A minimalism game

October 8, 2013

Have you ever had the feeling that your home is less like a home and more like a old storage facility? Well, that is what I've felt like over the last little while. In the last few months I've been awful in the area of collecting more junk around my apartment. Life has gotten busy again, and not that I'm using that as an excuse, BUT I'm going to anyways.  I've noticed that I have a lot of extra boxes, bags, tags, trinkets and everything in between pilling up on my shelves and storage room.

Good thing for my man finding this cool challenge that the Minimalists put on their site. See it below:

Essentially, the game is simple. You throw away a certain amount of things depending on the day. For example, on the first day of a given month you throw away one item, the second day you throw away two, the third day you would throw away three, etc.  The challenge is to see how far in the month you can get, and even more fun if you play the game with someone else and see who gets farther.  If you end up making it a whole month (lets say a 30 day month) you will end up getting rid of 465 things!

While I'm not getting my hopes up that I'll reach day 30 this month, I am already on a pretty good roll of 36 items. I am challenging my boyfriend to this and I will let you know who ends up winning! *cough* me. Haha

Who else would be willing to do this?

  1. I'm having enough trouble with my 52 weeks project (I'm so behind haha) If you make it to the end of the month that will be insane! Keep us all updated on how much stuff you end up getting rid of!
