My mom's house the final day of our attic purge. We're trying to make a garage work-space.
More Stuff is a trap. We're told we're only successful with huge energy-sucking houses and when we're in possession of loads of objects. I'm a Stuff-lover, but I won't be a slave to Things, I won't spend my whole life working a job I loathe to fill my life with Stuff I don't need. Every year since I left the day job I've dramatically decreased my possessions and this year I want to go all the way! I want to be a minimalist and challenge myself to own as little as possible.
All of these boxes have been sorted and/or donated.
I want to own less so I live more, I want to feel completely location-independent and free. I want housework to be non-existent because I won't make
- Go through boxes, trash as much as possible.
- Consolidate projects to one area
- Sort smallest supplies and label
- Schedule dates to finish projects
- Get rid of ALL clothes I don't 100% love and feel comfortable in
- Repair and take in what needs to be finished
message me if you want dibs. I'm letting go of a lot of my highest-quality stuff.
- Sell/Donate the ones I can easily check out from the library (take photo so I don't forget 'em)
- Keep ONLY frequently-refrenced books, at least 'til I copy the important info to the PC
- Set aside time to read hard-to-find ones so I can eventually sell/donat
- Sell them all! Update Netflix so I can watch any of them whenever I want.
- Photograph and list all of the nerd/nostalgia stuff
- List everything I haven't, re-take photos
- Re-price and place all of the items in Southern Crossing Antique Mall
- Get cloud server space
- Move all my MAC files to the cloud server, separated into neat folders
General Home Clutter
- Go through all drawers and cabinets one-by-one, toss clutter and duplicates
- If I don't absolutely love or need it, sell or donate it
Feng Sui Project (Ambition!)
This is a crazy one I'll likely go through step-by-step with before and after photos
- Check out Feng Sui Books, check out sites and articles: good one here, good videos, good sit
- Apply Feng Sui principles to each room in the apartment one-by-one (article here)
- Add fresh green plants and "Water" elements- Feng Sui demands it. And I adore plants.
Any tips to add? Or inspiring websites? I'll follow-up with my progress perhaps weekly. I'd love it if you did the same! Live like The Fisherman, less Junk, more Experiences.
