I saw a 100 Things Challenge on Janet's blog, The Gardener's Cottage.
Janet is a classy, chic, stylish lady. She lives in a tiny cottage that is SO
beautifully, minimally decorated. She's into vegan eating, simplifying, and
and having quality over quantity. She's very inspiring!

The challenge was to walk around your house and gather stuff you
don't need. It can be trash or things to donate. I knew this
wouldn't be any trouble for me! I could do it every day for days
I bet! Well, I got two large gift bags (one for donations and one for trash)
and decided to see what I could do in just 15 minutes.
I counted as I went, throwing in unused candles, some Christmas
ornaments, gift bags, plastic containers I don't use, and
a few items of clothing. And then trash....my 2013 calendar,
receipts, expired cold medicine, a pen that was out of ink, etc.
In 15 minutes, I had gathered 62 things to remove from my house!
I didn't even go through closets or dressers!
What a fun thing to do and it didn't take a lot of time.
I think I could do it weekly for quite a while!
