An airline once lost my luggage. I freaked out! But then a couple of things happened that led me on this journey to owning less stuff (not in every area, but in many) and to now, appreciating minimalism.
First, I made do without those clothes and in a few days, I started to like having less stuff so much that I found myself hoping United Airlines would permanently lose my suitcase so that I could claim a free trip or something.
It didn’t turn out as I had hoped (they had their act together and found my bag), but those four days of owning less, started me down this road of living with less so I could feel and see more.
If you’re a girl (sic woman), your wardrobe could be cluttering up your life.
That’s why I wanted to share this video.
Now, while I don’t have a minimalist wardrobe per se (I’m what you might call…minimalist-light), I do appreciate the sanity of having an organized wardrobe with a little bit of space between each hanger. This quasi-minimalist approach in my wardrobe, helps me to keep mine edited and uncluttered.
And you wouldn’t believe how much time I’ve saved! I also get off on seeing my stuff beautifully displayed and I put together outfits in a snap when I get dressed.
GET STARTED NOW!
Start with one area of your wardrobe and work your way through it.
- If you start with your handbags, for example, pull out 3-4 that you use 80% of the time.
- Keep 1 or 2 evening bags in dust-proof bags and pack those away under the bed or in easy-enough-to-access storage.
- Displaying them on a bookcase (if you have the room and like them that much), can bring a creative element to your wardrobe.
