The 3 Item Challenge – Introduction

Lately, I have been troubled by the quantity of items I own. My closet is overflowing with clothes I don’t wear. My bedside table drawer is filled with junk that is useless. My office drawers are filled with things I “might use” one day, but know I never will.

I have been thinking a lot about how to slim down and simplify. I like the idea of minimalism and want to lean more in that direction. So, I have come up with what I’m calling “The 3 Item Challenge.”

The 3 Item Challenge Rules:

  1. Get rid of (or donate) at least 3 items per day
  2. Do it for a minimum of 30 days

I think I will have to do this for 60 – 90 days to get the level of minimalism that I want, but I’m starting with a commitment to 30 days right now, then I will reassess from there. I started yesterday, so I will blog about my progress on day 10, 20 and 30.
