30-Day Minimalism Game: Day 13

Welcome to my 13th day of the 30-Day Minimalism Game.

I am almost half of the way through - though not nearly halfway done given the quantity of items in the second half of this 30-day game. But I'm still feeling hopeful.

I did, however, do what I think of as "cheating" for today's purge.

Day 13


Today I got rid of: 1 and 2) Rubbermaid food containers (recycle); 3) Threadbare not-able-to-salvage pillowcase (discard/recycle); 4 and 5) Two hangers; 6-13) Cable clips (give away).

The two containers were old and smelled of food and dish detergent. The pillowcase is a favorite but trying to sew the rips and tears caused the fabric to rip and tear. The two hangers were getting a bit too flimsy to hold the two PFDs they held, so I've moved them to aluminum hangers and am letting these two go. And the cable clips were purchased two years ago for my husband's desk cables. One was used but didn't stick to the desk and the cable kept falling to the floor. The rest of these have been sitting in a drawer, and are now being given away to a family member who might have a desk that these will actually adhere to.

Why do I feel like I cheated? Because those eight cable clips should have counted as just one item since they were on one sheet. I thought about taking them out of the packaging so that it would look more like eight separate items and make me feel justified at calling them eight, but oh well... at least I didn't pull the lids off the containers so I could call those four instead of two.

To be continued...
