|Em with her pile of shoes, clothes, toys, and other little random junk she no longer wanted!|
Last month one of my goals was to get rid of 100 things in 2 weeks. About two weeks into this I realized I really didn't have a lot of things I needed to get rid of. Since I had moved recently I had already gone through most of my belongings, and with the new move (getting married) coming up I had gone through everything twice in a fairly short amount of time.
I was talking to my sister Em about this problem and how I was having a really difficult time coming up with 100 things to get rid of. She then suggested that I find 50 things and she would find 50 things. Now that was something I could do! I went through my bookshelf and got rid of a bunch of CD's and books I knew I wouldn't use and then I found a few little random things which went to the pile. Somehow the numbers added up quick and I was at 50 in no time!
Em found a lot of things to get rid of herself and she said that this was something she really needed to get done but didn't want to do. So, not only did I (somewhat) meet the goal, I also helped someone else (Em) get rid of extra junk too!!
The inspiration for this project came from the blog Dump Your Frump. I really think that despite everything it did help me get rid of a few things I really didn't need. :)
