30 Day Declutter Challenge

It’s been almost 10 months since I had made a post that has not been related to my business journey and I do apologize for that. I have been very busy at work and when I’m not at work I am focused on launching my business which you can follow starting here. As I have been making my way towards fully paying off my student loans I can feel a weight being lifted my of me. Let me tell you it’s a great feeling to have and I highly encourage everyone to work towards it. One of the things I have been thinking about after reaching financial independence is I want to live and run my business out of other countries and move every couple of months to really experience the world. So I looked around my apartment and I thought most of these “things” that I own I wouldn’t take with me. Clothing that I have had in my closet for years that I have never worn but keep because maybe one day i’ll wear it or items in an old suitcase that I haven’t used in the past 5 years. Just a lot of clutter as you may call it.

There is a saying which is “What You Own, Owns You” which most minimalist preach. I am not going to go into what minimalism is or stating that I would become one. As stupid as it sounds I came up with a challenge for myself and that is to throw away/donate/recycle 5 items in my apartment a day for a total of 30 days. So by the end of this challenge I would of thrown away/donated/recycled 150 items. Items that I either haven’t worn in years, items taking up space that have no use and just things I no longer need or can sell. I am on day 2 for this mini challenge I have made for myself and documenting all the items I have thrown out/donated so far. What I am working towards is preparing for the next stage of my life which will be to run my business and if I want to move to another country I would like to only move with a few suitcases.

At the end of the 30 days I will post my list of items and hopefully it will inspire you to do that same. Your closest is a great place to start. Just ask yourself these three simple questions:

  1. Could I make money if I sold this item?
  2. When was the last time I wore this item?
  3. What is one reason that would make it reasonable to get rid of this item?

Good luck everyone and I hope you take up the challenge too!
