Ah yes, the weekend is nearly upon us! How did your week go with the decluttering tasks and the No Spend? I managed to find a small pile of clothing to donate yesterday. Even that makes me happy though because some of the items I have been holding onto for a while thinking that I could make them work.

Let’s get on with today’s tasks shall we?

Day 13 Declutter Task:

Today, we’re going to tackle our outerwear and footwear. That means we’re finally going to let go of jackets, snow pants and footwear that no longer fit or we just don’t care for any more. Donate or sell the items you no longer need to keep. Outerwear also includes winter gloves, hats, scarves, etc.

This shouldn’t be too hard around here, especially in the footwear department. I don’t have many shoes and my husband has even less!  I think my struggle is going to be convincing my husband that he needs to finally throw away his old broken soccer cleats. (He thinks he might use them one day as backup shoes??) I think if it’s been a year and he hasn’t needed them, they’re gone. 

As for my daughters’ outerwear and footwear, the too small items and out of season ones will go into storage or get donated.

Day 13 No Spend Task:

Today we’re going to take a look again at our No Spend Weekend Ideas for some fun, free things we can do this weekend!

I’d like to do some baking with my oldest. I’ve got a nice big stash of bananas in the freezer that need to be turned into banana bread!

I will be posting each task in the Simply Frugal No Spend Declutter Challenge Facebook Group. This is where most of the discussion will be happening.

I will also be posting random progress reports throughout the challenge over at Instagram! Follow me on Instagram @simplyfrugal and use the hashtag #nospenddeclutter to get updates and see what others are up to during the challenge!

If you do not use social media, I would love to read your comments on each task, right here, below each challenge post on SimplyFrugal.ca!
