500 Things Challenge: January 1st to 17th

In my journey to a more minimalistic lifestyle, I am embarking on a 500 Things Challenge.  This challenge may eventually become the 1,000 Things Challenge – depending on my de-cluttering itch.  Basically, this year, I will try to get rid of 500 items from my home.  I gift these items to friends, return them to their rightful owners, donate them to charity or trash.  I am keeping a list to be accountable and I will keep adding to this list throughout the year.

  1. Car?!?! thats a big one! I like this goal, it’s really attainable and trackable. Good job!

  2. Great job!! Wow! My goals are going slowly… lol! I need to bump up my 100 items list too…

  3. Why 500 items? 🙂 Just curious…

    I want to do this too. But I already sorted out three huge bags of clothes for donation and am too lazy to count them individually. Maybe I’ll have a “10 piles” challenge!

  5. I love how you threw your car there, almost as though it was an afterthought and not a huge change!
