it was such an easy move, i can’t believe i hadn’t thought to do it before. i took every item out of my car and placed them in a brown paper bag. after a thorough dusting/cleaning (easy to do with nothing getting in your way – see benefit #4), i returned only the items that i really need in my car. and that’s not too many things when you get down to it:
- proof of insurance
- an owner’s manual
- a few coins for tolls
- a pen
- a few cd’s which store nicely out of sight
that’s it. nothing else. it feels so refreshing to drive in a car without clutter. if you want a quick taste of the refreshing, stress-free life that is the minimalist life, start with your car and see how much better it makes you feel. and then imagine that same feeling sitting in your living room.
