30-Day Minimalism Game

August 02, 2017

I wanted to pop in and share with y'all a new challenge I came across on Facebook. The 30-Day Minimalism Game is hosted by The Minimalists. I first heard about them while watching their Netflix movie, which is awesome. I don't have Netflix right now, so I'm not sure if it is still on there but if it is you have to watch it. It is very inspiring!

The goal for this challenge is to get rid of as many items as the day of the month. For example, on the first of the month you get rid of one item, on the second you get rid of two items, etc. You can sell, donate, or throw away your item(s), but they must be out of the house by the end of the day. That is the tricky part and one that I'll be blurring the lines a bit. I usually only go to the Goodwill once a week. Also, it is going to get tricky once it gets into the middle of the month.

This challenge officially started yesterday, but it will be really easy for y'all to jump right in.

I am working on the challenge along with my best friend. They recommend you play along with a challenge partner to keep you on track. She is ready to get rid of some of her kids' stuff. I am in the process of cleaning my attic so we are both in the perfect place to do this challenge.

I'll be tweeting throughout the challenge at @craftingcathair with the hashtag #Minsgame. I'll also have a master list of everything that will be out of my house by the end of the month.
