Well, this was a big mistake. Turns out, playing the MinsGame is really hard. Discarding one thing on day one, fine. Eighteen things on day 18, now that’s getting tricky.
I’ve been scouring areas of the house I normally wouldn’t venture into – the cobwebby toolkit, the junk drawer in the kitchen – all in search of more stuff to throw away. Shudder.
I actually don’t know how I’m going to complete this. But, on the other hand, I have got through another ten days. Here’s how it’s gone.
11 magazines and magazine articles
12 badly-taken photos of people I don’t even recognise
13 CDs and DVDs that came free with newspapers
14 cards and postcards
15 of these things. (Are they called plastic pockets?)
16 mixtapes (By the way, my wife says HMV has started selling cassettes again. What the actual?? They were terrible!)
17 bits of shite from the junk drawer
18 bits of shite from the toolkit
19 bank statements (and yes, I am starting to pull at straws)
20 rusty nails and screws
Eek! As you might have been able to tell, my hauls are getting flimsier and flimsier. Have you done a better job at the MinsGame? Share your tips in the comments section!
