Day 2 (30 day minimalist challenge)

2. Eliminate the need for a “junk drawer” by tossing the junk.

I failed at this one.

My (still existing) junk drawer:


In my defense, most of this stuff (trash stickers, batteries, scissors, tape, lighters) I use regularly. The sewing kit is a stretch, but I do sew the rare button back on every couple of years or so.

I did get rid of some junk, including keys that I no longer recognize and an extra pair of scissors and tape measure. I had originally added an expired thing of pepper spray to the trash pile, but then realized I probably shouldn’t just toss that in the trash, so it’s back in the drawer. I think it’s the only piece of true junk in there though, so I’m okay with it.


I added more books to the donation box.


That counts, right?
