  1. Love this idea, totally stealing it too. I only have 7 months left before I’m 30 so maybe I can still finish 30 of my smaller/easier things. Then do a BIG over the top 40 before I’m 40 list…

  2. It’s a great idea. It gets a bit cumbersome, if you think about it, to keep it up — 70 before 70!!! Then again, maybe it makes sense ’cause you’d better be hurryin’ up then!
    By the way — no 2? Wanna edit the spelling?
    There’s some there that I’m still working on!
    Good luck with the minimalist — it’s not in your genes!

  3. Hi Liz! I just found your site when a friend of mine recommended I search for other bloggers doing 30 before 30 lists. I just started mine, but it’s got a twist. I’m trying to use the remaining 30 days before I turn 30 to raise 30K for charity. Crazy? Maybe. But I figure I can try, right?! Check it out: http://30before30in30.blogspot.com/

    Enjoy working through your list! I especially have been working on #24 and #29. I was successful at #25 and it felt great to donate them or sell at resale clothing shops!
