August Declutter Challenge – Day 21 (15 Minute Dash & Grab)

. at . 6 comments

I’m going on a declutter hunt. I’m not afraid. Got my trusty friends.

I set the timer for 15 minutes and went likity split through 3 rooms looking for the “clutter.” This is what I came up with . .

 From the bathroom I grabbed a . . .

Brown eyeliner pencil – I’ve never been able to line my eyes without looking like a raccoon or accident victim.

Hair clip  – Truthfully when I put this in my hair, it just looks plain dumb. You know how some women can look gorgeous in that tossled look or wear anything look? I can’t.

Half-used bottle of hand sanitizer – Way past the expiration date.


From my bedroom closet I grabbed  . . .  5 articles of clothing: 2 camisoles, 1 black long-sleeved shirt, an ivory shell, and a multi-colored jacket. They are either too short, too small, too shear, or too bright. None make me look or feel gorgeous.

From my study I grabbed . . .

Books and resources from a past church-wide study on The Peacemaker by Ken Sande. These should “live” at church and not my home bookshelf.

Promotional material (5 leaflets and 1 DVD) from 2005-2006. They were useful, but not now.


So, what have my friends decluttered today?

    Love the idea of a 15 minute decluttering spree.


  • Susan, well done. I love how you said None make me look or feel gorgeous.

    Hey, I need to look through my hair stuff too. I don’t wear that in my hair normally but I use 3 of those when I’m drying my hair 🙂

    Forgetfulone – Your Thursday 13 meme is cute. I’ll have to google “Susan needs” and see what pops up. Maybe I’ll discover something. One of these days I want to join in with the Sunday Scrappin folks. It looks fun. (The one of these dyas is like next August cuz I;ll be done with seminary)

    Amanda – I’m in the need for another 15 minute timer declutter on my inbox. I really want to get it down to zero!

    Debateur – Thanks for visiting my site. I’m impressed with the topics you cover. Quite the brain stretch. Thanks, I needed that.

    Diane – you’ve been doing a great job decluttering as well. I especially like your cleaning basket. I hope your eye is much better today.

    Marcia – You are so good at commenting and encouraging. Thanks. I don’t need clips for my hair when drying because I hardly ever blow dry my hair, even when it’s long. Lazy or somehing I am.
