A Minimalist Challenge

I want to give myself a minimalist challenge for the new year. Although I have downsized extraordinarily, I still don’t feel like I am at a good minimalistic place. I still feel cluttered. So, let’s solve this. My challenge is to declutter/ minimalize/go through something like a drawer, box, bag every month and blog/make a video about it.

Every month? Why not every week or every day? Well, I live in a tiny apartment and as I said, I have already downsized EXTRAORDINARILY. I feel 12 spots that get uncluttered will be just enough. Besides, I don’t want to overwhelm myself and 52 and 365 are BIG numbers. I don’t think I have that many drawers and bags.

Look forward to updates on the first Saturday of every month!

Do you think this is a good challenge? What do you think?

Lazy Veggie Soup

Despite eating 20 oranges yesterday to ward off my fiance’s cold, today I woke up a little congested which grew to being a lot congested by the end of the day. We went food shopping, and on the way home I suddenly remembered, “Hey! Maybe we should have gotten some soup since we’re both sneezing and coughing up lungs.”
