If you are looking to scale down on your number of possessions, these daily tasks should be a great help to you. Get started now:
- Set your timer for 30 minutes. Sort through a section of your house deciding what to keep and what to part with. Place unwanted items in the appropriate box – donate, yard sale, eBay, or recycle. Trash goes in the trash can.
- Photograph any non-consumable items that you intend to keep and file the snapshots in a folder on your computer. Because it takes a bit of time to photograph and file an item, you might choose to keep less items. Keeping an item means more work in your daily life as well. Ridding of an item means less to clean and less to take care of.
- Today is the day to recycle. Do you have enough metal to fill your vehicle that would warrant a trip to the recycling yard? If not, you are done for the day. If you have enough, go recycle your metal and come home with a handful of money. Do you have a vehicle to scrap? I just had mine hauled away last week and already got my check in the mail! Before it was hauled away, I jumped on the roof so I could cross that off my bucket list (okay, it really wasn’t on my bucket list, but I just had to do it – they’re going to recycle the car anyway). And I actually didn’t dent the roof. I don’t know why, but I couldn’t purposely hurt my baby. I drove her for too long. If you read yesterday’s post, I also removed useful parts from the vehicle that people might be able to use for replacements. I listed them on eBay. I don’t know about you, but I have not missed a day of scaling down and I’m really liking the feeling of having less and less stuff. Keep it up!
