    I would like to minimize my life. I have way too much stuff that I never use. I am looking for suggestions to get rid of more stuff.

    I stopped dying my hair, cleaned out my closet and got rid of everything that didn’t fit. Any tips & tricks that you could share?

    Haven’t yet but seriously considering getting rid of the ironing board. Maybe keep the iron in case I need it (hee hee) I can always use the dining room table or the floor. Have done that several times.

    Coffee before work. I now bring my own from home. I also got rid of my old books, CD’s, and DVD’s. Everything is done digitally now. Releasing the sentimental value from these items was tough 😩😢

    hahaha This is a project I have been procrastinating forever. Maybe 2020 will be the year I will get started. Would love to learn more about the positives and negatives of going minimal. I will keep checking back on this discussion. Thanks!

     I donate to The Salvation Army every 3 months , it has helped me to live a minimalist life , sometimes we only realize later that we shouldn’t have done it. Better late than never.  BTW good ones from Andrea

    Plastics in the kitchen and anywhere else can be eliminated. Switched to glass jars and containers. The plastic containers will not go to waste, though. I’ll be using them for office organization and garage organization. Whatever is left over will be donated.

    I seem to have the opposite issue, I find it very easy to give things away. I realised a long time ago that attachment (to objects) was caused by love, the memory of when an item was purchased, the sentimentality of someone dear to me who had gifted an item etc. It dawned on me that what really mattered was not the objects but the memories. I carry those with me always, they take up no space.

    The wise, spiritual masters of the East have always promoted ‘simple living, high thinking’ which I grew up hearing regularly from my late mum. This is essentially minimalistic living so that the impact on the planet resources is minimal. As a rule of thumb I try to only buy the essentials so things don’t accumulate over time. It saves so much time on shopping. Lol.
