Minimalism continues!

October 8th, 2020 at 04:56 pm

In preparation for our trip tomorrow, I started packing yesterday. Since we are still changing seasons here and we are heading to a colder climate for our trip, I needed to go through the dark recesses of the closet to get to the warmer clothes. Since I was pulling so much out, I went ahead and started piles to donate and toss to continue with the minimalist efforts. I ended up with a bag FULL of clothes to donate. (Some I sadly never wore, and never will- online shopping is not my forte) My loss will hopefully be someone else's gain!

I still have a ways to go - I will soon be able to weed out all my work shirts, which will free up quite a bit more space. Since we have no plan to return to the office, I may go ahead and bag those up! (why not!)

I recently had blood work done and have received the results. Comparing them to 2 years ago, things dont look too bad, although there is definitely areas to improve. When the hub is gone, I eat much healthier, but when he is home its more meat and potatoes, which is his preference. I will find ways to change this. He can still eat as he likes, but I will be more purposeful in what I do and don't eat. This is huge for future financial wellness as well as health wellness, and just needs to happen.

I just have to say, I enjoy reading others' blogs but lately there arent as many as there used to be. I love sitting down with my coffee in the morning and catching up. To compensate, I am looking back at everyone's blogs to catch up on what I missed last year. I guess I am just trying to say you are all like dear ol' friends who I enjoy staying in touch with. I look forward to your new posts and responses! Thank you for the camaraderie!

    I'm glad you are back and have enjoyed reading your posts! I went through a pretty large purge back when I sold my single family home and downsized into the condo. I feel so much "lighter" and calmer with a lot less stuff. It took me a while to get through everything though.

    I, too, like to sit with my coffee in the morning and read the blogs. I agree there aren't as many as there used to be and I often wonder where people are ... yet I never blogged myself. I've been reading since about 2008 and have since got myself out of consumer debt yet I still read every day. When this blog was "down" I just wasn't the same in the morning. Anyway .... thank you for your posting and blogging! :-) I appreciate it and anybody else who reads this!

    Good job on getting rid of stuff!

    I agree -- I feel like we are friends on the blogs and look forward to catching up on everyone's lives.
