we’ve been minimal for one month now…
- the house is cleaner.
- the house stays cleaner.
- there is less clutter taking up space and energy in almost every room.
- needed items are easier to find – especially in closets.
- there is less distraction in our offices – work and home.
- spending is down.
- we’ve made $250 selling our old things and donated countless items to charity.
it’s been a good month for a typical suburban family in america becoming minimalist.
last week, one reader commented that she had been inspired to donate 5 bags of clothing to the salvation army. have you been inspired to minimalize any part of your home/life over the past month? if so, let us know.
