Decluttering My Life

A group of us are doing a 30-Day Declutter challenge. I woke up this morning super excited to start. I'm not a hoarder, but I'm definitely lazy when it comes to cleaning/decluttering. I have so much stuff that has built up over the years and I'm finally sick of living like this!

Today's focus was handbags, wallets, etc. so I went through and sorted through some of my old handbags. I've listed them all on depop in case you're interested! I've priced them super cheap because I just want them gone!

I also started tackling my clothes. Today I went through the socks, underwear, bras, bathing suits, and exercise outfits. I haven't been able to close these drawers in years and now my socks are organized and I gained an entire drawer to neatly organize my undies, bras, and workout stuff.

I'm using the declutter plan from 30 Days to Minimalism - Pick Up Limes. I'm also currently reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. The most important point is don't keep it if it doesn't bring you joy. Using that criteria has made the throwing out process so much easier. I may love my stripey rainbow fuzzy socks but they're full of holes now and while they're adorable, they don't bring me joy because they're worn out and annoying to wear. I'll be posting daily updates of what I've accomplished during our challenge so stay tuned for that!

I've also started my diet today. I'm doing Medifast, which I've done before, usually when I need a kickstart to my weight loss. I've been waffling around with trying to lose weight and not being super serious about it, but it's time. If you've ever done Medifast before, the food can be a bit hit or miss, but I've done it enough to know my favorites. Everything I ate today was good so that bodes well. We'll see how I do tomorrow at work. My first goal is June 24 when I'm seeing Harry Styles in concert (I'll be hosting a fan meetup like last time so it's good a goal date as any). That's about 3.5 months away. Today was Day 1 of his new tour and it was fabulous! He debuted a few new songs including my new fave, Medicine! Here's a video! Happy Sunday!
