Lose a Ton: Trial Day 5

Before I was going to publicly ask others to join me in this endeavor to clean out a literal TON of things from our homes, I wanted to make sure it was actually possible.  I didn't want to ask something that would only frustrate or be sure to fail.

I began a week-long trial run about two weeks ago, and throughout this week, I'll share with you my journal entries from that trial.  Click to read about Trial Day 1Trial Day 2 Trial Day 3, and Trial Day 4 here. 

Today was a bit of a challenge because our scale broke!  I will have to get a new one to document the weight our house lost today.

I went through the bathroom vanity cabinet today.  We had a lot of duplicate boxes, expired meds, and lotions and soaps that I will honestly never use.  Why hang onto them?  Now we have room for everything to fit comfortably and even have extra space.  This is great because it means I can buy more stuff!  (Just kidding)

Zac tossed in a sawzall from the garage to make sure we could make our weight - don't worry, he wanted to get rid of it anyway!  I'm happy to have created more space in the bathroom cabinet and am thankful that now I can easily access all the items we use frequently.

13 pounds...according to the new scale

Our group has officially begun but there's still room for more to join!  We have a private Facebook group where we share stories and encourage one another.  Let me know if you want to join the challenge and I'll add you to our group.  It has been a source of much motivation and inspiration!
