Shopping Ban 2019…

I have attempted a shopping ban a few times over the past few years, and I have failed.  I don’t think you can go hog wild on ceasing to shop all together unless you have a reasonable outline of what is allowed and what is not allowed, and you check in monthly for accountability.  I […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Day 18 – Summer 2018 Mins Game

Day 17 – Summer 2018 Mins Game

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 […]

Day 15 – Summer 2018 Mins Game

I have never been much of a collector, but over a decade ago I fell in love with the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series & I was obsessed.  I bought fan fiction, the complete box set on DVD, I had magnets, magazines, Xbox video games and action figures.  Yes, I majorly geeked out on Buffy.  […]

Day 13 – Summer 2018 Mins Game 

I am trimming everything down in my life as I have so much stuff I cannot use it all.  Even my knickers’ drawer is bursting at the seams.  I work out a lot so my full back panties are rarely worn.   I am not throwing these out and yes, I am giving them away. […]
