Let's get real. Less usually isn't really more or however that cliche goes, but my husband Brian and I have taken a huge leap of faith (in our ability to purge). This year our New Year's resolution is not losing weight or breaking bad habits like chewing our nails. Nope our resolution is to become MINIMALISTS.
I know its against the growing trend of buy, buy, buy and stuff, stuffing, stuffed. I mean how can we ever aspire to get our own reality show on TV if we don't have drug addictions or stuff addictions? Against all better judgment of our mothers, "You'll need that when you have kids!" We've committed to each other and to those three Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle); with particular emphasis on REDUCE.
Each week we are committing to get rid of ONE (1) item each. That's 1 item for 52 weeks, a minimal total of 104 items. Let's be honest it's easy right now, and I know that any of you could accomplish such a feat for one month, maybe even a couple months; but 12 months of getting rid of stuff - that's a bit daunting.
Three weeks in we aren't nervous yet, but decided to journal our journey and share it with you! Check back each week for the items we rid ourselves of, and for extra info on how you can simplify your life and be a healthier, stronger, leaner and meaner, you.
Brian and Josey
