MinsGame Fall 2020: Day 20

For the Minimizing Game Day 20, I went back into my closet again, I think for the third time this month. I’m not going to itemize everything, but it includes two jackets I have nostalgic feelings about, but haven’t worm in about five years, one jacket I really hate, two pairs of shorts that fit but it’s been at least five years since I’ve worn them, and a lot of tanks that have holes. I was three items short, so I tossed in some items from my son’s dresser that are too small.

Sunflower blooming in July.

For the Minimizing Game Day 19, I cleaned out my garden shed. I didn’t wait to take photos of everything, so I’ll just list them. Thirteen were pots from the plants I’ve bought this year. I thought I might want to save them for seed starting, but they’re not ideal for that and most of them were too busted up to use anyway.

1.-13. Plastic flower pots.
14. Yellow jacket trap that did not trap any yellow jackets the entire summer.
15. Curtain rod.
16. Single gardening glove that I’ve looked for the other all summer and now I give up.
17. Broken trowel.
18. Broken beach toy.
19. Broken beach shovel.

MinsGame Fall 2020: Day 18

For the Minimizing Game Day 18, I got rid of more of my clothing. Even though I already went through my closet only about a week ago, I wanted to do it again. Most of this is old underwear and bras, but I did have more than one revelation. While I love flowers and flower images on some home items, I hate flower prints on myself. I also gave up one blouse I liked, but it got a stain a few years ago, and I haven’t been able to get it out, so clearly I won’t be wearing it again.

For the Minimizing Game Day 17, we have a toys of way more than 17 pieces known as Magic Trax, including all the cars, ramps, and whatnot. The last time the kids played with it was Xmas 2019, and even that was not in the slightest bit enthusiastically. When I asked if they wanted it, they wouldn’t even look in the bag. Gave to a local parent with younger kids.

For the Minimizing Game Day 13, I got rid of 12 rubber ducks and the plastic box I kept them in. My kids are almost 10 and 6, and they both take showers. Also, when I picked these up to determine whether I should get rid of them, I realized they hadn’t had the water squirted out of them the last time they were used, which was probably about 8 months ago. I was grossed out and threw them out right away.
