junk. Odd bits of yarn, some old dishes, some shoes, and a few other bits and pieces.
I think tomorrow I’m gonna tackle the stuff at my dad’s house, which is where the majority of my home junk is so that’ll be an all day process. I’ll probably just clear it all and add it up for the next couple of days.
I have to say, getting rid of all this stuff is making me feel a lot lighter and happier.
Today, I picked my items while I was packing to leave for break tomorrow and I found a lot of things under my bed to toss.
Today I’m getting rid of 1. an old really shitty painting I did 2. some random buttons I bought for a project I never made 3. some tea I bought when I was sick and then never finished 4. a random container 5. a ton of lipsticks I never wear 6. also some bronzers/eyeshadows I don’t wear either 7. a bunch of shopping bags I was hoarding and 8. this weird diy thing I acquired somehow that I didn’t even know what it was.
One week down. I feel like I haven’t gotten rid of anything. But I’ve rid myself of 28 things. They haven’t been big things, which might contribute to my feeling like I haven’t gotten rid of anything, but also the things I’ve thrown out have been things I never use, so that’s probably contributing as well. I’ve been trying not to hit my closet but I ended up in there tonight. Today I’m getting rid of…
a pullover I bought from goodwill that ended up being too long for my liking, two beanies, a scarf I made that’s to short to use, a magazine I was holding on to for some reason, a tank top that’s too big and a flannel that’s too big as well.
Today I’m getting rid of a travel mug, a paper sculpture I made last semester, three books (they aren’t mine and I’m finally going to give them back) and a notebook i made but never used.
I don’t really have that many non-essential things at school with me and I’m finding this to be increasingly difficult and it’s only day five!! So I’m looking forward to being home on spring break next week where I’ll have a lot of things to get rid of. But, for today…
I’m getting rid of a pile of random dust masks, a bottle of hairspray that I don’t use, a pair of shoes that are super cute but I never wear, a foundation I don’t wear and a backpack.
Today, I’m going to get rid of 2 head scarves I no longer wear, another record I don’t listen too and an eye shadow palette I never I use.
