I cleaned out my bathroom entirely, and it feels so good. It was kind of difficult, but I achieved that minimalist, clean and organized area that I have always wanted. One area down. lots more to go….
I actually wrote a guest blog post about my attempt to minimize the clutter here4 years ago
I’m finding that I have so much stuff and don’t really utilize it all or appreciate it. I know I need to simplify for peace of mind above all… and it seems that when I have less, it feels like more. I just found this box of pens and markers today, and there must be 100 of them in organized bundles. And then I have three different containers of pens as well… constantly moving around my room. And I can never find the one or two that I like and use most. It’s amazing that by having so many, the opposite happens- they are all under used. As well in my book collection… I love them and can’t get enough, but there are so many on my to be read list… and so many stacked up on top of each other, I rarely can find the ones I want to read. 5 years ago
my goals. I keep looking at them, and think they are all essential. But, I haven’t been making as much progress as I would have liked. And then I have goals about making steps for goals, and more goals about goals and it seems to be a little spiraling black hole of redundancy. I keep trying to create systems, and then don’t stick to them, and then create new systems thinking that it’ll work this time. Arrrrrgh. 5 years ago

I keep seeing it on my list, as the noble goal that I want to achieve, but don’t exactly believe it is possible. I guess “Simplify” means to me… clean, organized, and only having the basic, useful things in life. Last year I gave away so many books, and a ton of clothes that I didn’t need and I felt so much lighter. Now that I have moved, again, it is time to do this purge all over again. And, I want to have all of my belongings simplified, and very organized in preparation for moving to my next new place. I’m not sure when that will be… months, or a year, but I know that my next move will be to my first place, all to myself without roommates. I want to have everything prepared and organized, as opposed to the hurried, clusterfuck that seems to be characteristic of every other move previously. 5 years ago
