After reading 7: An Experiemental Mutiny Against Excess I began to be led to more and more information about minimalism.
I came across this website talking about capsule wardrobes and became enthralled. I started searching "capsule wardrobes" on Pinterest and Google. The idea of having a minimalist wardrobe was interesting to me, and I decided to to do my own 30x30 fashion challenge to get me started on my journey towards a minimalist wardrobe.
I wrote a post about my desire to fight excess and become more like the Savior. I found this website from Pinterest and spent a good 45 minutes reading post after post.
I decided to create my own baby steps to start living a little more minimally.
1. Do a 30x30 challenge
2. Give away my old books
3. Find a library near my soon to be home
4. Use up my hair product I own before I buy any more
5. No spend November
6. Delete apps I don't use on my phone
7. Bake bread instead of buying it
8. Go to the temple every other week for date night instead of going out and spending money.
I don't want to live more minimally because it's "cool" or "trendy" or "hipster." I want to live more like my Savior, who lived a simple life, yet the way he lived his life inspired people then, and continues to inspire people today.
Have you looked into living in minimalism at all? What are your thoughts on it?
