Another Goal

One of the resolution/goals that I made for this year should be easy. As most of you know when you settle at one place for just a little time things accumulate. With that being said I will get this place back as minimal as possible. Each day I will try to remove something from this place and get rid of it. So far I am doing good with this plan. I may not go somewhere everyday but I can put it in the trunk for when I do head to town and pass the donation box. At the end of each month I will tally up how much I have gotten rid of and once again at the end of the year. Its not that the house is cluttered its just I have to much stuff and I want it to be back minimal, I feel more comfortable with minimal. How about you? Got a goal to get minimal this year?

I don't have to. Uncle Sam keeps me more minimal than I want to be.

i have some books i want to read on minimalism, and I watched on a show on either Amazon Prime or Netflix on minimalism, and it has me craving that lifestyle! You encouraged me to start to read those books sooner

I am giving things away too, those items that we don't use or we actually don't need.

@andriaperry Just because I can't see items that are stored away, they're still accumulating dust!

It's hard to get rid of things you still like or think you may need. I have downsized quite a bit and now am pretty happy with what I have. Keeping it down can be a challenge too!

The things I keep that "I think I might use" are building materials and plumbing stuff that I can and will use on a rental. The cabinet I cleaned tonight was in the kitchen.I got a shopping bag filled with things I do not need anymore.

@andriaperry I love to get rid of the clutter too- We're in a smaller place and it really shows if you have too much.

I cannot say that it's a resolution or a goal, but I also have too much stuff and I want to get rid of a lot of things.

This is one of my main ones for the year, once again. I did this many years ago and then I inherited way to much stuff.

@andriaperry I do not even want to think to all the stuff packed in the big apartment of my mother. I know I have to go through all her things now. I need to rest a few days before starting.

Now that I've read this discussion of yours, I realised I have to do some decluttering at home. I should get rid of stuff that I no longer use anymore so I would have more space in my home and less clutter. Yes, my house is a mess.

@andriaperry I usually don't sell my unused items. I usually give them away.

You know my goal. I need to sell the house, all the furnishing down to the last nail in the wall. It won't be easy but I already have an offer of where to live in the states so things are looking up bit by bit.

I am currently familiarizing myself with bit coins. I want to accumulate them and invest in them. This is just a few months goal since it is something I can quit if I am not good at.

@andriaperry I am using the easiest option of getting them and keeping them then I will sell when their value goes higher so I can make a profit.

My mother wants me to have this goal, but some things I want to keep. But I have been giving away more clothes than usual.

Yes! I need to clear out my closets and get rid of a bunch of this "stuff" I've accumulated over the years. I have too much and my home is cluttered.

My home is not cluttered but the closets are, the shed is and the garage is. The shed and garage to the point I cannot find nothing I need. So I will organize as I go, label tubs and keep alike stuff together.

My goal is to get more organized and unclutter certain areas in the house.

Its seems to be the storage areas that are my problem. Closets, the shed, the garage.

I like minimal also. Everything I own could fit in a closet, except my bed.

On the one hand, I want to thin things out and go minimal. But on the other hand, I am just about to have anywhere from 1-4 children setting up on their own. Getting rid of those extra pots and pans, kitchen appliances and the like, would probably be ill-advised right now. At least for me.
