Give Away Ten A Day - Day Eighteen

I'm really finding strength in myself by letting go of all this stuff. It's also occurring to me how much stuff we bring into our homes on a daily basis. We typically don't take out nearly as much. Think about it for just a moment, each day you bring something home; groceries, art work from your kids school, drug store purchases, mail, magazines, and so many other things. Once I get the clutter out, we will implement a "bring one home, take one out" policy. A few people do this with clothes, we're going to do it with everything! I'm really enjoying this and I'm excited about how our home will be when we're finished.

Today I tackled the main cabinet and a narrow shelf-space in my bathroom behind the door. Because the one space is behind the door, it's out of sight-out of mind. Today it is organized, orderly, and functional! Way more than ten items went, but I'll list the top ten. You can also see pics below.
  1. 1/2 large bottle of low quality conditioner
  2. Dusting mitt
  3. Body washing puff
  4. Back washing puff-long
  5. Cosmetics bag
  6. Blue mascara
  7. Lip balm
  8. Back-up hair dryer I've never used
  9. Hot rollers
  10. And the hardest to part with, The Toilet Monster, practical joke.

WAY more than 180, easily double that number.
