Minimalist Monday // The Living Room & Main Closet

It’s becoming a struggle to find things! What started out as excitement – purge! purge! purge! – has evolved into hard work and a lot of back and forth on if something should go. I’m an anti-pack rat by nature, so if any part of me hesitates at the idea of throwing something out, I take that as a sign to keep it.

I’ll start a little “We’ll discuss this later” pile for the end of next week.

Throw something out of your life today! You’ll feel so great about it. Promise. 🙂

    Goodbye to ‘Maze Runner!’ It will be sad to see books go, but sometimes, it’s easy to cut the ones we weren’t huge fans of.

    Good luck!

      Definitely don’t foresee myself reading that one for a third time! I passed it along to a friend so he can read it before we go see the movie. I’m really looking forward to the movie! Hope it doesn’t disappoint. I’m going to refrain from reading your post on it just yet…hopefully. 😉

        Haha, don’t look! After you see the movie I’ll be interested to see what you thought. It kept a lot from the book but changed a lot, too. I think to make it easier to digest in the given time. Enjoy!

    It’s too soon for me to say goodbye to The Maze Runner ha ha! Goodness me though, I love your suitcase/tablestand look! It’s darling 🙂

      Thank you, Claudia! I promise my copy of The Maze Runner has found itself in good hands. Gotta keep the ‘shuck face’ ‘klunk’ and ‘good that’ vibes spreading love around the world!

        Bah ha ha! Oh man, I must admit, I’ve intentionally added a few of these slang words to my vocabulary; it feels awesome when my friends (or mom) look at bewildered and puzzled XD

        Spread the love!

      I must say that I loved the challenge. I’m still keeping an eye out for things that can be purged. It’s become an obsession! Ha! As well as a great reminder to be mindful of the things you surround yourself with. If you decide to take it on, good luck to you!
