Joining for more inspiration, I noticed I've enjoyed decluttering since I relocated abroad for work, I'm kind of in between places so I felt the need to "travel light" all the time and have all my essentials with me in a suitcase lang ganyan na kasya na lahat, I avoided buying stuff that I don't need and will not utilize often. If by mistake/circumstance, I buy a particular piece of clothing and alam ko na di ko naman gusto, or di kasya, I immediately give it away, or itatabi ko para ipamigay sa Pinas. I can survive with 1 bag for work, 1 bag for parties, 1 bag for traveling and 1 luggage, I kid you not. ;D I also have 1 pair of work shoes, 1 pair of running shoes, 1 pair of flip flops, 1 pair of heels, 1 pair of flat sandals or slip on, I notice na kapag may sobra akong shoes or bag, hinde ko din naman nagagamit, nasasayangan ako so I just give it away, or bibili lang ako kapag masisira na yung gamit ko. I tend to have a decent amount of clothes naman since we do not have a uniform, and I work for 6 days a week. Pero in comparison with my Workmates, konti pa din yung sakin, in rotation lang talaga damit ko hehe maski yung pambakasyon ko sa Pinas. I am very comfortable with this lifestyle. Even sa room namin dito, and sa house sa Pinas I see to it that very basic lang ang gamit, mas madali maglinis, mas maaliwas at presko sa mata, tipid pa. I try to apply it maski sa kitchen, groceries, toiletries, make up and accessories.

ang minimalist living ba is the same as frugal living? lately, ang dami ko nakikita sa IG na mga accounts na about frugal living, most of them are based in the US. nakaka-inspire sila. alam ko there's a difference between the two pero ayoko naman gumawa ng bagong thread hehe.

^In my case, they go hand in hand. Minimalism makes me frugal na rin becasue I don't buy much. Halimbawa shoes, every two years lang yata ako bumibili. I don't feel deprived at all--wala happy ako kasi with what I have and I really enjoy my things until they fall apart.

Dati parang shopping was my hobby. Now as in it repulses me, so boring and napapagod ako. Hahaha! With minimalism I developed other hobbies that have nothing to do with shopping, like running and swimming, coloring books, learning how to cook, etc.

But frugal for me doesn't mean buying the cheapest things--I am interested in value, not price. So minsan kahit mahal pero ang tagal masira, I buy it--like cooking implements, etc.

Just last June, my daughter initiates clean up drive sa lahat ng gamit namin, since may Star city sila ng friends nila at as much as possible bawal humingi ng cash sa parents so naisip ng anak ko mag benta ng mga hindi ginamit at mag donate ng mga maliit na damit or hindi na ginagamit sobrang dami namin for donation, from toys, dress, kitchen and school stuff.

then all the things we have in our house are the one we need and important

Mas madali maglinis, maaliwalas, at nakapagpasaya pa ng ibang tao..
I am nobody.

Nobody is PERFECT.

Therefore, I am PERFECT!.

^ mas madali nga mag linis pag kunti lang gamit sa bahay

ako nga, iisipin ko palang maglinis or organize na-sstress na ko  ;D  ang hirap lang talaga mag let go ng ibang gamit. minsan pa, akala ko wala na kong certain na gamit, mapapabili ako tapos makikita ko meron pa pala ako nun. ayan tuloy dumo doble.

Nagstart na ulit ako magtapon yung iba idodonate namin, grabe nakakagulo ng isip pag masyadong maraming gamit na nakatengga lang. Siguro not as sobrang minimalist, kasi ititira namin yung magagamit naman. Ang sarap lang sa feeling na malinis ang bahay at maayos. Madali makita yung mga gamit tsaka oara hindi na stressful magligpit kasi may bata na.
We don't need more laws, we need implementation.

Nice topic mga sis. :) Dream ko din to, someday to just have the exact amount of stuff for my needs.

Andami ko kasing kalat. I used to be a hoarder. I have donated several times na pero ang kalat pa din.

Watching KDrama inspires me also to organize my stuff pati indoor plants meron na rin ako 😊. I stopped collecting accessories and shoes ko pang everyday gamit na lang and one piece for every occasion.
bawal ang negative vibes. ♥♥♥

I practice this. Ayoko kasi madaming gamit sa bahay. Only things that can be used or are needed lang. Kaya maaliwalas ang bahay, madaling magligpit at linisin.
I have seen houses na ang liit na nga ng living space ang hilig pa magkolekta ng mga kung ano-ano ang mga taong nakatira doon. Nakakalatan, naguguluhan at nasisikipan talaga ako tignan.

