Graduating was the best thing to ever happen to me. Not because school was over (because I got grad school sooo, it’s not) but because I have never felt that much of a strong sense of accomplishment. For me, my college degree is something that I am so proud of, it makes it into my morning affirmations every day.
“I just stayed up all night studying for that test..what did you do last night?”- The words of busy culture at it’s finest.
The minimalism movement has been gaining traction recently. The Minimalists Netflix Documentary went on the most watched list, and people are realizing they don’t need to have material things in order to be content. But, knowing where to begin decluttering one’s own life and possessions can be daunting. Thankfully, there are many different resources out there, as well as different “games” to get people kick-started on their journey to minimalism.
Having a capsule wardrobe seems like the staple all minimalists have. As a result, when I first began my own minimalist journey, my closet was the first thing I decided to tackle. I began working through my wardrobe at a time when I lived between three homes, and I was moving constantly. Logistically, it just made sense for me to minimize how many things I needed to move from one place to another. I also was working on weight loss, so it was easy to get through some of the clothes that didn’t fit me anymore.
