Taking Baby Steps to Becoming A Minimalist

Man, I haven’t talked about this subject in a while. I think it’s almost been six months since I set out to complete this. Unfortunately I have not be as productive with this project as I should be. On the plus side though, I do have a few minor updates about this.

Cleaning Up The Kitchen

My parents love sending stuff my way, and so I’ve collected a bunch of their tubberware as time has passed. Well, I have finally returned all of that helping clear up some space in the kitchen. One of my friends also was running low on cups, so we let him have a collection of cups we had collected during our time on campus. (Seriously, I think every club on my campus hands out plastic cups as incentive to join them.) But that’s about as much as I’ve gotten to cleaning up the kitchen. Do you have any tips for cleaning up the kitchen?

Clearing Through The Closet

On the plus side, I have 2 or 3 bags of clothes and such items ready for Goodwill that I’m excited about getting out of my apartment. However, I’m still in the process of cleaning out my closet. I thought I would have this part of the project done by now, but alas. My ideas and amount of time I have to put towards this project are not the same amount.


On the book front, I have a collection of magazines that I went through and will be giving to a local library soon. I only ended up keeping one of them, since it was very useful with the knowledge in it. I’m still reading through the Academ’s Fury, but I am progressing through it.

So though it has been slow, I am progressing in this project. One of my next big sections I plan to complete is getting rid of a lot of my raw materials. For example, I have a huge collection of jewelry supplies, but I haven’t made any jewelry out of it in a while. So I plan to organize my supplies and try to start working on those side projects. Who knows, I might even create a few projects out of this to post on the blog. 😉

If you have any tips or tricks for cleaning out your living space, comment below!

Thank you all for reading!

  1. In regards to the kitchen, I read a suggestion to throw most things in a box. After a month, whatever you have not gone back in the box for is likely unnecessary. I’m pretty sure it applies to things that you don’t use every day.

    You could perhaps extend the amount of time to six or eight weeks if say you are an avid cooker who uses many tools or are otherwise weary of this solution 🙂

    Good luck on your project.
