And after learning about the KonMari method and reading her book I convinced some friends to join me in what will be the DECLUTTER EVENT!!!!
In the Marie Kondo book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organising, she says that when you decide to declutter you need to make it an event!
You need to treat that day like a special day and even dress appropriately! To say the truth I didn't do that but...
I got the idea to sell all our stuff we don't need anymore in a flea market on the April 30th!
So we have a date, a goal to achieve and something to look forward to with our friends!!
I even have everything packed and ready to go there and sell! Everything fits in a tidy red suitcase!
This leaves 20 days for the event to come, and I'm already finished!
It can't be! I look around and I see stuff, stuff that I don't know whether I need it or care about it but I didn't select them!
Because this is going to be very important and a great opportunity for me to improve my life I don't want to miss it because I have tunnel vision and can't see what is in front of me!
To stop this feeling that I'm missing something, I decided to do a 20 Day Minimalist Challenge!
What is a 20 Day Minimalist Challenge?
As far as I understand every day you need to pick an amount of stuff equal to that days ordinal number.
- 1st Day -> 1 Thing
- 2nd Day -> 2 Things
- 20th Day -> 20 Things
So in the end of this 20 Day Challenge you must have 210 things to give away!
At first 210 things appear to be a lot! But if I find more things in a day that I don't need, it counts for the goal of the next day.
Here I go in this Decluttering Journey!
Wish me luck!
