Although I've always had the natural inclination, minimalism is something I've only started to put into practice recently. As a result, my home is full of past purchases and gifts that I no longer want around. Donating unwanted items can seem like a daunting task, but as my husband says, "Take one bite at a time."
So on occasion we've started playing The Donation Game. Usually whenever I find myself with an empty box, we'll set it in the living room and take turns adding an item to it, until it's full. Sometimes we get so competitive with our little game, the box overflows with donation items.
The best part is, I don't miss a thing. In fact, I can hardly remember what I put in the box.
