Miss minimalist
Two years ago, my family and I moved into a 3-bedroom, 1700-sq-ft house. It was a big change from the 390-sq-ft apartment we’d left behind in England—but just about the smallest home we could find within a short commute of my husband’s office. Several readers have asked me how our larger space has affected our furniture needs. In particular, inquiring minds want to know: do we have more, less, the same, or different stuff than we had before? The answer: a little bit more, but really just different. Our house has an open floor plan—the kitchen, living room, and dining room are all in one big space.

De cette façon, je ne fais pas exploser le nombre de mes possessions, et le risque de me retrouver de nouveau submergée d’objets en tous genres diminue. Plutôt que de me débarrasser d’un tas de choses d’un coup, au risque de me séparer d’objets qui à la réflexion, me sont toujours utiles, je préfère procéder pas à pas. De cette façon, j’ai vraiment le temps de réfléchir à mon acte.

The Minimalist Mom I haven’t forgotten my commitment to track how much comes in, and goes out, of my home this year.

My Minimalist Clothing List by Matthew - March 10th, 2010.Filed under: Minimalist Experiment, Personal. Hello fellow adventurer, glad to have you stop by! You may want to subscribe to my RSS feed so you can follow along. Thanks for visiting! Get Rid of Half of Your Stuff I had to double, and then triple, check this, but apparently I've never written a post on minimalism before. Then again, I live in an RV smaller than your walk-in closet, so I don't suppose this post will come as a surprise to anyone. Still, it's probably worth writing a few paragraphs about it for anyone who is considering paring down, but has some lingering objections to it.
