30 in 30 Days Challenge!

January 30th, 2010 at 06:39 pm

Well, I guess the month is not officially over, but I am calling my part of the challenge over. I was able to get rid of 35 things. For my dresser and closet, it helped me to clear out some space so I can see better what I actually have. As far as saving money, I think that would be it there. If I can see what clothes I actually do have, I won't be so tempted to go and buy more. A feng shui expert I know does say that clutter represents stuck "chi" or energy. So getting rid of clutter can help with that, too.

- gave all clothes to charity, except for a threadbare pair of socks
- gave a lot of plastic bags to charity
- gave 2 books to charity
- recycled some old magazines and one water-damaged book
- took old receipts, old checks, old deposit slips, and junk mail to a place where they are guaranteed to be shredded
- recycled old insurance information packet
- threw away old non-working marker

How did you all do? How did it help you?

    You did better than me! I tried selling a few things but no takers, so i threw out an old sander, a cordless drill, some rusty switchplates, a toilet snake and a book, most recently, but i know it didn't add up to 30.

    It's been going well on the selling, I know I recycled plenty of items and threw quite a few things out as well. I actually didn't track the non sales items...just to time consuming!

    We just moved from a larger apartment to a smaller one, so we are culling like nobody's business! There is a lot of stuff that we can get rid of and never miss, and in the country where we live there are a lot of people in need, so we won't even be selling it. It will offer us some insurance of more space in the apartment, and the knowledge that we have helped somebody out, so that will be good...
