Here is a comment I received recently
A good friend of mine started “The Summer of 1000 Things” about three years ago. She challenges us all to get rid of 1000 things each summer. It sounds like a lot but when you can hit that number just clearing out an old desk or dresser once you start thinking dried up pens and markers, bottles of paint or nail polish, mismatched socks, etc. It really is amazing what we keep for no good reason whatsoever. My whole basement is full of “just in case I need it” items. I’m trying. It’s amazing how emotional it is to let go of things. Thanks for the inspiration! I’ll be following you!
How cool is this idea?!
So instead of focusing on having just a certain number of items, maybe we can focus on getting rid of the stuff we just no longer need or have a use for.
Here is how I am doing this:
I simply have a giant storage container and anything I come across that no longer has any use goes into the container. It is an ongoing process.
That’s it. So simple.
So what do you think about this idea for helping to declutter and get rid of unwanted items?
Are you in for the Challenge?
Let me know what you think in the comments.
Please share this post and while you’re at it do what all the smart kids are doing and Like it too!
Thanks and have an awesome day.
