Our house minimizing project is going well. We haven’t reached an amazing goal of owning 100 items each (maybe in a month or two), but we have drastically cut down our possessions. We are planning on moving to a cheaper apartment very soon (and had a time limit of one month), so to stick to our schedule we declared this past Sunday Donation Day.
We really wanted to donate our stuff, not just haul it away to the landfill. So we researched and found out about Goodwill’s discount pick up service. Goodwill made a deal with a local hauling company called College Hunks Hauling Junk. At a discount price, they came by that sunny afternoon and drove away with a truck full of our lifelong possessions.
So what did we get rid of?
Old computers/camera equipment
More clothes (if you can believe that)
Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii (sold on craigslist)
Vintage Red Wagon
And lots of other stuff we already forgot about.
Is that all?
Nope, we haven’t completely told our entire apartment-minimizing tale yet, so expect a few more posts on that subject. Just as soon as we are moved into our new place we will declutter even more. We promise.
