Minimalist Journey: Discarding

Published by:

1474740725_hqdefault.jpg



Whenever I feel stressed, I clean. In this video, I go through every one of my belongings and downsize even further. My inspiration comes, in part, from Marie Kondo, auther of The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up, and in part from realizing how happy I feel in a decluttered space. I also find comfort in knowing that I can adapt to any situation that life will throw at me, with limited effort.

1474667656_maxresdefault.jpg



I finally have the kids clothes organized, folded and put away in their dressers! I also show you how to make a DIY drawer divider. I am having so much success using the KonMari method so far. I am almost done with the clothing category and it feels so great to have purged so much clutter from our home. I am so excited to go through the next categories and get rid of even more stuff!

If you haven’t read the book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo, get yourself a copy and join me on this journey!! Thanks for watching!
