Discarding Drill: Miscellaneous

It seemed like we were making great progress, but then we got to the miscellaneous category…

  1. Music
  2. Movies
  3. Games
  4. Bathroom
  5. Kitchen
  6. Laundry
  7. Bedding


This category was messy and took much longer to sort through than the previous ones. Each new pile was more daunting than the last. Because our move date is creeping up on us we’ve had to discard and pack after work, which is not ideal. Also Clayton hasn’t fully bought into the process so I feel like I spend a lot of time explaining to him why I want to sort through things in a certain way.

It took 4 days, but we finally got through everything! I’ve included a picture of our donate pile below. We also sold a lot of movies and games and threw out a ton of junk.


Up next mementos. One last category and we’ll be done. I just have to keep reminding myself that everything will be infinitely better next week!

  1. My biggest hindrance is getting my spouse to let go of stuff. And not only that… He wants things to stay in the same place. So the console under the DVD still has videos that we haven’t watched in 10 years+.


    1. I’ve run into the same problem with my husband. He’s been pretty flexible in general, but certain categories like comic books and video games were a no go. He assured me all 6 boxes of comic books sparked joy! 🙂
