If you are joining in, let me know! Jeff is still in the game, too. I should mention a few rules I made up for myself to make sure I get the most out of this.
– I’m not buying anything (non-consumable) during this challenge. I don’t want to immediately fill in what space I’ve made.
– I decided not to count things like the baby/toddler clothes and infant car-seat I’m getting rid of because those things just get immediately replaced. (Unless it was baby stuff I was planning to hoard for the memories).
– Hardly any of this stuff will end up int he trash: I can recycle, donate, Freecycle and sell almost everything. Hopefully other people can make use of this stuff.
I hope you join in if you haven’t already! It feels great! If the amount of items feels like too much for you – how about one item per day for the whole month? You can do it!
