Day 20: 1x train card, 1x keychain, 1x cleaning cloth, 3x pairs of socks

That was it! I didn’t make it to the full 30 days because I had no more items that I could possibly throw away. So the total result was 100 items. I donated all of the clothes and I threw out the rest as there was nothing worth selling. I feel a lot lighter after this exercise and it was great keeping it to 5 items a day because I would re look at the things I had decided not to throw out during the previous day. The biggest lesson that I learned from doing this exercise was seeing the amount of clothing I had been keeping but haven’t worn in years. So I created a new rule for myself when it comes to clothing. If I want to buy a new shirt or pants I need to donate a pair that I have. So I don’t build up my closet again with items that I don’t need.

I would hope that everyone tries this challenge as I would hope it would give you the same I got of feeling lighter.
