KonMari Method: The Kitchen, Part 1

Published by:

1474799371_maxresdefault.jpg



After reading “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo, I have been inspired to declutter and simplify our home. My husband and I have found value and importance in living a minimalist lifestyle and we are making changes in our lives everyday to embrace this new way of living.

In this video I share with you what our kitchen looked like before I implemented the KonMari method, as well as all of the kitchen items I am getting rid of.

Next week, I will be posting Part 2 which will show our newly simplified and organized kitchen.

Thanks for watching!

MY MINIMALIST CLOSET TOUR (KONMARI) | Minimalism Series

Published by:

1474653938_maxresdefault.jpg



Hi friends! 🙂

This is my closet at the moment. I’m still working on saying goodbye to a few things and trying to figure out how to organize it the best way possible with the space and layout that I currently have. Minimalism is a journey for all of us and I can only move forward from here, which is great. I’m very proud of myself and the HUGE progress I have made! 🙂

Minimalism Tag

Published by:

1474595378_hqdefault.jpg



This tag is comprised of six questions relating to minimalism and decluttering. They are as follows:

1. What drew you to minimalism?
2. How did you start the decluttering process?
3. Have you ever counted all your things? If so, how many things do you own?
4. What are your tips for dealing with the desire for more?
5. How do you deal with non-minimalists in your life?
6.Do you have any guilty pleasures where minimalism doesn’t apply?

This tag was created by Hello Cathy. Here is the link to her video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nu8TS_yXk9A

The book I mentioned in this video is The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo.

MINIMALIST PACKING: Jogasaki Coast, Japan

Published by:

1474556343_hqdefault.jpg



This is how I pack my backpack for shorter travel trips (1-4 nights).

≫ Website: http://www.tarawhitetalks.com
≫ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tarawhitetalks
≫ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tarawhitetalks

For this trip we went to the Jogasaki Coast on the Izu Peninsula of Japan. We stayed at Hanafubuki Ryokan which included 7 private onsens. We did portions of the cliff walk and also visited Mount Omuro. Mount Omuro is an inactive volcano. Most of the coast and cliffs are shaped from its lava.
