stuff stuff stuff stuff STUFFFFFFF!!!
I feel like we live with too much stuff. Feel the need to keep buying this stuff then somehow convince ourselves that we paid for it, therefore, we need to keep this stuff. My goal for 2016 is to become a Minimalist.
I am by no means an expert on Minimalism and do not plan to completely throw everything I have away and live off the lands or some shit lol. But I do want to declutter and downsize my living.
About a month ago I realized I buy a lot of stuff with the intent of using it but without fail, it ends up either left in the bag for weeks or used once and forgotten. Given I'm a broke college student, I can't afford to keep wasting money on impulse buys. Also, practicing minimalism will help me really see which things I use regularly and which things I don't.
After doing my research, I realized there are different degrees of Minimalism. You can become a minimalist mentally, physically, and artistically. I want to become a physical and mental minimalist but not to the complete extreme if that makes sense. I watched many videos from minimalist Rachel Aust and a few others and their #1 tip is that "you do NOT have to own nothing, you just have to own less."
Once I declutter and organize my room and kitchen I will make an updated post on my tips for letting go and starting fresh. I know this will be hard for me because I am sort of a hoarder lol. But it's only the first week of January so why not start off the new year with a clean slate and new mindset!!
