New Years Minimalism Challenge Wrap Up

Posted by in Minimalism

Have you ever had too much on your plate? Too many things on your list? Said yes more than you’ve said no? That’s how I feel right now. In an effort to find out exactly what I want to do with my life in the next few years, I’m trying everything I can. And there is a lot to try. But the only way to find out what I like and what I don’t like is to try it. Yeah, yeah, and what does doing too much have anything to…read more

New Years Minimalism Challenge Week 1

Posted by in Minimalism

It’s been one week today since the New Years Minimalism Challenge started and I’m doing very well. I moved into a townhouse 3 months ago and, coming from a much larger house before, had a ton of stuff that had to be taken care of.

I’ve gotten rid of a weeks’ worth of stuff. I’m falling behind though. I have to admit it’s hard to stay on track with the things I want to sell. They sit around like I haven’t gotten rid of them. Another issue I’ve run into is actually getting the things out of the house. I’d rather not make…read more

My 30 Day Minimalism Challenge

Posted by in Minimalism

I’ve been reading a lot lately about minimalism and how it can greatly benefit your life and that of those around you. The whole idea is that you live your life with what you need and nothing else. Everything else that you hoard and keep and have to push around all the time is just wasted space, money and time. Basically we waste our lives buying and organizing “stuff”. Yes they might have a use at one time or another but do you really need that amazing doohickey that sits…read more
