Re: Mini Minimalist Challenge: 2/18-2/22

I'm going to post all of the challenges I've posted so far. If you're looking for something else to work on, are just joining and want to purge more, or if this week's challenges aren't your cup of tea, here's more that we've done already.

* 5 holiday items
* 5 items from your bathroom drawers/cabinets
* 5 items from your desk/office/mail space
* 5 items from your pantry
* 5 items from your laundry room
* 5 items from your cleaning supplies
* 5 items from your purse and/or diaper bag
* 5 items from kids' closets
* 5 items from your children's toys and books
* 5 items from your diapering supplies
* 5 items from your own closet
* 5 items from your living room
* 5 items from your entryway area
* 5 items from your car
* 5 items from a non-clothes closet
* 5 items from your inbox, or unsubscribe from 5 mailings
* 5 items from your fridge or freezer
* 5 items from your craft supplies
* 5 items from your kitchen drawers or cabinets
* 5 items from your beauty supplies
* 5 media items (DVDs, CDs, etc.)
* 5 items from your dishes and utensils
* 5 items from your pet supplies
* 5 books
* 5 items from your photos or scrapbooking supplies
* 5 items from your power cords & chargers
* 5 items from your shoes and other outdoor accessories (hats, sunglasses, mittens, etc.)
* 5 items from your jewelry box/accessories
* 5 items from your bedroom nightstands, dressers, and shelves (or from any other area in your bedroom that needs it)
* 5 (more) items from your kids' toys
* 5 items of paper clutter
* 5 items from a bedroom that needs attention
* 5 items from a closet of your choice
* 5 items from your dining room
* 5 items from an area of your choice

Bonus Tasks that we've done so far:
* Pick one room and wipe down the windows (don't get too picky, just what you can easily get to) and then dust the sills.
* Give your front door(s) a good wipe down, and clear off your front porch (sweep and/or shovel, and put away anything that shouldn't be there). It's the first thing people see as they come into your home.
* Lift up those couch cushions and take a look at what might be lurking in there. Get out the vacuum and clean them up well. This would also be a good time to check out what's underneath the couch and vacuum under there, too.
* Finish a project that needs finishing (whether it's a household project, or a craft project, or anything of that nature). Devote some time this week to get it done.
