I started this challenge not by writing, but by reading. I've been going through older posts and am deleting many that are no longer relevant to me or to readers. Actually, I've deleted MOST of the blog! With so few posts remaining, if I actually manage to blog daily for the month, by the end of the month it will end up being a large portion of the blog.
At the same time that I am deleting old posts, I am also "deleting" (getting rid of) many physical things in my house!
Last week, I purchased a copy of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, by Marie Kondo. I have finished reading the book, and have started by going through my clothes and linens. I have donated 11 shopping bags worth of stuff, and had another shopping bag worth of paper recycling, and another of garbage. I've realized that I own a lot more clothing than I had thought that I did.
After getting rid of many things, I have now merged two dresser drawers worth of things into one. I have moved my pants from the top of my closet into the now empty drawer. My linen closet looks organized and it doesn't explode with things trying to escape when it is opened.
