I decided to group together the last five days for the 30-Day Minimalism Game in one post as the items being purged were just so tiny.
An almost-easy day
A very easy day
More of the same…
So easy I got rid of 12…
A bit more of a challenging decision…
For Days 8 through 12 I decided to go through my box of bits and bobs and found a number of small things that didn’t work as planned or were just things I had too many of.
Day 8 - I purchased a number of these dark screws as potential decorative hangers for the cord on my copper sailor mirror - a mirror I purged months ago. Regardless, I only needed one, and only the largest worked, so I’m getting rid of most of the excess.
Day 9 and 10 - more of the same. Though two of the gold nails were part of a large pack I had purchased in order to get one to hang my moon phases calendar.
Day 11 - I had to purchase picture hangers for the back of a frame I was fixing. I only needed two but they came in a very large quantity. I’d already purged a number of them but now I’m purging all but two. (And, yes, I am aware there are 12 bits, but I’m counting them as 11.)
Day 12 - I purchased these clips as I thought they were gold-toned versions of the other chip clips I had. They are tiny. And while I could use them to hang various other items with a gold nail, I don’t like wall-clutter and can reuse the gold binder clip on my moon calendar when year ends if I have something else worth hanging.
As I can send all of these items to a family member who is an artist and hangs many things, they were easy to purge from my bits and bobs box. I’m still debating on whether to continue to go through said box to purge the many, many plain screws I have that will never be used - but as I don’t have a place to send them aside from the recycle bin, I may decide to hold onto them “just in case.”
Day 13 is TBD…
