Day 3095 – Minimalism Series – Challenges To Help You Minimize Your Life In January

To finish out the series, here are some challenges to you to minimize your life this January!

Go through one drawer each day until you go through all the drawers in the house. Throw things out, recycle, shred, whatever you need to do to get it organized.

Turn all your hangers around and set a reminder to see what’s still backwards in a few months.

Get rid of dishes and cups you really don’t use. 12 place settings, there’s only two of you, and you NEVER have company? Why keep them?

Go through your movies – get rid of the ones you have watched before but haven’t watched in the last 2 years.

Go through your books – get rid of the ones you’ve read and won’t read again. Find a little free library or two and leave them there.

Create a custom friends list on Facebook. Bookmark that for when you go to Facebook.

Unsubscribe from 5 email lists each day. Seriously, are you EVER going to read those emails? Cut them loose.

Sit and enjoy your current situation. Life is about the journey, not the destination, so enjoy where you are today!

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
