I am very much a minimalist. I don’t attach to many thing, nor do I use much on a daily basis. I don’t enjoy collecting things (except guns). I hate things on flat surfaces, and despise clutter. Stuff clutters my brain and makes me crazy. Literally crazy. I get all claustrophobic and become bitchy when the house gets cluttered. I like to own little, and what I do own, I prefer to be out of sight.
My husband is learning, but…… he also has collections of collections. I’m not the kind of wife that will ever make him get rid of things, but he is learning to appreciate minimalism. He’s trying super hard. We just haven’t gotten to the place of get rid of but don’t rebuy or intend to replace. Bless his heart, he tries.
We are moving in 10 days and I’m beyond stressed out, but elated at the opportunity to get rid of stuff. I hope to get rid of half of what I personally own. Savers is going to hate me. I’m going to be ruthless when it comes to me and the kids. (They know the drill.) Gladiator is going to do what he is going to do. As long as everything has a place, I’ll be happy. Some things you simply can’t get rid of, but keeping stuff you haven’t used in years because you “might” need it is crazy to me. Ludicrous actually.
If you can’t get the gist, I’ll be blunt. I hate clutter, and our house- is TOO cluttered. Storage bins will be a thing utilized in the house, and only what is truly used and needed will be placed. I don’t like wasting precious time for memories, cleaning stuff just to have stuff.
I’ll keep you posted with pictures of the move. 🙂
