Quite honestly, I hadn't given a lot of thought to doing this again this year. But someone else who lives here was psyched to do it. And now the fire has been lit under me.
The October Purge was inspired by an essay about Joshua Fields Millburn, who got rid of one possession a day for a month. We're doing a variation this year, because two of us are getting rid of one item a day. And, for novelty, by which I mean, fun, we're making a heap of this stuff to get a nice visual of what two items a day for thirty days looks like.
Here is the difference between Day One and Day Five.

|Purge 2015 Day Five|
I love this idea. I'm going to give it a try, just focusing on my office and especially my file cabinets. I've been needing to purge them for a while.
It made a difference in a few spots in the house last year. And I think it created a mindset that made me think a few times before bringing new things into the house.
