I have started my hopeful journey to being a minimalist. Which is kind of funny based on the amount of things I have. But I started today listing some of my clothes on Poshmark and also found out you can list dishes on the app as well. I am slightly obsessed with Poshmark due to the fact you can buy and sell used clothes instead of buying brand new and adding to the world of fast fashion. Here is a small breakdown of what I am getting rid of this go round and hopefully will add more to it before my lease is up in mid-March. I would love to be able to not move again so soon, but the rent on this apartment is a bit above what I am comfortable spending.
Jackets – 4
Hoodie – 1
Shirts – 11
Hat – 1
Purses – 3
Pajama pants – 1
Cardigans – 8
Miscellaneous (dishes, towels, etc.) – 37
Hangers – 45!!
Skirt hangers – 8
I am also trying to keep track of what I am spending money on during the week so I can see exactly where my money is going. I did find myself yesterday thinking about a new craft idea and had to talk myself out of going straight to Michaels to get the supplies I didn’t already have!
One of the other things I have been doing is to get out all the fabric I have collected over the years – I am a chronic shopper of the clearance bins – and to cut it up to hopefully finish the quilts I have started, but never finished. Here are two quilts I am hoping to finish:
Check out my Poshmark site! I am also hoping to upload some of my art onto Etsy so I will keep you updated on that area of unloading my belongings.
