Trying hard to adapt to the minimalist life style ever since I made my last post. The suggestions that I got from my previous post were helpful.. Now, I have a charity bin at home as well. I have been discarding something or the other when ever I get a chance. For instance, I successfully got rid of cluttered unused/not-working pens (& working pens but in excess into charity bin), a handbag, some socks last week. I felt great in letting go of things.
If you are planning to be a minimalist, start small and continue doing it. It is a continuous process.
Last week, I purchased.. but only the necessary, of great quality and useful things that I am sure going to use them regularly. Being a minimalist, will make you think twice before investing in anything.
I still have lot of stuff that needs sorting and make a way out of my home. My brother truly adapted this style. He has just 2 bags worth of stuff that he can carry out and move on. How great to not accumulate more stuff? I believe this as a great effort considering my habits.
What about you? Do you feel trapped with maintaining/organizing/re-organizing/stressing out on the stuff you have? and keep on buying without realizing how much you have gathered over a period of time?
