The word ''minimalism'' outlined with a pink and 
turquoise gradient.

Minimalism doesn't have to be a white room that's nearly empty.

My minimalism is white, pink and bright turquoise because those are colors I adore. My minimalism has room for my beloved video game collection and select books. I didn't declutter my doubles but stored them for when the one I currently have in use breaks.

Minimalism is about simplifying life and keeping the things you love and derive use from. It's not just about possessions but also spending your time in ways that are worthwhile to yourself.

I like minimalism because it means I have to make less choices and it makes life simpler and my space less overwhelming.


Helpful Tricks

Considering where an item's "home" will be before purchasing. If I can't think of a spot that's a strong sign not to purchase.

Keep a wardrobe basics table (this video explains what it is and how to set one up)

Avoid unnecessarily browsing physical and digital stores (still need to work on the digital one but it's getting better)

Ramblings about my own progress and things I enjoyed in a given month.

January

Hid song ratings in my music player so I can't fuss over "completing the task" of rating every song.

Feeling stressed out by how much stuff I still have. I'd like to try a 30 day challenge similar to this one, although with a less strict start (having a mattress, fridge, etc).

Mind you I'm not going for a magic number, and I don't intend to become an extreme minimalist. I'm just noticing there's much I haven't used in a long time, and it might be time to part with some of that.
