Minimalist Challenge : Day 4

  1. Bathroom drawers and cabinets
  2. Books
  3. Decorations in my home
  4. Mugs

Mugs are one of those things that just accumulate and I don’t know how! Between gifts and souvenirs and them growing legs and walking into your life without you realizing it… They show up in excess!

I use mugs regularly, but the fact of the matter is, I only use one at a time. So while I do have more than one that I really like, I have a lot that I don’t need.

It is really gratifying to see how the pile of things to leave the house is growing already! And the dumpster is filling up also. I know the pile is going to grow even more when I tackle my dresser drawers tomorrow!

While I am donating a lot of the things that are leaving my life, but I need to say something about that. I am being conscious not to donate junk. Many of these places are run with volunteers (I know some of from the local stores personally) and they receive so, so, so much stuff. I am working to do my part in being respectful of their time and only donating things that are worth re-selling. I am not taking them a box of near garbage for someone else to sort through. I want to recycles and reuse as much as possible, but at the same time, the whole purpose of this is to be free from things. And I think that mindset can extend to the places these things are going.
