|A Lovely Walking View|
I began The Mins Game a few weeks ago now and got to about day fifteen, worrying I wouldn't be able to finish out the month. You know, 16 things on day 16, 17 things on day 17 all the way up to thirty one. Well I did do it, although I had to go a little further afield than my home...I had to take on my office at work. My office is the tidiest and zen-set of everyone's at work, quite empty in fact, but I still managed to build up my pile of get-rids with the assistance of the office. In the end I lost count of how much on each day I got rid of, but I do know I got rid of tons more than required to succeed in The Mins Game.
Here's what I got rid of. And me....a minimalist who owns little....
A water jug, 6 glasses, a bag, ceramic squirrel, 2 more bags, 3 sponges, a tray, 2x bras, 3 x knives, a whisk, 5 sponges, a nail file, a frame, pastry brush, a bag, 3 x sculptures, a shirt, 2 x forks, 8 x solar lights, cardigan, earrings, lamp, bag, lamp, glass bowl, body cream, 2 x cables, weighing scales, antiseptic, necklace, 5 cups, 6 cords, 4 x bags, chessboard, 25 game pieces, hot water bottle, incense, 7 x game bits, plastic container, 3 x books, cardigan, 2 x blankets, 3 x tchotchkes, bag, 8 x books, 8 x pictures, 2 x badges, fastener, booklet, perfume, lids, 2 x earrings, 2 x yoga mats, 24 bits of jewellery, 11x bits of jewellery, tin opener, ice pack, candle x 2, 11 x clothes, 26 cards, 27 cards, 15 cards, 7 x DVDs, scarf, tshirt, jacket, jeans, 2 x bottles of wine, 5 x DVDs, bowl, ball, tights, bra, 2 x tshirts, Lamp, wind chimes, handle, gemstone elephant, nighty, shorts x 3, shorts, 2 x gemstone angels, 2 x leggings, 2 x books, 3 x tshirts, 2 x servers, a masher, Buddha picture, 2 x lamps, yoga brick, fish net, 10 x perfumes, measuring jug, bird seed, 3 x pairs of shoes, 4 x jumpers, 3 x body creams, 3 x coat, leggings, tshirt, scarf, backpack, bra, earphones, coat, jumper, 2 x tshirts, singlet, lip balm, magnet, top, g-string , lanyard, suitcase, jeans, scarf, plastic container, hand cream, heart ornament, 8 x cards, 3 x potato peelers, 30 x rings, plastic container, red cardigan, yoga strap, 2 x tshirts, shirt, 4 x mugs, tshirt, trousers, shirt.....

My house is appearing on another writer's blog in a week or two, so you will see how little I have in the photos. My cupboards aren't hiding a plethora of stuff, many are empty...so where is all this crap coming from...and I'm not even finished?!?
What I am feeling is good though!
