Day 22 – Summer 2018 Mins Game 

It is starting to become more challenging.  I did another cull of my bookshelf and I may have to get creative for the next eighty remaining days.  

Today’s purge included the following:


1-10 Magnets

11-14 Books 

15-16 Magnets

17 A stale pack of Halls

18-19 Salad toppings

20 Expired lemon juice

21-22 Old Batteries

Day 21 – Summer 2018 Mins Game 

Today’s purge is a biggie!  I culled the closet to see what I could find & I found a lot.  I probably could have selected a few more items and I may before the end of this minimalism challenge, but I still find myself attached to some things, which I want to give another chance.

Do you ever find yourself holding a piece of clothing saying “I haven’t worn you in well over a year, BUT I do plan to wear you again”.  That was me tonight. 


You will find in the above picture the following items:

1-7 T-shirts

8-9 Hats

10-13 Shoes

14 Garment bag

15 Pillow Case

16-19 Sweaters

20 A running jacket 

21 A fleece 

It is all going to charity and I was able to set aside a special bag containing the nicest items of this purge to give to a friend’s friend who struggles financially.  

I have now reached a total of 231 items purged from my space.  It feels good to get rid of stuff.

Day 20 – Summer 2018 Mins Game 

Today is day 20 of the #minsgame; it is getting harder, but not so hard that I am coming up empty.  

Today’s purge involved the bathroom cupboards and I came up with the following: 


1-10 A variety of skin products to be tossed 

11-12 Choker necklaces

13 Old crusty contact lens container 

14-16 Hair clips

17 Travel toothpaste in packaging 

18 EOS hand cream in packaging 

19 Nail brush never used in packaging 

20 Bracelet 

All of the products in original packaging will be going to charity, including accessories.

Day 19 – Summer 2018 Mins Game 

I almost didn’t post this today as I am dead beat from the heat wave which has infected Nova Scotia.  The humidity is sucking the life force out of me, and thank God for air conditioning which I have at home, sadly not in the archaic building I work in.  

Today’s purge is another mish mash of pure randomness. 


1-9 Batteries to recycle 

10-12 Ketchup packs (I only like ketchup on my KD) 

13-16 Mugs

17 Dish towel

18 Instruction manual on an aromatherapy mister

19 La pièce de résistance – my Britney Spears magnet


Yep, that is my Britney, but I am moving into a place with a stainless steel fridge and having magnets all over stuff does not jive with my minimalism jam.  I plan to donate Britney for auction to raise money for kitty rescues.  I would totally bid on her.  

She will forever live in my iPod and in my memories…

Day 18 – Summer 2018 Mins Game

I was away for a few days visiting my parents in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia.  I am behind by four days for the Mins Game, but I am going to continue on instead of playing catch up.  

Today’s purge for day 18 are the following: 


1. A wall ornament from Thailand 

2. Sweater

3. Red velvet blazer 

4. Old IPad box 

5. Stamps 

6. Sponge 

7. Coffee mug

8. Crochet thing???

9. Baby shower ornament from my Niece’s birth 

10. Christmas ornament 

11. Hairspray

12. Expired sun screen 

13. Nail file 

14. Wash cloth for dishes 

15 – 18. T-shirts

Today’s purge was a mish mash of stuff. I am excited to look at getting rid of some bigger items and create more space.  I love purging; it is a great release.  Especially after I visit my parents who hold onto everything…  Visiting their home is pure chaos.  Clutter is chaos.  Clutter is even known to increase depression; I can see why!  

Back to purging until day 30!

Day 17 – Summer 2018 Mins Game 

I am beyond exhausted tonight, but I have a purge of 17 items.  


1 Wash cloth

2 Wonder Woman Pez Dispenser 

3-8 Coat hangers 

9-12 Books

13-16 T-shirts 

17 Wrap blanket 

Not much of a blog tonight.  I feel overwhelmed by how much stuff I need to get rid of, and there always seems to be more which needs to go.

Day 16 – Summer 2018 Mins Game

I love fun socks, but I probably own over 60 pairs and that is not including the 16 pairs I am giving away.  It is a sacrifice to the fun socks god.  

There are a few pairs I picked up while visiting South Korea.  Everything in SK is so adorable & since I am 5’10” the only clothing I was able to fit in were their socks.  They take cute to a whole new level.  

Today’s purge were 16 pairs of socks.  


So long Hello Kitty socks!
