.thirty-one days of minimalism: truth.


 
If you are considering adopting a more minimalist approach for your home, consider these five truths:
 

Getting rid of the thing does not mean getting rid of the memory.

 

If your blessings become your burdens, then they are no longer a blessing

 

If it doesn't fit, get rid of it

 

More isn't better. It's just more.

 

If you forgot about it, you probably don't need it.

  1. So so so true. I struggle so much with getting rid of stuff. I need to remember to stop attaching emotions to objects. Thank you for the reminders and tips.

  2. Most helpful to declutter before we are in full swing of the holidays.

  3. We were on the same page with our 2nd to last post here. I did the summary in a set of 5 with links. Hey, it works. I pinned this post. Hoping to check the links later. The sentences alone are extremely thought provoking.

  6. Ah, so true!! My things have been in storage for about 6 weeks and we have finally moved into our home. As we get settled in, I realize how many things I really didn't need to keep! If I can go this long without it, I really didn't need it at all!

    1. That happened after our last move...there wasn't a whole lot I missed except my own bed. :-)

  8. The last one really is true--we moved three times and never unpacked six or seven boxes. When I finally unpacked them, I realized I didn't need the stuff and I gave it all away.
