Almost Friday(ha,ha) and minimalism continues

Well, I think we’re all caught up with stuff from camping. The 5 millionth load of laundry is done. The dishes from the tent trailer have been thru the dishwasher. The house chores are caught up too. This week was Flylady’s Living room zone which is a snap for me as there’s very little to do in our front room. I was the inside windows. Dust everything and then I washed the bottom of the couch cushions since someone kept putting their feet on them. Since it’s a white Ikea couch, it’s really easy to keep clean and I love, love the white couch. Never thought I would but I do.  Since there’s really no clutter in this space it’s quite easy. I did go thru the Heywood cabinet and decided to get rid of the last Franciscan desert rose big bowl and platter. I ‘m going to take them to the Cancer Thrift store this morning. I

I did go thru the Heywood cabinet and decided to get rid of the last Franciscan desert rose big bowl and platter. I ‘m going to take them to the Cancer Thrift store this morning. I haven’t used them in years so what the heck am I keeping them for,. We don’t entertain or have people over to eat so what’s the purpose of a large bowl and platter. I also decluttered the fondue pot. I do use this once a year at Christmas but I’m thinking I can use something else to put fondue cheese in.   I also have a giant Art book to go as well. We used this a lot when home schooling but that’s a long time ago and it’s a giant book that’s just in the way. Honestly, it amazes me the layers you go thru when minimalizing.  I’m not sure even using the KonMarie method you could get thru the different layers of emotional issues with things in one swoop.  I’ve been at this over 5 years and still learning new things and as a result get rid of things that I didn’t before for what ever reason.

My suggestion is to just keep looking at your space and reevaluate what’s useful and what is stuff just hanging around. And does it serve a need in your life NOW.

On a side note, my daughter just finished a 30 day challenge of 10 things a day to declutter. This is just out of her tiny room so she did absolutely great.

Today is a gym day and then I’m going to the Koffee klatch to see who shows up. I guess there’s some library stuff to go over. I’m making up 2 gift baskets for the bake and book sale so I’ll get that done soon.

Dinner is crock pot summer minestrone with our zucchini, other squash, green beans, and carrots. Oh, and our tomatoes are the base.  I might make some biscuits on the side too.

One thought on “Almost Friday(ha,ha) and minimalism continues

  1. I so agree with your thoughts on de-cluttering. There is never a start and end to decluttering, it is always an ongoing process of editing our items. Rarely have I ever missed getting rid of something and I always feel relief when I am able to let go of something. Still amazes me how emotional it is when the brain knows IT’S JUST STUFF.
