Minimalism Series Part 5: My 100ish Things

This list here might seem like a lot to some or not much to others, but for me for right now it is just the right amount.

Every item I currently have sparks joy and makes me happy to have it. I may purge out more in the future when/if a piece no longer suits me or whatever, but it feels a lot nicer to open my dresser or my closet, to walk into a room and see items that I enjoy/make use of.

Now, I made this list from memory and on a lark. I was intrigued by the idea of people counting their items. As I have stated multiple times for me it was never about a certain number to reach, but for a general feeling of yep, this feels right.

Things may need to be replaced or just not useful and happily let go of; life is constantly changing and not stagnant after all.

I am married and my hubby and I of course are equal in our shared stuff. I included mostly things that were personally purchased & used by me and didn’t include shared stuff cause hey I’m the blogger here so I can make the rules. 🙂

Thus I don’t include stuff like our couch, shared kitchen stuffs, items for our fur-baby, you get the idea.

This post is the last in my 5 part series on minimalism. I hope that you gain some value from having read this series and let me know all about YOUR journey into minimalism too! I would love to hear from you! <3

  1. You, my dear are very inspiring…not sure how many books I just donated, but believe me only kept the books, that are special to me and/ or I know I will read. Keep on shining, sunshine!!!

    1. Splendid! Much easier to hold onto books you know you’ll read, not only for less accumulation in general, but for far less to dust!
