Holding onto things "Just In Case"
Just in case I lose weight, just in case I gain weight...
Spare lightbulbs, batteries, toothpastes, toilet paper...
Some are necessary. Some are excessive!
Right now, I have 9 tubes of toothpaste and 75 rolls of toilet paper. Yes I counted. That's how fun-filled my life is right now! ;)
I think that's a little bit excessive...for a so-called minimalist, don't you think?
This is my greatest weakness. I feed 8 people everyday, and shopping regularly is hard for me with a toddler in tow. So when I have the opportunity, I stock up, e.g I would buy 12 jams, 8 boxes of cereal and 6 tubs of butter.
So my pantry is an absolutely mess. And massive. And nothing minimalist about it. And nothing like the picture above.
I might read it again, someone might want to borrow it...or I just want to look smart and show-off to people that I've read it (!)
I'm still holding onto baby toys as I'm having a third. So can't quite go nuts and donate the lot unfortunately.
Ditto. Baby stuff still in storage.
I need to let go of these things, and let go of the "just in case" scenario. I don't need to be prepared for every situation.
Live life on the edge!!
No tomate sauce? Learn to cope! Or at least learn to like BBQ sauce. Well, it's not so easy for my 5 year old son...but he'll be ok.
