#minsgame || Day 28 || Items 379-416 || Odds and Ends || I sorted out the last of the paper bills before going paperless! I'm also finally accepting that I've lost the matches to these socks and they can no longer sit on the dryer awaiting their pair. Old alcohol that is expired, high calorie, and just not tasty is getting the boot as well. A cleared dryer, more organized buffet, and open storage in the kitchen feels amazing! πŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘πŸŒΏ .

#minsgame || Day 27 || Items 352-378 || Stacks on stacks of old bills clutter our nice buffet table in the living room. I am very much someone that prefer tangible items rather than the online bill pays, but I also want to be conscious of how much paper enters into my life. Shredding and recycling old bills and switching to online rather than mail is a good start. || πŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘πŸŒΏ
Hi there! I know it's been a while, and I wanted to give you all an update! || As some of you know, I am finishing up my last semester of my undergrad and so for the last few weeks I focused solely on my research for a conference that I attended this past week in Portland. Unfortunately, I have yet to complete the March #minsgame, but will be doing so over the next few days for you all! This experience has really shown some great aspects of having less, but also identified what methods of letting go work best for me. || xoxo The Minimalist Cottage πŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘πŸŒΏ
#minsgame || Day 26 || Items 326-351 || My significant other joined the game today and is getting rid of an old phone case, paperwork, sunglasses, and a belt! I also am getting rid of a lone boot and a very worn and outlived purse. A successful day of having less! πŸŒΏπŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘ .

#minsgame || Day 25 || Items 301-325 || Sorted through our medicine cabinet, under the sink, and our silverware drawer. Letting go of clutter and enjoying the space. πŸŒΏπŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘ .

#minsgame || Day 24 || Items 277-300 || Finished clearing off our fridge and started downsizing our home office supplies. I've never been a fan of index cards, but again, I used to have a really hard time passing up a good deal so that's why there's about 1,000 index cards here. Happy to be donating these so that someone who needs them can put them to use! || Has anyone else tackled their office/arts/crafts/scrapbooking supplies? How are you deciding what to keep and what to let go of? πŸŒΏπŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘ .

#minsgame || Day 23 || Items 254-276 || Finally hitting the back of some of those seasonal drawers! I found some empty jewelry boxes, headbands that I've never worn, some yoga pants with holes, and swim suits that have lost their elasticity. || Loving being able to have nice, neat drawers that can shut without forcing them. This lifestyle is such a relief and is really helping me break some habits of holding onto things and keeping broken or worn items for only sentimental reasons.πŸŒΏπŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘ .

#minsgame || Day 22 || Items 232-253 || Here we go! Time to catch up! I'm wrapping up my final semester of college and preparing to present at a conference in Oregon next week so it's been a little hard to keep up with the game, but I am determined to finish strong! || Here are a bunch of miscellaneous items. I cleaned out my wrapping paper box, did a run through of the cart in our bathroom, and found a sweater of my moms that I've been meaning to return for almost two years (whoops! 😊). || I love playing this game and being able to find items that I can return to friends and family or pass on to them so that they can enjoy them. πŸŒΏπŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘ .

#minsgame || Day 21 || Items 211-231 || Plastic Tupperware, burnt out candles, cracked and duplicate measuring cups, assorted notebooks, lid to baking dish that broke years ago, misc. decor, all stuff that doesn't get used and collects a whole lot of dust and space. This is perfect timing to be clearing out the last of my plastic Tupperware since I just invested in some storage jars for leftovers (finally!). || I am finally getting to a point where it's getting a little harder to let go of some items because I have that "oh, what if I need this someday" thought. Minimalism allows you to question this type of thinking and only surround yourself with practical things and appliances rather than holding onto items for the future. πŸŒΏπŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘ .

#minsgame || Day 20 || Items 191-210 || Though they are tiny and definitely more than 20 items... these little cupcake tins have been in my possession for over 5 years now and I still don't plan on using them anytime soon. Out they go! || πŸŒΏπŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘ .

#minsgame || Day 19 || Items 172-190 || I'm finally being honest with myself and admitting that I will never wear heels. I'm all about functionality and comfort and heels do not equal that in my books. All of these were bought second hand and will be donated again. Also parting with a few shirts that I'm just not in love with and old socks that have been worn past their prime. || Is anyone else enjoying having less in their closet? I'm really loving it! πŸŒΏπŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘ .
