Over the weekend I read the book, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and now it has me wanting to give 90% of everything I own away.. which I know I have said about 10000 times. Remember when I talked about wanting to be more minimalist also 10000 times? I REALLY still want to but find it soo hard when I do love clothes so much grrr. I need to find a balance somehow. But what I really loved about the book (some parts were a tiny bit much for me haha) but I loved that she talks about how each item has its purpose. If there is a shirt we bought but a year later haven’t worn and we don’t want to get rid of it because we spent money on it.. maybe that shirt’s purpose beyond just being a fun thing to buy at the time, was to show us what type of clothing doesn’t suit us or what we don’t like. That was it’s purpose, it has done that, and now it needs to go. That might not make sense having not listened to the whole book but I just like how she puts things into perspective because I am totally a clothes hoarder.
Did anyone who lovvves clothes and a million beauty products become more minimal?! Help meee. I told myself I am not going to shop the rest of the year and now look at me! I am back with a new outfit post wearing a NEW leather jumper. Freak. For now I have made our kitchen more minimal – we had so many random things including a tea kettle that has sat on our stove in NYC for a year and now here in AZ and has yet to be used, ONCE. Why why why. Time to declutter and I know in the book she says not go room by room but I think that is definitely better than deciding not to do it at all which is kinda the alternative right now soo.
Okay I promise now that the next time I bring up this topic I will have made strides in the right direction – k?!
But I do love this leather jumper….
