For real. Today’s post is interactive. You’re going to read for a few seconds, put down the phone (or step away from the computer), do something AWESOME, then come back. Repeat.

I have a little game for us to play. I thought of it 10 seconds ago, and I’m going to make it up as I go along. It’s called Purge As Fast As You Can! (if you don’t have time to play it today, no worries. save it for a day you do.)

Let the Games Begin!

Task #1: Go through your bedroom and find 5 things you can purge. Ready, Set, Go! (no, really–go! don’t read another word until you’ve purged 5 things. I’m going to do it too!)

Welcome back! So, what did you purge? I purged a basket I hate, 2 books, a pair of jeans, a set of 3lb weights, and I put the rest of Gabe’s “Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin” t-shirts in a bag to sell at The Never-Say-Never Yard Sale. Over-achieve much?

Task #2: Go through your kitchen and find 5 things you can purge. Ready, Set, Go! (no, really–go!)

So, what did you purge this time? I got rid of 5 plastic cups and 3 bowls. Over-achiever again! (or, rather, former hoarder of plasticware)

Task #3: Go through your bathroom/linen closet and find 5 things you can purge. Ready, Set, Go!

(You’re not cheating, are you? Are you reading this post all the way through without getting up off the couch??) What did you purge? I purged 5 old toothbrushes that I was saving to scrub something someday. I’ll just wait until our now-toothbrushes are ready to be discarded before I scrub anything.

Task #4: Go through your living room and find 5 things you can purge. Ready, Set, Go!

What’d you find? I got 2 books, 2 DVDs, and some stamps/stamp pads that The Dancing Elephant doesn’t use.

Task #5: Last one! Pick one remaining room in your home and find 5 things you can purge. Ready, Set, Go!

A game, a box of tea bags, 4 plastic bowls, and an almost-used-up candle.

Woohoo!! We did it! Do a little dance, you de-cluttering fool! xoxoxo

See you tomorrow!
