i wrote earlier about our need to return to some of the rooms that had previously been checked off our list as minimalized. despite our efforts to maintain minimalization, old habits can be tough to break. and so this morning, i found myself in the very master bathroom that once served as our first accomplishment. today, it became our first re-accomplishment.
the task was definitely lighter than one year ago and we were practiced up going into it this time around. we stuck to the same game plan that we have used numerous times over the past year: pull out every item, sort it into three categories (remove, relocate, or return), and return organized.
within one hour, the task was complete: the garbage bag was full, the cabinets were well-sorted, and getting ready in the morning has again become a simpler task.
it has been awhile since we made a clean-sweep of entire room as opposed to routine maintenance. it feels good. i’m rememebring again the joy that came with becomining minimalist.
