Welcome to Minimize Monday, a new weekly feature on Mommy Moment. I’m pretty sure I am not the only one who feels a little overwhelmed at times by the amount of stuff that can accumulate in home. Although I am not ready to become a minimalist, I want to find a comfortable balance between clutter and minimalist living.
Every Monday I will post about getting rid of stuff. It may be a box full, it may only be one item, but by the end of the year I am guaranteed to have at least 52 less things in my house. Not only will I be getting rid of stuff, I have decided on a new house rule….
Every time something new comes into the house, something else must leave.
So what do you think? Want to take the Minimize Monday Challenge with me? Every week you can link up your Minimize Monday post right here on Mommy Moment.
I’m starting this first Minimize Monday with a bang. I decided to tackle the girls bedrooms while they were away at grandma’s for the night. Our girls rooms are tiny. I mean really, really small…take a look for yourself.
This is Kate’s Room. She is 6 years old.
And this is 3 year old Jane’s Room…
Now that you can see how small they really are, you know why I have to be careful about how much stuff we accumulate.
I went through the girls clothes and boxed up clothes that were too small. I got rid of 3 boxes!
So, what do you think? Can you part with something this week?
I’d love for you to grab the button and link up below.
