YLW (October 2023)
Monthly follow-up from my Year of Living Without. October was no candy or ice cream.
It was a great idea to go without candy for October. I only failed two days (one being late on the night of the 31st after skimming a bit from the kid bags). I didn't keep with the ice cream intention. I realized that my fear was overloading on candy (which seems like it's around all month long vs. just at the end post Halloween).
I did declutter some, but not nearly as much as I'd hoped to during October. I'm carrying that one into November and letting it be the focus. With some new items inevitably making their way into the house in December, I'd love to have thinned things way down before that.
