I started this blog to document my journey into minimalism. I stopped writing for a few months because I was under stressed, and honestly felt unmotivated. I didn’t know where this blog was headed.
I admit that I have a collection. As a minimalist, that is frowned upon, but I don’t care! This collection is really near and dear to me. It represents all the places I have lived. An interesting fact about me is that I am 21 years old, and I have had 16 different addresses. Needless to say, my family moves around a lot. New places, neighbors, scenery and schools were a given. But, libraries were always a constant. They were always there.
I never really thought about myself as a DIYer (Do It Yourself). But looking back, I guess I was. I hated spending money on ANYTHING. I still hate it. Why spend the money when you can do it yourself?
My best friend and I have always been obsessed with blogs. We were always starting a new one for some project we wanted to do or to keep up with a log on our lives. Since we always started a blog without ever keeping it up or finishing the project, I was a little hesitant on rather I actually wanted to document my minimalism journey or if I just simply wanted to get rid of clutter and be done with it; to simply live without telling the internet

The other day, I posted a video where I described two scenarios. The first one was of someone spring cleaning in a messy house and the second one was where someone cleaned up in a half house and enjoyed the rest of their day as a minimalist.
I’m posting about my journey so I can stay accountable.
Spring cleaning as a minimalist? What spring cleaning?
As I was moving at the end of 2014, I lost something very close to me. The video below shows what it was and how I’m letting go and being grateful for losing it.
