^Correct! Ang primary mindset ko noon is tumigil sa pagbili. Period. Hehe. The only thing I bought was yung parang accordion envelope for our important documents. We used to have a filing cabinet at home. Ngayon, envelope na lang sya.

I wouldn't consider myself really minimalist. But I am trying to modify the way I do things. I don't want clutter in my life anymore. This is why I stopped going to sales because I end up buying stuff I wear once only.  I try to buy only quality items but only a few pieces. When I travel I never buy souvenirs. Heck, I don't even want a Christmas tree in my house because it is a storage nightmare!

BUT here's my problem. I am a bit sentimental. For instance, can't bring myself to sell my wedding gown or give away my kid's baby cute baby clothes. Being minimalist is a lifestyle and it is really takes an effort.

I BECAME super serious about trying to be minimalist when I married my husband. I discovered my MIL is a HOARDER and grabe lang the feeling when you enter her room. Sobrang depressing to go to her room because of her hoarding habits.

I can't live being a minimalist, mahirap, declutter na nga lang nahihirapan na ako. Files pa lang sa cabinet kailangan isa isahin. I'm slowly starting in my closet, ngayon na nag gain weight ako I have to get rid of a ton of clothes, may iba ayoko ko pang i give up. Pero I usually think 5 times na ngayon before buying more stuff :D

My family and bf can never be minimalists, LOL. They always tell me na nagsasayang daw ako ng gamit by throwing them away when it can still be used in the future, o kaya someday they will not sell these items na raw and I will regret getting rid of them, or maganda pa naman daw, let's keep it! I see their point naman, pero kung ganyan din eh I think you have to be really organized and creative on how you store these extra stuff, which sadly they're not. Okay lang daw sa kanila to live in a medyo cluttered home, haha. To each his own talaga.

Minimalism can also help you save money in the long run. Lots of times, we buy things because we want it not because we really need it.

^sis try to search sa iba thread. but you can get ideas here

Anyway, I started when I watched the 2 guys: The Minimalists on netflix.
FIrst i declutter my desk tapos, I declutter my social media. It is not just about material things pero kasama na dito ang connections and relationships. Also, ideas.

Sa house naman, I try to declutter lagi every Sunday I clean closet and other parts of our small apartment and make sure to find things to throw kahit 2 garbage bags. feeling ko ang gaang ng house. We are moving next year. Minimalist lang rin pinatayo namin na house. Small space lang parang nasa docu ng The minimalist. Small space na up and down. I think it is a great opportunity to practice more minimalism.

I find inner peace dahil sa minimalism. :) I hope all sisses here  do too...one step at a time.

^agree ako about decluttering social media relationships. I unfriended people whose posts stress me out. ngayon ang nakikita ko na lang are posts that make me smile or make me think--mga constructive ideas, hindi puro nega at bashing.

Project ko to since last year and i always watch sa youtube for motivation. Napansin ko kasi madali akong ma stress pag maraming gamit sa bahay specially mga unused ones, pati mga damit ko nagbawas talaga ko and ang laking relief sa mind ko. I can focus more sa work ko and mas madaming time to chill kasi konti nalang lilinisin ko.

I save ngayon to get furnitures para mas maayos yung gamit. Pero super rare nakong bumili ng mga stuff na na-cutean lang ako and things na di functional sa bahay.

ako may 2 empty boxes dun ko nilalagay lahat ng di na useful sa amin,
1 box for clothes/shoes and 1 box naman sa mga ibang items..
kaya pag naglinis, lagay na lang ng lagay sa box then pag napuno na either ipamigay ko na or papakuha ko na sa caritas manila.

ang sarap gumalaw sa bahay na di crowded, cluttered..
especially pag maliit lang ang space mo..

and also no to events souvenir like sa binyag, wedding etc..
no to abubot talaga.. para iwas alikabok na rin

Napanood ko din yun documentary about minimalism sa Netflix, sobrang naka relate ako. I really wanted a home na hindi masyado madami ang gamit  para hindi ubos oras kapag maglilinis.  Gusto ko yun maaliwalas tignan yun paligid. Kaso gustuhin ko man magbawas ng mga gamit sa amin , yun mom ko  ayaw sayang daw kasi. Ang hilig mag ipon ng kung ano-ano, bumili ng mga hindi naman kailangan, mga damit na nakatambak lang sa bahay, mga appliances na hindi ginagamet. Kung ako lang masusunod lahat ng mga iyon pamimigay ko or ibebenta na lang. Akong nahihirapan sa mom ko walang katapusan linis at ayos ang ginagawa niya, paulit ulit na lang ganun.

Hi mga sis yung Caritas ba kahit anong items pwedeng idonate? Like books, toys, gamit sa kusina, etc.

Try ko na rin ang magpa-pick up... Kaya lang taga Pasig ako, sa Pandacan pa yata sila manggagaling...

This is what I'm trying to do since last year. Inumpisahan ko sa mga reviewers/resibo/payslip at anik anik waaaaaaay back 2000 pa na nakatambak sa drawer ko. Kako ipatimbang sa junk shop at maging pera.

Then sa mga damit, sapatos at bag, pina-ukay ko yung mga talagang di ko na magagamit, pagkakitaan ko na lang :D

Ang mahirap lang e pagdating sa parents ko...sila ang mahilig magbibibili ng kung ano ano. Mga sale na hindi naman kailangan. Ang nanay ko lagi sinasabi wala na sya maisuot e sa 2 cabinets (tag 6-dr) nila sa kwarto nila sa baba, halos kanya lahat ng damit. Tas [textspeak!] kwarto din nila sa taas, halos kanya pa din ang mga damit. Ako ang sobrang nauumay sa dami ng damit nya. Tatay ko naman ang mahilig sa mga abubot.

Yung kusina namin, sangkaterba ang kaldero at kawali, sangkatutak na platong antigo na, pati mga tupperware andami din. Ayaw pang igive up kasi sayang daw...Aanhin naman napakaraming ganyan, e 3 lang naman kami sa bahay. Kakaloka.

Kaya kahit papano sa kwarto ko man lang e walang masyadong clutter.

Kako pag nagka-bahay ako ng sarili ko, minimalist talaga gagawin ko. Nahihilo ako sa maraming abubot.
Life's a beach....Enjoy!!!

Yung mga ganito di ko kaya itapon or ibenta. Actually inaabangan ko mga antique plates and glasses ng grandma ko. Nakalagay sa cabinet ang gaganda.

Goal ko din ito.  Nasa bahay lang ako for the past month because of maternity leave so nagka-time ako maghalugkat.

Andami naming vcd and dvd players na di ko alam if gumagana pa. And also mga hard drive na korteng rewinder ng betamax tape dati. At mga cds and dvds na kung ano2x. And so much more.  Junk lahat.
I don't need easy. I just need possible.

i'm trying to be more minimalist din. i just got rid of 2/3 of my entire wardrobe and ang sarap ng feeling. i haven't read marie kondo but i used joy as a deciding factor on whether or not i should keep something.  ;D i also haven't shopped for new clothes in nearly a year now.

what i really want is a curated wardrobe: basics and items in classic silhouettes. essential jewelry & accessories. i no longer do trends because hindi na rin naman bagay.
