Nest: Day 55
Keep up your D-Day drive.
Still D-Daying like crazy? I hope so. Add as many extra D-Day sessions as you can. Simplify your possessions and it will be easier to get down and dirty in our last 30 days of Nest assignments, which will prepare you to turn your attention to what really matters: the creative, life-affirming activities you’d rather do instead of P4 and 3H.
If you prefer me to outline a plan of attack for the rest of this month, here goes (keep in mind we’ll get more detailed on all this next month, but even just 11 minutes a day will make a world of difference):
Today: rifle through your closet and dump as many clothes as you quickly can
Tomorrow: get rid of as much paper–magazines, newspapers, old files, books, letters, etc. as you quickly can
The day after : do a quick dive and dump of your fridge, pantry, and other kitchen areas
Day 4: conquer the extra towels and linens, and get rid of some rags
Day 5: grab a trash bag and get throw out what you don’t use from your bathroom cabinets
Day 6: run around your main living areas (den, family room, living room, great room, whatever) clearing the unneeded, the extra, the unwanted
Day 7 (if this month has 31 days): make a quick jaunt through one storage or utility area of your home, getting rid of what doesn’t belong
Remember: your D-Day kit consists of Dump, Donate, Deliver.
What togs will you toss today?

Combine and quantify to give you a push to purge.
