This is my 4th month playing the minimalist game. I've been seriously purging since January 2011. The bulk of our stuff has left within the last 1 1/2 yrs. I'm getting close to being done. I'm purging 80 items this week.
You may notice a trend in the areas that I'm working this week. They are things that came in and left right away, holiday, my grandchildren's toys/puzzles/books, kitchen, and food storage. I'll share pictures of my food storage when I finished my project which will probably be tomorrow. I should share pictures of my grandkids stuff too. It might be nice to share how to make your home fun without it looking like children live with you. LOL
A tank top and food items.
These are things that entered my home and are leaving right away.
A hotel sheet accidentally brought home after our trip. The magazines are subscriptions that don't belong to us but are delivered to our home. A book I bought over the weekend at a yard sale but already own. The plastic spoons from the wedding of a fellow homeschool family. My husband and I volunteered 6 hours a couple weeks ago prepping, serving, and cleaning up the food for the reception. I used my serving dishes and crockpots so I had extra prep and clean up at home for the wedding.
I went through all my grandchildren's toys and books in the living room. I think 10 toys, 7 games/puzzles, and 15 books is more than enough.
