Re: Mini Minimalist Challenge: 1/21-1/25

I pulled 12 items out of my makeup bag and nail polish stuff, and cleaned out the medicine cabinet and bathroom drawers. Woohoo!

These are great, by the way! Many are things that I don't usually think about like the email subscriptions, beauty supplies

Re: Mini Minimalist Challenge: 1/21-1/25

Playing catch up - finding it so hard to get motivated today. It is just SO cold! I just want to curl up by the fire.

Emails empty =)
Fridge...just removed 19 things! (sauces we don't use, leftovers past their prime, lettuce from last week, etc.) - correction 23 things! found a recently expired yogurt cup, a vinaigrette I don't remember making, an almost empty bottle of bbq sauce so I used it up on some ribs that were in there & I finished up our bag of milk =D We do have to grocery shop tomorrow though.

We've all been sick all week, so we're not decluttering this week. Looking forward to next week.

Re: Mini Minimalist Challenge: 1/21-1/25

I could not find anything in the fridge that needed to go. I found 3 things in the freezer. I also took everything out of the freezer and cleaned it out very well and put things back in an organized way. It made a huge difference!
I also found 8 things in my craft area I can get rid of.

Re: Mini Minimalist Challenge: 1/21-1/25

I am going to start joining you ladies! I just saw this this morning so because it is the last day, I am focusing on Day 1 and then will get back on track. I have already deleted 200 emails!! My goal is get rid of all of my unreads (84 left) and get to 700 emails (right now at 1,000). This is an area I really need to work on and didn't even realize how it was affecting. Just with what I've done so far, I feel "lighter" Thanks and I am looking forward to next weeks challenges!

Monday 1.21.13: Purge 5 items from your inbox, or unsubscribe from 5 mailings. DONE!

Tuesday 1.22.13: Purge 5 items from your fridge or freezer. DONE!

Wednesday 1.23.13: Purge 5 items from your craft supplies.

Thursday 1.24.13: Purge 5 items from your kitchen drawers or cabinets. This would also be a good time to wipe out the insides and give the outsides of the cabinets a quick wipe-down.

Friday 1.25.13: Purge 5 items from your beauty supplies (make up, perfumes, lotions, nail polishes, hair products, etc).

Ok I did all of them except my craft supplies. I have recently purged everything that i wouldn't use. I also went through the garage and finally unpacked these last few boxes from when we moved here last June. Feels good to have that done an there are many more things in the donate pile.
