|I have two toddlers. Enough said.|
If there is one thing I have learned from all the reading I've done on minimalism, it's that everyone's definition of minimalism looks different. While most people would agree that it involves reducing things to the barest yet most effective state, everyone lives it differently-- in design, or actual number of possessions, or anticonsumerism, or search for inner peace. So for me, here are the things that are important on my journey:
~Keeping only objects that are either useful or special
~Reducing the mental clutter that excess objects bring
~Creating specific places for the objects I choose to keep (A place for everything, and everything in its place!)
~Reducing the amount of stuff I bring into the house
~Understanding why I keep the things I do-- and it had better be a darn good reason!
I'll try to expound on the above during this miniseries, as I have the time.
