Do I Need To Downsize My Life?

downsize my life

So I am sitting here at what is basically 2am in the morning trying to figure out how to downsize my life. I try to keep a clean rooms clean. I try to put things back in their place and not let things pile up on me, but here I am feeling like I am overcrowded and the walls are caving in.

My room looks a mess, and no matter how much I clean the mess comes back the next day. Now I am looking at the Phillip Lim for Target bag that I own that looks just like the Celine bag in the photo. It is so small and I want to carry it, but I haven’t yet because I had carried huge bags for years. I am tired of carrying huge bags though.

I’m currently perusing Target’s website to find the smallest wallet I can find. I feel like buying a tiny or at least a smaller one will force me to start carrying a smaller bag, which will in turn help me downsize my life. Since I am moving at the end of this year, I feel like now is the time to plan my apartment with a minimalist point of view. Even though I have kitchen supplies already boxed up waiting for the day I move, I really am going to try and get back to my clean and minimalist living style.

I am starting with baby steps to get my life back on track. What are you doing to downsize your life? Photo found here.

    Where are you moving to?!

    As I’ve gotten older, I’ve definitely downsized my closet. In college since you’re broke you can’t help but buy fast fashions but I started noticing that season after season I was either tossing or donating bags of clothes thinking “This is so wasteful!” so now I try to buy not only less but more quality pieces that will survive more than a year and my closet has downsized because of this. It’s nice to be able to see all your clothes in your closet especially when it’s a tiny Manhattan closet!

      I’m moving to Charlotte and I feel ya. I don’t want to be wasteful.
