Today I’m putting up some different content on the blog, mostly because I’m going to start introducing some non-bookish elements on here! But no worries, I’m still going to be publishing loads of reviews and bookish posts in the future.
A few days ago I stumbled across Muchelle B’s YouTube channel and discovered the 30 Day Simplify Your Life Challenge, which immediately intrigued me. Muchelle B created the challenge in order to encourage and help support people who want to ‘simplify their lives’ by decluttering it. The first two weeks are focused on the physical decluttering of your space, while the last two weeks are focused on the mental decluttering of your life. You can definitely check out her videos about it here to learn more!
Since I graduated from college in December I’ve been feeling a bit lost and confused. My life literally feels like a mess and it doesn’t help that my room reflects the mess I feel inside. During my last semester I was so busy with my 5 classes and 2 jobs that I barely had time to do anything but sleep in my room, which resulted in the state of un-organization it’s in. It also doesn’t help that I literally keep everything!
With the new year and a new chapter in my life starting, I want to start clean. If I had the money I would probably get rid of all my clothes/sheets/ and non-sentimental items but I am a broke, recent college grad that needs to save as much money as possible for grad school. So I’m going to do the next best thing and save only the bare necessities.
Which brings us back to the 30 Day Simplify Your Life Challenge! Here is how it is set up:
I can already tell you that some days(like declutter your wardrobe and paper) are going to take me more than one day since I start working again this week. But I’ll balance it out by lumping together electronics, digital space, and social media all in one day.
Hopefully this will be as life-changing as I’m imagining, but if all else fails at least I’ll have a tidy room. I am planning on documenting my journey on this 30 day challenge on my blog, so I’ll be back soon with an update!
