Starting "spring cleaning" tomorrow! Already know the tips, but book was a great resource and refresher. Out with the clutter now. If something comes into my home, something is going out! Jan 03, Steve Weber rated it really liked it. Some great practical trick for simplifying your life. I took the idea of 'eliminating one thing every day' to heart and for a month I managed to get rid of junk. The other idea of 'don't bring in something new without getting rid of something old - one-for-one' is another great practical tip.

All that I now have to my name back in Australia is a periodic table from , some YSL stilettos and an antique trunk filled with a few pieces of memorabilia. Find your favourite and buy a multiple if your love is true. This my take some trial and error. One pair of sandals.
One pair of sneakers. I actually used to have eight pairs of Havaianas. These days I have only one pair and somehow life goes on. I do struggle with this one a bit. Three seems to work for me.
Minimal Living: Zen and the Art of Moving Countries
Three pairs of heels. But I use all these things regularly, making them worthwhile. Use this rule to simplify.

Especially useful for socks, underwear, white shirts, pajamas that you love. All my sports socks are the same. Same with normal underwear.
I understand that this is verging on crazy territory but it makes life so much easier. Limit all your keepsakes to one container. You know that scene in a film where the person goes through their box of memories? Create a box of memories. It can be large or small; the simplicity is in having them all in one place. Currently, I have a chest next to my bed in Townsville. One step at a time, people.
Being too strict can backfire. I found that aiming to be a practical minimalist rather than a dogmatic minimalist definitely made the process far more achievable. Some people love to collect shoes. For me they are a symbol of my individuality and my belief in personal freedom! And I love my scarves: I currently own two, which it pretty minimalist for a collection. You get the picture. Mend or get rid of anything that is damaged. The process of moving is a great opportunity to prioritise getting things mended. I superglued coral bangles, got extra holes punctured in belts and visited the cobbler.

These pieces have had a good life. Be a friend to yourself. Moving countries is a great time to start accepting where your body is at. Focus on how each piece makes you feel. Is there a bad memory attached to an item? Does it send you on a mental spiral every time you look at it? Get rid of it!

But rarely are clothes that your friends hand down to you worth wearing. Most secondhand things I receive end up in a secondhand store within six months. Only take it if you truly want and will use it.
