November Minsgame - Finale
So I'm not entirely sure how it is December 15th already! But time is going faster and faster. Despite my blogging failure, I did continue the November Minsgame. This is my final collage, but I've been continuing to go through stuff and get rid of things (or at least I have big boxes in the basement that need to be taken to Goodwill and consignment, etc). It's progress! Here's my last few days:
22: Socks - okay, I don't wear socks that often. Unless I'm wearing boots or tennis shoes, I'm probably sockless. So why do I have a large drawer full of socks? No one knows. I still have way more than I should, but I got rid of about half.
23: More closet cleanout. I have a big bag for ThredUp and another set I am taking to consignment, hopefully today.
24/25: CDs. I had sold a bunch of CDs a couple months ago, and these were the stragglers that CD Tradepost didn't want. I sent them in to DeCluttr, and am making about $12.
26: Baby stuff that we didn't end up using. Not pictured because it is in a bag in the baby's room and he is napping. I'm hoping to take this to consignment today, too.
27: More random stuff to Goodwill. Since I started this, I'll just see things in my house that I have no idea why we have kept. Also, John cleaned out his closet.
28/29: So many books! We rarely re-read books, so why do we have bookshelves full of them? Again, no one knows. I took these (and some DVDs) to sell and made $30!
30: DVDs. I took these to CD Tradepost and made $20.
Honestly, I'm embarrassed at how easy it was to do this project in November. I don't miss anything that we got rid of, and our home is still quite full. I'm hoping to keep this up by tackling different areas of the house, pulling everything out, and getting downsized/organized. I'll never be a real minimalist, but I want to at least keep an eye on things so the "stuff" doesn't take over.
