I think borrowing is one of the best concepts ever. I love getting books from the library, borrowing movies from friends, and most recently – borrowing an awesome cookbook from our cousins:
It’s in English and Chinese (I don’t speak any Chinese at all, but I would love to learn. I have the Rosetta Stone for it).
Speaking of new things, it was time to retire these Vera Bradley gems (they served me well). You can’t see it in the picture, but one of the straps is being held on with a safety pin. The straps are so worn that I don’t think I can even try to sell this. Anyone want a free used Vera bag? If you live around here (Sunnyvale, CA) you can pick it up. The wallet is in better condition, but it needs to retire too.
I replaced them with some new ones!
I buy Vera Bradley New With Tags (NWT) on Ebay for much cheaper than in the store.
Onto the real point of this post. MizFit is having a de-clutter challenge, and I’m going to join. The gist of it is to give away 30 things in 30 days. So one thing every day for the month of June. I know where my local Goodwill is, so all I have to do is start picking items.
I’m going to be adding my own second part to the challenge though. I have SO MUCH food in my kitchen and pantry. There is no reason for me to have all of the random items that I have. I’m going to try to use 30 pantry items in 30 days to declutter my kitchen. Are you with me? (Some pantry items might stretch out over a few days – I’m obviously not going to eat a whole package of pasta in one day. The goal is to use something from the pantry every day.)
I’ll also be continuing my Whole Life Challenge through this Friday (and probably beyond), so June will be a challenging month. Using up pantry items will probably help me stay on track with the *new meals* part of the Whole Life Challenge.
What will you challenge yourself to do in June?
