Taken from The Minimalists, here is the Minimalism Game:
Find a friend or family member: someone who’s willing to get rid of their excess stuff. This month, each of you must get rid of one thing on the first day. On the second, two things. Three items on the third. So forth, and so on. Anything can go! Clothes, furniture, electronics, tools, decorations, etc. Donate, sell, or trash. Whatever you do, each material possession must be out of your house—and out of your life—by midnight each day.
It’s an easy game at first. However, it starts getting challenging by week two when you’re both jettisoning more than a dozen items each day. Whoever can keep it going the longest wins; you both win if you can make it all month. Bonus points if you play with more than two people.
If it’s Trash, I will throw it out that night. However, if I am selling or donating an item, they will go in a box. At the end of the month, if things didn’t sell (via Poshmark, Craigslist, or FB Marketplace), all of it will go to the donation bin to help bring value to someone else.
