Well, it’s the first day of May today, which means that I finished my declutter challenge yesterday. It was a pretty crazy/fun ride. I got rid of a lot of stuff that I had been collecting, some of it I hadn’t even used for years and years. It was so great to be able to look through my things and unload needless items.
If you followed along, or if you participated some days, that is so awesome! I hope that you feel as good about the challenge as I did. It was so nice to be able to do this.
Last year, when we moved from our one bedroom apartment into our 4 bedroom/2 story house, one of our friends who was helping us move made a joke about us being horders. I’m not going to say that I did this challenge BECAUSE of that comment, but it was definitely a driving factor. I hope that this challenge will help make me more mindful in my spending as well. I don’t need lots and lots of things, and I’d rather have quality over quantity, something that I never really thought about before. When I was younger, I would go shopping and just buy buy buy for the sake of buying. When I went shopping, I needed to bring something home with me. I am so glad that I am not like that anymore.
Now the real challenge will be: can I do this again next year?? 😉
