The Minimalist Game // DAY 12.

Heeello, everyone!

Here we are, day 12! Honestly, every time I do an update on this challenge is a day I surprise myself because it's been really hard to downsize. As you can see from the title, today I'm letting go of some paper clips. No one needs the amount of office supplies I currently have, so it was about time I declutter. Some may consider counting paper clips as individual items cheating... If you're one of those people, try doing this challenge yourself before judging me. 

I started this game by doing a big all-at-once declutter around my house. I went through a lot of my closets and drawers and I thought I had enough items to get me through at least the first ten days.. I was clearly wrong and only had about twenty items, which was disappointing. Now, I'm doing things day by day. Actually, everyday I share an update here is the day I declutter my house. I've made a point of not bringing anything in, so for the duration of this game I won't be shopping or adding anything to my already cluttered spaces. 
First thing we have today is this little "stuffed thingy". I got it at a wedding, they were giving this out to all the single ladies when we were lining up to get the bouquet - this is supposed to be Saint Anthony of Lisbon, which in Brazilian culture is supposed to help you find a husband (and I think he also blesses marriages, I don't know..) I still haven't found my husband, so I don't know how accurate this information is. Second of all, we have this super fashionable pink cup. I have no idea how this ended up in my kitchen but I'm decluttering it now. And lastly, we have an assortment of paper clips. I counted and there are in fact 10 of them, don't need to worry. 

That's all for today, guys! If you're also decluttering or doing this game with me, let me know on the comments how you're doing. I'm really struggling, but I'm pushing through. I'm gonna try my best to finish it this month or in the beginning of February because I think dragging it out is only making it worst. I just haven't had time to blog lately because of my new job and other things I got going on. 

How is your decluttering doing?
Do you have any tips?

Let's chat!

Thanks so much for reading and come back soon!
