    Mins Game: Day 21
.
.
Yesterday was more difficult than I expected it to be.  I sorted through my old school folders.  I want to make room in our home for our family and that means that I need to confront my propensity to organize and keep everything and, instead, let go of things that don’t improve the quality of our lives anymore.  Just because I saved it, doesn’t mean I still need it.
.
.
I let go of just around half of my old school work.  I did my best to be judicious about what I kept, limiting it to sentimental projects and work that I was either proud of or made me laugh (like my overly enthusiastic, extremely detailed seventh grade report on zinc). I have a habit of saving things that aren’t relevant or helpful because I’m convinced that having these relics are the only way to connect to my past.  Logically, I know that’s not the case, but emotionally it can be painful for me to let go.
.
.
I discovered that there were still quite a few things that trigger vivid memories that I’m not quite ready to let go of.  I also discovered that I have quite a bit of unresolved grief that I need to deal with.  It all sort of snuck up on me.  I thought my biggest opponent would be my inability to let go, not my ability to defer grief.

    Day 22.  I don’t usually include “consumables” in my minimizing counts, but since I’ve been holding on to these for far too long I’ve decided they count.  The deodorants I’ve stopped using and switched to a brand that has no aluminum. Fortunately I have a friend that uses the same brand so they won’t go to waste. The metal pump bottle and glass water bottle I’ve held onto because they could be reused, but the truth is I don’t have a use for them and they’re just taking up space. And the soaps, I’m just weirdly picky about so I am passing those along to a friend as well. So 22 items out the door! #minimize #minsgame #declutter #simplify @simplify.with.saramaria

    Week 3 of May #minsgame is complete! We have decluttered 231 items from our home! Actually it's probably been more, but at a minimum 231. 🎉
🔸🔹🔸
Earlier this week I was still tackling the number a day, including piles of paper junk.  But about halfway through the week I started picking areas of the house and cleaning, organizing and decluttering as I went, making sure I hit at minimum the right number of items.  What a breath of fresh air! 🌬️
🔸🔹🔸
I ended day 21 with a bag full of clothes to donate. I have a huge bin going to Goodwill this weekend, and a big pile for my SIL who is expecting for the first time. 🤰
🔸🔹🔸
All of this comes at the exact right time as we are starting to slowly bring baby items back into the house in preparation for baby #2. 👶
🔸🔹🔸
Planning to take advantage of this long weekend and get a good chunk done. My to do list is pretty long! 🔸🔹🔸 #lessmess #lessstress #minsgame #minimalistchallenge #declutter #declutterchallenge #lessismore #minimalistgame #minimalism #organize #organized #organizing

    Day 21 (yesterday) we collected these items but it was a busy day so I didn’t get around to posting them. On top of these items, I delivered all the minimized items that had been heading to friends and Johan took a huge pile to the dump and cleared a ton of shrubbery from the yard. So overall our space feels like we minimized a ton!  #minsgame #declutter #simplify #minimize @simplify.with.saramaria

letting go of empty containers from @lush and @sukinskincare, two of my three favourite brands. the tiny containers served great for taking small samples of lotions and potions for short getaways. I kept them all with the intention of making my own cosmetics, but for now, I am letting go of that idea, so....#goodbyethings

    My first Cubs game at Wrigley -- I'm old enough to realize my family won't disown me if I go -- was met with a fly ball in our direction, my hand ON THE BALL, and then a Cubs fan wrangling it out of my hand. He said it was because it was his birthday. Mmhm. That's what I say when I want my way, too 🤦‍♀️ He did say he was bleeding though, so I know karma works fast. I half expected to be escorted out of the stadium for assault. That'd have been a memory.

It's fine, really. It'd have been extra clutter to sift through during the unpacking process anyway 😂

All joking aside, serious thank you to Daniel and Natalie for such a fun evening!! It was pretty cool to be part of the seventh inning stretch in that space.

    We had 20 days off school for the holiday break. We got on a really wacky/lazy schedule with late nights and lots of sleeping in. It was fantastic! Tomorrow back to the grind. My New Years goal is to go to bed with a clean kitchen and wake up before the kids so we can have more peaceful mornings!
