Joining! I feel a little "ahead" on the tasks since I purged a TON this weekend. Donated 6 bags of stuff: clothes, coats, shoes, dishes... Although this weekend I was trying to show my mom, and kept thinking, "It doesn't look like it, but I got rid of soon much. You need before pics, lol". Definitely motivating to clean out more stuff.

Haha a lot us do it. DD was PL'd almost 2 years ago. I just don't go to the diaper stuff anymore. There is way more non-diaper stuff on here anyway!

Re: Mini Minimalist Challenge: 1/14-1/18

Monday 1.14.13: Purge 5 items from your own closet. DONE!
Well, not from my closet since I just cleaned it out but I did my jewelry box which is in my room . I found 5 watches, one pin, and 2 bottles of perfume. I will be taking these all to consignment though so they will go in my consignment bin until I have a decent amount to make a trip worth while.

Tuesday 1.15.13: Purge 5 items from your living room. DONE!
12 items from the kids toy bin in the living room. Mostly junk toys like happy meal toys

Wednesday 1.16.13: Purge 5 items from your entryway area (or wherever you keep jackets, shoes, hats, etc.). DONE!
I just cleaned out our coats and related items but I did find 4 things that either needed to go into storage, consignment, or donation.

Thursday 1.17.13: Purge 5 items from your car! DONE! Our car is always pretty tidy thanks to dh. I just found some random garbage to toss and some toys to put back where they belong.

Friday 1.18.13: Purge 5 items from a non-clothes closet (such as a utility closet, hallway closet, linen closet, or pantry).

BONUS TASK: Finished everything else and looking for something else to do? 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.

Re: Mini Minimalist Challenge: 1/14-1/18

This week will be a challenge for us. Or at least I think, but I'm sure I will find plenty! I did the living room today b/c we happen to be doing a lot of sitting in here today since both kids are sick. Our living room doesn't have much but it does have a toy bin that tend to accumulate lots of junk.

More gone today! More clothes, and and a bunch from the garage (it's like a big closet, right?). Some shoes I've held onto since they're nice - but they just don't fit my foot - a hat, baby burp rags & stuffed animals. A skateboard. It's good to move stuff out, and start to see my garage again. I had it all organized at our last place, then we moved and it has been a bit of a mess since.
