30 Day Minimalist Challenge: Day 30

If you stuck with me this long you should be very proud! And your home should be a bit cleaner and less cluttered than it was a month ago. I have cleaned out our attic, kitchen, and junk drawers. Party decorations and favors, old pots and pans, and various knickknacks we no longer love were…
