Throw Out 50 Things

After seeing this post on Jess Lively's blog, I grabbed Throw Out Fifty Things from the library. I'm only a few pages in, but I had already started a pile of items to consign so I decided to jump into collecting 50 items to toss over this past weekend! 

The "throw out" phrasing is a bit misleading. I'm interpreting "throw out" as removing from my home, not putting in the trash. In my 50 items I included magazines to recycle and a few things I tossed, but most of the items I collected went to Stuff (a consignment shop) or will be donated.

Here's a pic of most of the items in my most recent purge:

I'd say my first attempt at throwing out fifty things went well and wasn't too challenging since I already had a "get rid of" pile started. I've put a reminder in my calendar to try the challenge again at the end of November, but I've already thought of additional items to exfoliate my home of since completing this yesterday. I'm exciting to remove some clutter and hopefully become more conscious in the purchases I make! I'll keep you updated in the progress. And maybe I'll finish reading the book...

Have you participated in anytime of "purge" like this before? What was your experience like?
