I don’t need all the stuff I have. I don’t need that bike in my living room that I rode maybe a handful of times over 5 years ago and moved across the country, to yet again, collect dust and not be ridden anywhere. In fact, I kind of regret the reasons why I bought it in the first place. I’ve been reading a lot about minimalism. Although I’m not sure I can label myself as minimalist, I can definitely see the value of the idea of living more simply. With less stuff, less processed foods, less distractions and more things I really want to focus on in life.
So, I’m going to do a little experiment. I’m going to start getting rid of the stuff I don’t need anymore. I’ve already taken at least 10 boxes of stuff to my local donation center this year, but there is so much more that I don’t need and I can donate.
And just so I have a little accountability, every time I get rid of something, I’m going to post a picture of it on Instagram.
If your curious about what types of things I’ve been reading re:minimalism, here are some links that inspired my transition:
