So, in an effort to get rid of some stuff, I’ve decided to do the Minimalism Game. Here are the rules:
- Grab a friend / family member and have them join the game (or join one of the many Facebook groups the Minimalists have if you don’t have anyone willing to do it with you, like me).
- On day 1, you get rid of 1 thing. On day 2 you get rid of 2 things, and so on and so forth, until the 31st when you get rid of 31 things. The items must be out of your house by midnight each day.
- Whoever can keep it up the longest wins. If you both do it until the end you both win.
Let’s see how far I can keep it up, bit worried about the daily deadline, especially on my busy work days, but I think I’ll just take it easy and get rid of the stuff when I can.
Interested? Why not give it a go?
If you do, share it! If you want to do it this May, look up the Declutter Squad on Facebook, that’s where I’m sharing the experience with a few more people online. We’re going to post photos of everything we get rid of, so why not join us?
Here’s a sketch of an old character, because this blog was about overcoming my fear of drawing and I want to show you my progress. It’s been tricky but I think that decluttering my life has been playing a bit part in getting back into doodling.
