Thirty-one things

Remember how I said I wanted to get rid of more things? Well I'm gonna! I've decided to do a controlled decluttering during the month of October. I will get rid of one thing a day. At the end of the month, my condo will be 31 things lighter.

I've gotten rid of many, many, things over the past few months. So I think that it might be a little tougher for me to come up with 31 things. But I will!

However, I want to buy a few new (old) things for the condo. Like a dining room table (bought), dining room chairs, a coffee table, a used end table (maybe), a used cabinet for the dining room (maybe), a rug for the living room and one for the dining room (maybe), a comfortable chair for extra seating in the living room.

So to balance things out, I will get rid of something for everything I buy. Obviously, it most likely won't be equivalent. For instance, my new couch was just delivered on Saturday. I got rid of a plastic pitcher to compensate. It's obviously not of the same size. But it's still one for one.

The part that I find the most difficult to get under control is the little items that would probably end up in a junk drawer, if I had one. There are a few random items here and there that I haven't quite figured out what to do with. I suppose I should just put everything into a box and seal it, and if I don't open the box up within a few months to a year, then just throw out the box without opening it. If I don't remember I had it, I probably won't miss it. 

So why don't you join me? October's not over yet. Catch up! Let's all get rid of 31 things this October!
