100 Things Challenge

A few months ago, Jessa wrote a blog post about a 100 Things Challenge and I was intrigued. A little while later, Lisa wrote a similar post about a minimalist challenge (she wrote about it again when she finished the challenge).

I really liked the idea of getting rid of 100 (or any specific number of) things because I was starting to feel like we just had too much stuff. So when I got rid of a lot of clothes and accessories when creating my capsule wardrobe, I thought now would be a great time to try the challenge!

So, I put it on my blogging editorial calendar for today and basically forgot about it until I posted about my capsule wardrobe on Tuesday. So for the past two days I've been cleaning out drawers and cabinets like crazy and I got all the way to 150 items! I'm pretty proud of myself!

Here's my list! 

(I condensed some of the items because I'm sure you don't want to read 150 individual list items of each specific expired medication in our medicine cabinet)


  • 1 - 24. clothing items
This duffel is full of clothing and accessories that I'm taking to Goodwill today. The bag itself counts as an accessory (below).
