i have been working the past few mornings on minimalizing our basement/storage room. it is a large room with tons (possibly literally) of storage from the past nine years of marriage, two kids, and four houses. to date, i have collected over eight 33-gallon garbage bags of items to throw away/sell. it’s been an overwhelming task and i have hit “the wall.” the easy stuff is done – what remains is the pile of “questionables.”
and i needed a break, so i chose an easier project this morning – cups.
it took me about 15 minutes to minimalize one of our kitchen cabinets – the one with glasses/mugs/cups/plates/bowls. it doesn’t take too much brain-power to know which cups we use and which we don’t. those we use, i kept. those we don’t, i threw away. i removed over 40 items from our cabinet and i love the result.
i’ll let you know about the storage room…
