30-day minimalism challenge

I have been experimenting with minimalism for a while and this month I’ve decided to take part in 30-day minimalism challenge.

What is the challenge about? There are 30 little assignments to do each day of the month. The challenges are designed to give you a momentum to start living with less, saving money, have a quality time with friends and family, settings goals for next few months and letting go of the things that don’t add value to you.

Why in November? I know right. Most people do these type of challenges at the start of the year. But for me, November is going to be a very special month, and this challenge perfectly aligns with some of the personal goals I want to accomplish this month.

What am I hoping to get out of it? Firstly, to discover new things about myself. Secondly, have some me-time every day to think about the day, get the task done and evaluate it based on my personal experience.

I had to personalise this challenge a little bit (so can you), and what I mean by that is – I moved some days/tasks around due to some commitments I had made in November already. But the list doesn’t change at all.
