21 Day Challenge

Canada
December 19, 2016 1:38pm CST
Has anybody ever heard of the 21 Day Declutter game? You challenge a friend and then .... Day 1 - throw away one thing you don't use Day 2 - throw away two things Day 3 - throw away three things Day 4 - throw away four things all the way up to day 21. The first person that runs out of things they want to throw out loses. I might challenge myself to this. Have you ever done this?

I throw out things occasionally without needing a challenge.

@Sasquatchy A couple of battered pillows. We just bought some new ones after years.

I do that every time I move. Since I'm a renter, that's every year or two. I really don't have much around here that is used. My DIL, on the other hand, has the storage shed full and her room is wall to wall stuff. I remember when I was young having a lot of stuff made me feel secure and now I'm the complete opposite.

I have a friend that does that too. He throws out or gets rid of a lot of his stuff. Always donating. I'd think it would be a hard thing to do.

@Sasquatchy The only thing hard about it is finding out months later that I need something I'd been holding onto "just in case"!!

@dragon54u I understand that. I hold on to everything. My wife said I'd be a hoarder if I had my way.

I have been trying to declutter for years. I have got rid of a lot, but there still is a lot. I did get rid of one small old old book today.

It's hard to get rid of stuff! I'm trying to do the challenge but only with old stuff I know I won't miss

I never do this, because I don't have so many things I should throw away.

I think that might be the point of it. To only keep the things that you shouldn't throw away. That you need, or brings you joy.

I would lose because I just threw a lot of things that I don't use while moving to a new house.

That is a worthwhile challenge. I have never engaged in this challenge, but I do make it a point to throw out or donate 3 things every day, no matter how small they happen to be.
