You may remember that about this time last year, we did our first 10×5 project. I don’t know what it is about winter turning into spring that makes me want to get rid of everything we own… Surely I can’t be the only one, right? More and more lately, I’ve been feeling like we are just so buried by all the STUFF we own. And I really want our kids to embrace the ‘less is more’ way of living.
So, a few weeks ago, we decided to clear some clutter and 10×5 seemed like a good way to get the job done. Basically, a 10×5 project involves getting rid of 10 things per day (per person) for five days. We started with 5 empty buckets: one for each person in our family. And for five days in a row, we each chose (at least) ten things to put in our bucket.
I have to tell you, this time around, things went very smoothly! None of the kids freaked out about getting rid of stuff and I didn’t have to bug them about it either. Yay! It went so well, in fact, that I think we’ll do it again very soon.
