500 Things Project – An Update

I shared earlier this month my goal to eliminate 500 things from my home over the month of February. I think this challenge is perfect for my current place in the minimizing process. I’m not sure that a numbered challenge would have worked well in the beginning, but now it’s forcing me to get rid of all those things I was reluctant to part with. I’m not sure what the count is, but I’m definitely making progress. I have two bags of clothes and several boxes of things to sell and donate. I’ve also trashed a lot of “sentimental treasures.” Growing up, I kept scrap books and a memory box. I went through all of it, whittling down my large collection to the few items that actually mean something to me. I had been saving a lot of it even though I couldn’t remember its significance. I’m definitely beginning to feel a change in my mindset about what I want in my home. My goal this week is to begin listing things on Craigslist, Ebay and Nextdoor, and to make a trip to Half Price Books and Clothes Mentor. Hopefully I can recoup a bit of the money I spent on all this stuff!

Are you participating in the challenge? How’s it going?

    Hello,
    I just found your pinterest profile and visited your site from there. Your “lettering” board came up and I followed it, and then quickly followed your entire profile. There’s not a thing on there that I don’t like, it feels weird to find someone so similar.

    I don’t know a better way to say that, but I am not trying to be creepy! I rarely follow people on Pinterest as it is, and I can’t remember the last time I left a comment on a blog.. but it’s like your taste IS mine and I had to tell you, I just did!

    I hope you receive this message well. Have a wonderful weekend, and thank you for doing the hard curating work for me! 😀
