50 Things Challenge: An update.

I'll keep this post short (for once) and minimalistic ;)

Progress that I have made with the [give away] 50 Things Challenge so far:

1. Allocated 1 large box for my donations, which currently resides in my bedroom.
2. Chosen approoooximately 16 things to donate so far (well on my way!)
3. Already went to Value Village (popular Canadian second-hand store) and bought 4 (or 5?) work shirts and 3 GORGEOUS knit sweaters for work, and also a belt, for $65!!! *This* is why I love buying second-hand! Everything I bought was in perfect shape and quality, just as I would have found them in the store at probably 5x the price! Honestly, the sweaters I got are so beautiful, I bet each one of them would cost $50 or more new.

I had planned to wait until I had all my donations ready to buy any new things, but I really needed some shirts and sweaters for work, so it just couldn't wait.

Overall, though, I'm happy with the progress I've made so far with this challenge! If little else, I have certainly been thinking in a more minimalistic way in terms of my consumption, both with food and other purchases, and I'm feeling really good about it! :D Seriously, it's amazing how much you realize you *don't need* when you're conscious of it at all times!

So there's my update. I almost took some pictures of the clothes I bought, but I don't think I'm quite at the fashion show blogging stage yet, and honestly, they were just work clothes. Boring! ;p

Peace! <3

[more] simply [than i was last week] yours,
