Day 49 of 192

I can’t believe that I have been decluttering for seven weeks now, it is such an amazing feeling to have less stuff. At first I wasn’t sure how I would feel about living with less. It has been a project for the past six years now. I feel quite proud of myself, and I hope this is the last year where I have to purge my own things. I haven’t really bought many new things, aside from tea. Tea and tea mugs will always be my weakness, but collecting tea mugs is something that brings me so much joy. I love having a variety of mugs.

I allow myself to have a collection of mugs because it adds joy to my life. To me, being a minimalist, it isn’t about only having 15 items in your life, it’s about only keeping things that add joy in your life. It’s also about being comfortable with living within your means, and you aren’t going on massive shopping sprees on the newest designs. Especially if those purchases are making you go into debts.

Over the weekend, my boyfriend and myself finished using my favourite candle. It’s called Champagne Toast, it smells amazing.

Digital Declutter: I’m still purging through photos on my photos. I have too many photos and definitely need to spend more time sorting through them.

Day 35 of 192

I have been going through my clothes, since I have realized that I have a lot of clothes that I don’t actually wear anymore. I am working hard to try to finally depart with the things that I no longer wear, or use. This project has been really moving.

This is today’s item. It is an old shirt that I never actually worn before. It’s one of those shirts that I thought I would wear, but never actually got around to wearing it. But I just kept it just in case. I know that I am not the only one that kept clothes or things “just in case”. Something that I have learnt from other minimalists is if it costs less $20, you can get it within 20km, then you should depart with it.
