Minimalism

Living in boxes – a few days in

There’s something quite liberating about living with only the stuff you need. My clear out got rid of over two boxes worth of clothing, books and general rubbish I had been hoarding out of a sense of necessity.

After I had cleaned out my stuff, I packed everything else away in boxes. In the two days I’ve done this I’ve taken out the following things.

  • Laptop and charger
  • Phone and charger
  • Two sets of underwear
  • Jeans
  • Blouse
  • Socks and one pair of boots
  • Work Uniform
  • Make-up
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Purse
  • One bag
  • Car keys

It’s very likely I will take out much more stuff in the next month. But it’s refreshing to see how I can live of the basics and it’s also helped me to see what I truly need in my life and some things in my boxes have already been thrown away.

This method of living is very refreshing, it’s given me a cleansing sense of living and allowed me to not be worry about material things. I’m intrigued to see where this takes me and also with what gets thrown away after the month is done.
