Less is Now 30 day Challenge (Week 1)

Check out my first minimalism post if you haven’t already for a little context.


Day 1 – get rid of 1 item

Day 2 – get rid of 2 items

Day 3 – get rid of 3 items

And so on for 30 days

After 30 days create a blog post on your experience with some of the items you got rid of and how you now feel. Even if you can only get rid of 1 item per day, then please still partake. Start anytime, just has to be 30 consecutive days.

Heres week one – total of 28 items

DAY 1: A one year old instant pot I’ve only used once. I gave it to my daughter who is totally excited. This was a bit tough because my sister gifted it to me for helping her move across the country, so I did feel a bit guilty getting rid of it. I think this emotion will come up often, but the flip side is it isn’t doing any good sitting in my cupboard.
Day 2: Instant pot yogurt cups/rack and some instant pot grippy thingies🤪
DAY 3: See day 1😁. Yes, I’m getting a lot of mileage out of day 1.
Day 4: 2 hats, 2 pair of pants
Day 5: 5 pillows
Day 6: 4 pillowcases, 1 small blanket, and 1 backpack. I’m not cheating on the pillowcases…really…I got 30 days folks🤪
Day 7: 4 Toque’s, 1 pair of gloves,and 2 garden flags

Alrighty then, week one is DONE! I was surprised going through closets and bins and finding stuff I haven’t used in years. It’s awesome seeing the open space now left behind!

Hope everyone is doing well,

  3. Remember that your local animal shelter or vet would be delighted to get any towels or blankets
    ! Those babies in the shelters need all the snuggles they can get.

  4. I only have problems with my clothes! I buy quality items, and never wear them out!
    Hard to part with them!
    Everything else is easy! I LOVE getting rid of things and see open spaces!

  5. Very cool! This is super exciting! We have a huge collection of things here for good will. I’ve also been doing some organizing too. Like in depth organizing so I haven’t gotten far but I’m doing it right. Feels so good!

  7. woooow, now THIS Is a very cool project! I Wish i could do it but i literally gave away 90% of my possessions (mostly books and clothes) when I left the US in the Fall, with my whole Life packed into 2 suitcases ^^ But if i realize one Day that I am swimming in possessions, I’m definitely doing this! xxxs Anne
