Towards Minimalism

I saw this quote on Pinterest (follow me here) and had to share it. I used to think it was amazing to have so many posessions, but as I move further into adulthood, I've noticed a conscious shift. Now I prefer only to have things I love and use the hell out of around me. So I'm moving towards minimalism.

Are you a minimalist, maximalist, or somewhere in between?

  1. I'm think I'm somewhere in the middle. I'm definitely not a minimalist because I like things. I'm getting better about only keeping/buying things I love, but it turns out I love a lot of things!

  2. I like this ... so true :)

  3. great quote and I couldn't agree more!
    We all have way too many things.

  4. Welcome back. :-) I'm definitely somewhere in-between.

  5. I'm in the process of making the shift, my room is proof that I was definitely (recently) obsessed with *things.* I've developed a strategy, where every week, I pack up the things I don't need/use for sale/donation. When I first started, it felt so liberating - I now only own jeans that I actively wear!

  6. I've moved to a new apartment every year for the past 6 years. Every time I have to pack up my stuff, I tell myself I'm going to become a minimalist. But that never happens. I have a difficult time parting with stuff in general. Ratty old sneakers from 9th grade? Yup I still got 'em.
