Secrets of Success

365 Less Things



Each day for the year I eliminate one item of from my house. I have 2 boxes, one upstairs and one downstairs. When I come across something I no longer use or need, it goes into the box and the box is donated when full. I keep a running list of donations so I have a sense of accomplshment.

  • This is an excellent way to purge stuff from a house and be conscious of it daily. It is going on my daily goals list. - by PAHEALY
  • I, too, have been working on clearing my home of excess stuff... but I get serious feelings of anxiety about it (gosh, I hope I'm not a hoarder). But your idea of one item per day seems totally doable. Thank you for this very helpful tip. - by VERIVEGI
  • This is a great idea. When I was younger, we moved around a lot so there was always mass weeding out of "stuff". I haven't moved in 20 years and just KNOW I have things in my closet that are that old (or older)and it is a bit overwhelming. I can do one thing a day. - by MATHISDJAX
