Minimalism is an everyday process

Minimalism isn’t a one-and-done type of thing. It’s an ongoing process. One filled with constant decision-making, questioning, and doing.

Since moving into my new space, I’ve created a corner for the things that no longer serve me as I unpacked and reorganized.

Because I’d rather have an outdoor dining table, my actual dining room is my donate corner. After a month of living here, there are probably well over 100 items in this pile, including old cookbooks, an old yoga mat, Christmas decor, a small backpack for hiking (I already have plenty), a cooler, and more.

I’m nowhere near where I want to be in terms of possessions, but it’s freeing to let go each chance I get. And its cathartic forcing myself to be more discerning about the purchases I do make.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
