In January, I set out on an initiative to get rid of excess stuff in my life.
I think I heard this on the Minimalist podcast, but the premise is to remove items that have no use or bring you no joy from your life.
So on January 1st, I found a useless trinket in my office and pitched it. Then, the next day, I found two things and the day after three things. Each day, I found items to remove from my life. I was successful except for the last two days.
I ran out of time to find 30 and 31 items to get rid of for those last two days in January.
All in all I removed 435 books, clothes, useless swag, misc items from around my house and I’m pretty sure that:
- I won’t miss any of them
- No one noticed (since there is still a lot of stuff in our house)
My plan is to continue simplifying my life in February and see if I can eliminate another 400+ items.
