I can say that I am a quite a hoarder.  Looking at articles about minimalism makes me thing that maybe it's time to lessen and give away things I don't use.

Anyone has tips on how to start? to be honest thinking about it gives me a bit of anxiety since I am emotionally attached to most of the items I have.

Baby steps. Don't buy anything you don't need.  If you haven't used an item within a year, dispose of it.  You'll probably not use it anymore.  Like the others, start with a drawer, then move on to your table, etc.  You can do it :)

That's the thing, I always thing what if I will need it. Sometimes, I think I am a lost case.
But, I am thinking to sort my closet before the year ends.

^try reading Goodbye Things by Fumio Sasaki. It might change your mind set regarding the "just in case" things. ;)

^Thanks for the suggestion.   Nakakaengganyo talaga ang maaliwalas na bahay.  This weekend, I hope to start cleaning and sorting out our closet.  Nakakapanghina at nakakatamad kumilos kasi sobrang init ng panahon.  At least ngayong medyo umuulan-ulan na, medyo malamig na at hindi na nakaka-alibadbad kumilos

Ang hirap maging minimalist, may napanood akong video about minimalist, nagtry ako and there's one thing I noticed na di ko namalayan, ganun na pala ako. Nakakaipon na pala ako ng Notebooks na di ko pa nagagamit, I am so obsessed pala sa notebooks, di ko tuloy malaman kung hoarder na ba yun pero may limit naman ako. So far, ang halos laman ng kwarto ko ay puro Notebook, kaya hirap na hirap ako mag bawas ng gamit, feeling ko lahat sila very important sa akin :P

True! Ang hirap maging minimalist,  lalo na pag maraming sale hehe... sobrang daming temptations pero I try to rein myself na rin na kung hindi naman kailangan or kung pwede pa naman kung ano ang meron pa eh huwag na munang bumili.

I am trying to dispose things slowly dahil kulang ang aking weekend kung gagawin ko ang KonMari method.

Sa sisses natin with kids, where and how to start?

I have 2 toddlers, 2 and 4.  Ang hirap ata maging minimalist when you have to change their clothes more than 5 times a day and laundry is twice a week only. And disposable diapers everywhere. Honestly, nagu guilty ako sa disposable diapers but I dont have a yaya and hubby and I both work full time. So no time for other things.

I started practicing minimalism since we transferred to a new home. I purged 50% of our things. Super nakakagaan ng feeling kapag walang clutter. I got inspired by The Minimalists and Mari Kondo videos. We're a family of 3 plus 1 helper. My daughter is turning 1. What I'm doing is that, mga nalakihan niyang things/clothes, I donate or sell. That's it. I'm not a hoarder kaya hindi mahirap sa akin to part ways with things that I no longer use. Hindi ko iniisip yung 'just in case'. Like magtatabi ng mga ganitong stuff 'just in case'.
