So in response to the feedback from the Minimalist Interior Design Challenge that I posted a couple of days ago I have gone ahead and started making some changes.
It is certainly a work in progress, as is living a minimalist lifestyle, but it had to be done.
Why procrastinate? One of my tenets of minimalist living is to do more. To be more productive.
So yesterday I hauled damn near every item out of my minimalist apartment and piled it up in the front yard.
Here are the photos.
What a load of crap! Missing is my television, couch and love seat and kitchen table. One person just couldn’t wrestle that stuff out. I then started sorting. Keep, sell, trash. I sold a couple of items; made $35.00, so not bad. May have a yard sale tomorrow to get rid of some more.
So some things I am finding out.
- I have a lot of stuff. You just don’t realize it until it is all in a pile. And it is all the little things that really add up.
- There is not much I would be heartbroken over if it all went up in flames. That may sound ridiculous but it is true
- The 100 Thing Challenge is just that. A challenge! To get down to 100 things is going to take a lot of effort.
- I still need insight as to what to do with photos that I had upon the walls. Yes or no? You tell me.
I feel pretty damn good about taking this step along the minimalist path. I have a long way to go. I still really want comments from readers as to what they might do to create a minimalist apartment. So please comment with any tips and advice you may have.
I will post some more photos when I get stuff situated.
