Purge Challenge: Day 7

October 26th, 2011 at 03:02 pm

Tomorrow is the last day of this challenge. And to be honest, I'm glad. Locating 27 items per day is challenging and a bit time consuming. At least for someone like me that can be a bit obsessive compulsive!

Here's what I found for day 7:
1 map
1 brochure
1 necklace charm
1 set of ear bud covers
1 magazine
1 wooden handle extension
1 store member card
1 expired Entertainment book
1 pencil sharpener
1 rain poncho
1 can of lice spray
2 candles
1 sponge
14 pieces of paper

I believe that is 28 items. Geez. I am an overachiever. Forgive me.

I've noticed with this challenge that it is completely different that locating items for a garage sale. Most of the items I've decided to toss are insignificant, but yet excess stuff that really doesn't need to live with us in our home.

Those of you still participating are doing great! I know it is a tough challenge. Even one item a day is great in my book. Decluttering is really an ongoing process.

    I always considered myself good at decluttering until we decided to move earlier this year, and then I realized how much stuff we still had. We went from a 2000 sq ft home with basement to an 1300 sq ft apartment with no basement, and I have no regrets on the items we ditched.

    i just got home about a half hour ago and thought I was too tired to purge, but decided to start and see if i could do it. i found 30 items in my foyer closet and candle drawer to chuck/give away. Yay!
