Minimalism

I think that with Spring Cleaning, taxes, and needing to figure out how to deal with the garden while holding a baby and fielding a constant stream of chatter from a three-year-old, I’m drawn to simplifying what I can.

I attacked my closet yesterday, inspired by Project 333. The “active” part of the closet is now under control (and under 33!), but I have to admit that I had trouble figuring out what I could cull from the off-season clothes piles – winter, summer, working, camping, etc. Still, it’s a start.

I’m encouraging J to start, too.

I’m eyeing the baby clothes that C has already grown out of (tubs and tubs worth – I’ll tell the tale of the multiplying baby clothes some other time) and thinking that they are not long for this house.

I’m not looking to live out of a backpack or only owning 100 things – for me, lagom has more items than that right now. But what we have now is too much clutter, too much to wash, too much to tidy, and more than any of us actually use.
