Minimalist Challenges—Fun Ways To Declutter + Simplify

Simply + Fiercely

A minimalist challenge takes one or more areas of your life (like your wardrobe or shopping habits) and provides you with a fun way to switch things up.

Minimalism is a mindset, and it’s also a skill that you build up over time. It can be difficult at first to envision this new way of living.

If you have the classic problem of a wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear, then you need to know about Project 333.

Find someone else in your life who is interested in living better with less, and see who can last longer in the game. On the first day, you will both get rid of one item, two items the second day and so on until you reach 30 items on the 30th day.

You can have the same fun (from the comfort of your home) by playing decluttering bingo. There are existing bingo sheets on the web or you can create your own.

Embracing minimalism also means adopting a minimalist mindset. The rules are deceptively simple—take five minutes out of each day to do nothing—but I think that many of us would be surprised by the challenge.
