Lessons Learned from Another Round of Mins Game

June 26, 2018

Another round of mins game is almost over - I have just 30 things for day 30 to get rid of, and I should tackle that either tonight or tomorrow.  If you're curious what I got rid of during days 1 through 29, it's highlighted on my Instagram stories.  And stay tuned to see what day 30 ends up being.

If you missed me talking about this earlier in the month, the mins game is simple - get rid of 1 thing on day 1.  Get rid of 2 things on day 2.  Up to day 30 (or 31, depending on the month - it's easiest to start with the 1st of a month so you remember the days), when you get rid of 30 things.  At the end, you will have gotten rid of 465 things, which is a huge amount.  It's not the first time I've done this, but it's not always my go to method of decluttering.  Sometimes I just like to get everything out at once, rather than a little each day.  But since my life is naturally busier as the weather gets nicer, taking little pockets of time to find things each day allowed me to keep pace. 

Summer Season Goals

I'm trying a new path today with my goal setting.  While I've been kicking ass at my 101 in 1001 list, which started in April, I haven't been doing that well with the monthly goals I've been setting.  I'm not sure if it's just the season or if a month isn't the right stretch of time for me to plan things in, but either way I'm going to try my hand (again) at seasonal goals instead, which is a 3 month time frame.  Since the seasonal goals blog link up is back, and all.  I used to link up quite often for this when it was hosted by Steph and Sara.  Now it's back, with Betsy taking Steph's place, and I think this could be a good fit for me again.  Because when the system stops working, it's always okay to try a new one.  So, here's what's on tap for the next 3 months:

32 Things I'm Happy to Live Without

June 12, 2018

As of today, I've successfully kept up with my Mins Game challenge that I talked about last week.  Which means I've gotten rid of 78 items from my already minimalist home.  (If you haven't been seeing them on Instagram stories, I have them all highlighted under the Minimalism button on my profile page.)  Of course, this isn't even close to the halfway point - if I make it to day 30, I will have gotten rid of 465 items.  Since I am including things like trashing empty containers and recycling empty boxes, as opposed to just physical things like clothes or trinkets, I think I can make it.  Because it seems that I can always find more stuff - it never stops coming in!

Tweaking the Shopping Ban

June 6, 2018

I think first up on my 'simplify everything' journey was blogging and social media, but I'm following it up quickly with my shopping ban.  I started to make the shopping ban too complicated.  Mentally, mostly.  Because obviously there's nothing complicated about 'hey spend no money,' at least on the surface.  But when I made my plans and rules for it, I just made too many loopholes and details and I didn't like keeping track of everything.  It became the opposite of simple.

Shopping Ban Update and June Goals

June 1, 2018

May was all over the place.  I started strong, stronger than April, but the second half of May was just a blur and I definitely failed all sorts of goals.  Hoping June can be a bit of a reset, starting with a big goal of zero freaking take out or delivery, but we shall see.


First, May update.
