Challenges for 2017 - Update
I am setting myself monthly challenges for 2017 and I just wanted to post about my progress so far. You can read my last update here. So far I have completed 3 challenges and I've set myself 2 more.
Challenge 3 - Completed
This challenge was to wear all of the jewellery that I own (obviously not at the same time). I have so much jewellery, but I rarely make the effort to wear any of it, so I decided that I would wear every piece at least once. Basically, once I had worn a piece of jewellery, I would place it into a separate drawer, that way I would always know which pieces I still had to wear. This worked perfectly and now that I have worn everything. I am in the process of wearing it all again and gradually putting it back in the correct place. It was a also a great way to declutter some of the pieces that I no longer liked.

This challenge is to read 10 books in my collection. Whenever I go into charity shops I inevitably buy some paperback books, even though I have shelves full at home, so I am challenging myself to read at least 10 books this year. I don't expect to be able to complete this challenge within a month as I am not a speed reader and I don't have a lot of spare time, so as long as I complete this by the end of the year I will be happy.
Since challenge 4 is not going to be completed for the next few months, I also want to tell you what challenge 5 is going to be. Staying on the theme of challenge 3, I am going to make the effort to use every bag that I own at least once. I'm not even sure how many bags I own, but I know it is too many, so I just want to use them at least once to work out if I still want to keep them all.
Let me know if you are setting yourself some challenges for 2017.
