The Why…

Today I found myself revisiting some areas I thought I had already cleared out of excess possessions. Ha! Oh past Jade, the things I have to teach you!

Now that I am up to throwing away nearly 20-plus items a day, I am practically forced to go back and take a second look at old areas. It goes to show that there are always ways to cut back, even when you think you have already cut to what you think are “the essentials”.

I suppose this Challenge will be tougher for me because I only have a bedroom, a study and a bathroom to clean out but so far, that hasn’t been the case. Every day I’ve just got stuck into my minimising routine and found objects to discard. It’s been pretty simple.

Of course, now that I have said it I have most definitely jinxed it and tomorrow I’ll be posting about how naive I was and how I cursed myself by saying those poetic words “pretty simple”.

Well, that’s tomorrow. Today, I’m feeling pretty epic. I’ll leave my prophesied damnation for the future!
