28 Days Purging Series: Day 21

Welcome to day twenty one of this purging series. Today we are going to be doing Clothes.

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.

Going through our clothing can be very overwhelming, this is why this task is not a pull every piece of clothing out. This is more going through your items, if you pack your seasonal clothes then just like in Day 20, leave those for you to do until you pull them out. (Tip: if you go through your items seasonally it will be much easier for you to up keep with the amount of clothing you hold onto).
Let’s set that timer and go. Let’s start with the closet, quickly go through the pieces, remove anything you have not worn in the past year and put aside. Once done, go through those pieces you pulled out and be truly honest with yourself, would you still wear it, does it fit, etc.. If you answered that you would still wear it when returning the piece put it in the front and see if you reach for it. (or you can hang it with the hanger in opposite to the others, then you will be able to see if you have reach for it or not in your next purge) In a few months, check back with those items in the front and if you didn’t wear it you know you won’t be. Next move into your drawers and do the same. Use the same tips for decision making. Always think of if you have even worn the item once, that will also help with the process of letting go.

For all your items that you are letting go of, if in good condition please look into donating these items to a great place.

28 Days Purging Series: Day 14

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Welcome to day fourteen of this purging series. Today we are going to be doing Jewelry.

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.

Over time we can accumulate a lot of costume jewelry. Trends come and go quickly. For this task, we are going to go through all costume jewelry, we are looking for pieces we longer wear. Pieces that were on trend that aren’t anymore and you no longer want should go first, it will make the decision process easier. Then go through your other pieces, be honest with yourself if you will ever wear it again. All items found can be donated or you can put it up for sale. Also, some types of jewelry tarnish over time and so if they can’t be bought back to life then they should make to trash pile. Jewelry could be harder to deicide on what to keep and not, (not talking about real gold or silver pieces) those what if’s can pop up often making it hard to make a decision. If they aren’t real gold or silver they will tarnish anyways and by the time you need or if you go back to them they might not be in good condition. Just remember if you aren’t using them or haven’t in the last year mostly likely you won’t miss them.

I use to have a hard time letting go of costume jewelry, I learned from my last big purge on jewelry that the items I kept I never looked for or bothered to wear. I had a crazy amount, it was easier when doing these easy timed purges that I continued to realized I really didn’t need or want them. So if you held onto more then you wanted, don’t worry when you redo this task another time you will realize it and you will purge more.

Comment below and let me know if you took part in today’s task. Did you find it hard to deicide? Are you finding these timed purges more successful?