Among our family, yung asawa ko ang ganyan but i try to minimize it. Kahit papaano nabawasan na ang ganung tendency nya. And as early as now, tinuturuan ko mga anak ko about that.

Every school break, pinapabawas ko ng mga unnecessary stuffs collected over a period of time ang mga anak ko (mga papel papel, dried up slimes etc)

Every end of school year naman, they go through their clothes para ipamigay na yung mga maliliit at hindi na kasya. And i tell them they have to do that so we will know how many at ano ang mga kailangan bilhin.

Hopefully ma-instill din sa mga anak ko yang minimalist living.

Pahabol:
If there is one pala gusto ko bumili just for the sake of it...plates, dinnerware set. Esp if magandang style at design.
One time i was thinking of buying another set, then my bunso asked me, ?Do we really need more plates??  Toinks! ?Hmmm no, not really? sabay alis agad sa section na yun. Lol

pansin ko lang ,since nag start ako sa ecobrick system, parang ang konti na ng tinatapon kong basura.

eco brick eto yung, iipunin mo lahat ng basura mo, foil, plastic then gugupitin mo sya into pieces then ilalagay mo sa empty soda bottles..

naging habbit ko na yun after eating, lagay sa timba lahat ng foil, plastic, sinasabon ko then pag natuyo saka ko gugupitin, magandang pang tanggal ng stress ang pag gugunting.. hehe

Since I started watching penelopepopart, I got inspired to also adopt a minimalist fashion lifestyle. I have always liked minimalist interior in homes, but, I have a problem with not shopping.  ;D  So I regularly give away items when I buy new ones so I don't crowd my home with stuff. Unfortunately, for clothes, I shop at least once a week so even if I give away my clothes every quarter, there's always a lot. When I watched penelope's vlogs, she made me realize I can't say I care for the environment if I keep buying fast fashion items which will eventually contribute to the earth's waste. I stopped myself from buying clothes if they're not "basic looking" (those that do not go out of fashion). Surprisingly, after abstaining from shopping for a few weeks, I found it easier to not buy stuff even when I'm inside the mall.

Di pa din ako minimalist, on my way pa lang, pero sanay na kong hindi bumili ng basta basta and ng kung ano ano lang. :) Minsan asa market ako, bibili ako ng garlic, naalala ko may garlic pa sa bahay, naisip ko ano ba yan, pati garlic iho-hoard ko. :D

I opened an online shop dun ko binebenta mga preloved ko. When is started ang dami kong binebenta umabot agad ng 1000 followers ko in less than 3months. I was decluttering my place, then habang lumuluwag yung place ko parang nagiging mas aware na ako sa clutter.

Ngayon i only buy what i need. Pag hindi ko need pinipigilan ko talaga sarili ko. I pick good quality ones kahit medyo mahal basta good quality para it prevents me from buying a lot of the same thing.

Main reason ko din is the environment. If we stop buying what we don?t need mas kumokonti ang trash and also pinapayaman lang natin ang mga capitalist while tayo lalong naghihirap.

magawa nga toh, feeling ko ma eenjoy ko rin mag gupit  ;D nag eenjoy kasi ako magwrap ganyan  ;D

isa ko rin problema, husband ko rin hilig mag collect as in. minsan asar na asar na ko pero wala rin naman ako magawa dahil hilig niya magcollect. kailangan na mag declutter ngayon palang bago mag new year   ;D

bumili ko ng manual paper cutter sa lazada P450 including delivery fee, para less work pero need mo pa rin guntingin into smaller piece.. nag eenjoy naman ako sa pag gupit hahaha

ang isang realization ko, yung equivalent ng 'bulk' foil basura pala pag ginupit, matagal bago mapuno yung isang medium size plastic bag.. 

gawin mo talaga, sis, ang pansin ko lang, simula nung ginawa ko yan, naging less na yung tinatapon kong basura.. 

isa pang nakuhang kong tip, sa papel naman, gagawin ko syang pataba ng lupa, pwede pala yung, basta ibabad mo lang tubig basta gupit lang ng malilit then halo sa tubig..

'para sa iyo, mother earth.. :D'

Part of our minimalist living lifestyle eh buying membership to museums, art gallery, park/attractions, ski resorts. It?s not cheap but our daughter loves it. It skips the hoarding of toys.
