Minimalist Monday: Boxes Boxes Everywhere!
When Scott & I moved to Colorado (or well, decided to live the mobile life) we widdled our possessions down even more.
This was our storage unit that held all our belongings while we lived in St. Maarten for a year:
This is what we took to Colorado. It's still a little too much for my inner minimalist, and I suspect we'll weed through it a bit more once we settle into Colorado. It's mostly clothes, gear, kitchen things, computers and camera equipment:
and this is what we got rid of:
Anyway, point is -- we're living among many of these boxes. I'm still (slowly) putting things away and I've found myself more anxious and stressed than usual. A real reminder that less is more and out of sight, out of mind.
When I have a clean, organized environment I'm happier, less stressed and more productive -- it took living among boxes to realize this, to be reminded of it.
My hope is to insure you to get up, and put a few things away -- out of sight! Let it be zen!
