It’s spring weather sort of…rainy, gloomy and partly sunny.
The idea of piling all my clothes on the bed and donating the ones that don’t bring me joy sounds like a bad idea. I’m tired of wearing my winter clothes and it’s not warm enough to switch over for the next season. If I followed Marie Kondo’s advice next winter, I’d have to shop for an entire new wardrobe. Sounds like fun.
My bank account has been following the minimalist life style too long for me to purchase much of anything new.
Then there are the books. So many books in my house and I’ve donated a lot of those already. I’m going to say the ones that remain all bring me joy or like the ones my laptop sits on earn their keep.
Collections to pair down? I had to think about that one. I don’t seem to have those either unless you count the millions of files and photos on computer. I suppose I could take the next ten years and tidy those up. Nah. Can’t see those so they can’t possible count as clutter, right?
There is one room in my house that could use some tidying.
The sewing room.
Shudder. That room is a scary mess. So many things were piled in there when my son and his wife and my grandkids moved in while their house was being built. Sure they took their stuff out but the room is ‘out of sorts’ in a major way.
This is where following these plans becomes tricky. It seems to be the area that I’m not ready to let go of that causes me and maybe others to hold back from letting go.
That room will take a long time to go through and I’ll have to evaluate if I want to keep sewing. I think I do but honestly, I haven’t sewn anything in five years. But I want too, I think. I don’t have time until summer to tackle this issue, but it is weighing on me. And that’s when the tidying up and minimalist people say it’s time to get to work and find out what’s important enough to stay.
I’m giving going to set a deadline for next September to have that room back together or packed to donate. Pray for me!
What about you? Have you hopped on this crazy train of living like a minimalist?
