5 ways to minimise your wardrobe and laundry!

  1. Go through your dressers and closets and decided what goes and what stays! For instances, do you really need pj shirts when a t shirt or tank top does the job?  Helpful tip: Take it one drawer at a time! 
  2. Consider a capsule wardrobe! I’m not there yet, but it’s something to think about! Click >here< watch my favorite capsule wardrobe I’ve seen so far!
  3. Minimise as you put away clothes,too! A few days ago I wore a blouse that I really didnt like on me. When I got home I put it in my go bag!
  4. Getcha self one of these bad boys! 
  5. Do laundry as frequently as possible! Everyday I try to do a little bit if I can!

    How I minimise without making a mess!

       I started my minimising journey almost a month ago, and my biggest frustraion has been the mess I make in the process. My husband would come home, and I would explain cheerfully, “I know it looks bad, but it’s an orginized mess!”. And to some extenet it was. But the different piles would become bigger and bigger, and i ran out of room. 

           On top of all that, I always over estimated just how much I could get done at one time! I would start my minimising while Allison sleeps, and when she woke up the room was even messier than she left it. And when she woke up I couldnt give the room the attention it needed. Andddd when she finally went to sleep for the night I was too exhausted to give the current minimising project the attention it deserved. 

             My solution: A laundry hamper, trash can, and a trash bag.

    The laundry hamper is used as my keep pile! But you can also use a storage bin, or box.

    The trash can well for trash, obviously.

    And a trash bag for my no longer needed items!

     Allison still trys to make a mess of this and take things out from each of these, but this way is much more controled. This way I can leave the project when I need to and come back to it when I want to!

        Maybe this is common knowledge in the minimalism world. And maybe it took me way too long to discover a method like this, but I hope it helps someone!
