Woo hoo! we’re at the end of week two! I’m enjoying the extra space I have cleared up in the areas we have worked on! On Fridays, I like to end the week with an easier task. Something that won’t loom over you all weekend. 🙂

Day 8 Declutter Task:
I am a one purse only kind of gal and a backpack every now and then when I have to tote my laptop along.
However, life with kids means my purse is currently a catch-all for snacks, toys, my wallet, appointment cards, shopping bags, receipts, garbage and so much more. Sometimes I have no idea I have so much in there!
Despite the mess that is in my purse, I think today’s task should be quite easy to get finished. I actually just purchased a new backpack from Mountain Equipment Co-op on clearance so I actually have to add a few things to it! (Pens, notebook, ear buds…etc.)
While I don’t have many tips for purse organization, I think a purse organizer from Amazon like this would be wonderful:
So, how messy is your purse or bag? How do you keep it organized?
Day 8 No Spend Task:
You know what? I think it’s time for a reward. But don’t worry, we’re still not going to spend money. 😉
Since we just cleaned out our purses/bags, you may have come across a forgotten gift card. Today, you’re going to use it on something to treat yourself! I recently came across a gift card for Blenz coffee shop, so I’m going to stop there today!
If you didn’t come across any gift cards, I have a post I wrote with 16 Ways you Can Treat Yourself for Free!
What are you doing to reward yourself?
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!
