ENOUGH FOR A SMALL COUNTRY

IMG_2767
Holy shit. F*#&! I have enough clothes for a small country. It is painful to think I was able to justify buying every single item. Out, out, out it all goes. I am at my grandparents' house in Pennsylvania and we will be driving up to Smith on Sunday so I've decided to go through everything I own, get rid of anything that's too big, anything I don't need. It's not just clothing. It's also cosmetics, accessories. Who needs all this!? I've come downstairs to take a five minute break so my brain doesn't pour out my ears and my heart doesn't explode. This is exhausting and overwhelming and about a thousand other things. I never need to buy anything again in my life. Ever. It breaks me just a little bit that I can't call myself a minimalist. It would be a lie. Now I will go up for round two. Wish me luck. Vx

Good luck! But sometimes it can be painful for me to throw stuff away when I have more than enough! :/

I recently did that with my clothes as well. My closet was sparse to begin with but there was still much I wasn't wearing. So I counted it all and made sure to cut it by 50%. My husband even did his closet and then we donated it all.

Ahh I always feel a bit overwhelmed glancing into my closet- I know how you feel! I went through my closet this summer and got rid of solo much excess- it felt wonderful.

There's nothing like moving to remind you that you have way more stuff than you need! I always use moving as an opportunity to simplify, but somehow I end up accumulating more stuff anyway.

Don't beat yourself up too much, we are all a little materialistic anymore. The point is that you recognized this about yourself and you're doing something about it. I went through the same thing when we moved earlier this year so I can definitely empathize.

I try to do this every couple of years and every time I start I always think "what the heck was I thinking, I don't want to do this anymore!" but what to do with piles of clothes everywhere.
