28 Days Purging Series: Day 26

Welcome to day twenty six of this purging series. Today we are going to be doing Books/Magazines.

Our goal is to spend 20 minutes or less on this task. Throughout this series there may be tasks that only take 5-10 mins and that is great and gives so much motivation to keep on with the tasks in the days ahead. 

Also, during these daily tasks for our purging series if there is a day where it does not apply to you or that place does not need it you can select another area to do with the same idea of 20 minutes or less.

This task should not take long. Choose only the books that belong to you not your kids or other family members, unless you don’t have any and want to choose to do theirs for this task.
Get two bins ready, one for donate (either to donate to a place or to hand over to someone you know will enjoy it ), one for recycling (magazines). Start from the top pile and work your way through. Keep the ones you want to re-read (only if you truly are going to) or you use for reference. Books that you haven’t had a chance and might seem not interesting to you anymore let those go. Everything you have read that you haven’t selected to re-read is less likely you will ever pick up again. Keeping them will only make your piles grow larger over time making future purging harder (longer) to go through.

Was this an easy one for you? This took me less then 5 minutes, I honestly don’t hold onto books and magazines, the magazines I have kept are ones that I use as table or spot decor. All books I have kept are only the ones to read and the ones I use for references. With this being said I didn’t include my kids books, I only went through their dictionary, thesaurus, reference books (researching), etc… which are kept with my books.

A question I would love to know is would you re-do this purging series again at a later date to up keep with your home?

Book Review: Girl, wash your face

Have you read “Girl, wash your face” by Rachel Hollis? If you haven’t I am here to tell you go read it, it is so good and gives you that push you need to get up and work hard for that dream.

“Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to be” Rachael Hollis

Rachel Hollis is a bestselling author, TV personality, in-demand speaker, and founder and CEO of Chic Media, the foremost authority on premium digital content for women. Named one of Inc. Magazine’s “Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30,” 

Every dream doesn’t come easy, hard work and fails is how it is to achieve that dream, only you can do it. With every fail and every goal achieved it is you to push for that. Forget about what people think/say, you must overcome that and keep pushing, working for that dream to come true. Believe in yourself. No matter how big that dream or goal is, you can do it with time and working hard. Everyone goes through some fail and it’s hard and it can be a real downer, take a day if needed to feel all those feelings, but then re-group yourself and get back on that dream &/or goal.

In Girl, wash your face Rachael tells it all. The good and the bad. She has so much knowledge and inspiration. This book is so good and what makes it really good is the fact that she shares the good and bad (her real experiences), but also gives you real things that make you think and some that really make you dig deep into for your own personal life. She gives so much inspiration. Dreams take hard work to achieve and sometimes some fails. Rachel shares it all in this book. This book has inspired me to keep pushing for your dream. If you need a good book to wake you up and help you get the right mind set, this is a good one.

I bought mine at Indigo but it is also available on Amazon. I also purchased Girl, Stop Apologizing.
