i didn’t wake up saturday morning with any minimalist projects on my mind. i just woke up a little bit earlier than everyone else and happened to walk downstairs.
in our storage room, i noticed an old, empty box from a light fixture. i also noticed a large empty box from a stereo that i purchased 9 years ago. i have a habit of holding on to empty boxes from purchases (mostly major purchases, but there are some minor purchases too). i like to have the boxes because it makes taking the item back easier if i need to.
but as i looked around the room i couldn’t believe how much space was being taken up by boxes. so i made a decision to recycle every box from any purchase made over 6 months ago. i recycled over 15 empty boxes saturday morning.
feels good to have space back.
