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

So I unsubscribed from 32 enewsletter/alerts. I still have about 7,000 more emails to wade through, but relaxing time is over for dd. Boy, how I miss her needing naps.

Maybe just dump them all & start fresh? I'm sure if it is important, they will email you again (and again).

I don't have the guts, lol.

I'll just keep sorting bit by bit.

I probably wouldn't either. I have silly tendencies & have to do mine at least weekly. It bugs me to have inbox clutter.

Still working on my inbox. Did the fridge today. Deep cleaned the bathroom instead of the craft supplies because I have yet to build my supply back up! I think I will tackle the top of the microwave instead of the make-up...only have necessities there too.

Loving this!

Cleaned out the fridge- it was pretty clean as we are pantry eating this week, but I threw away 3 things and cleaned out three containers of leftovers. I also realized that I had defrosted some strip steaks that were about to go bad, so I'm using that to make fajitas tonight

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

Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday tasks are finished and the kitchen window is cleaned.
I purged 31 items from the fridge. Guess I hadn't done that since Christmas. oops.
There likely won't be much for me to find in the craft room as I just moved stuff in there last week after an initial purge, but I'll give it another look-see. I won't substitute another area as tomorrow and Thursday are crazy days.

One way to more quickly sort through inbox is to sort by name, then is usually easy to see groups of junk mail and delete by the pageful.

I did the bathroom today. I found 8 things to get rid of in the course of about 2 minutes. (That was the time I had available )
