A few months ago, I played the Minimalism Game, created by The Minimalists (2 guys who have helped over a very large number of people increase meaning in their lives by reducing the amount of shit they own. Genius, right?).
The 30 Day Minimalism Game is super simple. You get rid of excess stuff for 30 days. On the first day, get rid of 1 thing. Day 2, 2 things. 3 items on day 3. And so on. Donate, sell, or trash. Whatever you do, each material possession must be out of your house (and your life) by midnight each day.
It was an illuminating experience and it helped me to get rid of so much crap, which felt amazing. So, if you want to declutter your home in some quick and easy ways, here is a list to help you get started!
