I have another challenge going on at the moment. This is not a ‘what I am wearing’ challenge like the last one. This comes from here. The idea is to throw out/donate/recycle item/s for every day of the month. That means one item on Jan 1, 2 on Jan 2 etc. I think it will get harder as the numbers increase. I worked out it is 496 items for the month of January! I am ahead at the moment because I charity binned more t shirts than necessary but they will count towards the 496 goal. This is what I have tossed so far:
The things you keep! I counted the warranties as my 5 items even though there were a few more but I don’t think you should count every little thing as an item. You wouldn’t get rid of much that way.
Today, so far, I have two tiny Xmas trees that drop glitter everywhere and the Xmas cards (as one lot), so I’m calling that at three. I would normally keep the Xmas cards for next year to make sure that I send everyone a card but I do have a list and this year the cards were very thin. I have decided not to send any next year as a lot of people obviously did this year. I sent 23 and received about 8!
I am looking forward to getting rid of stuff in this challenge. Oh and by the way, you can’t buy anything that’s not essential. I think that is more of a challenge for me than throwing stuff out. I’ll keep you posted.
