Post Buy Nothing New Year I am on a mission to minimize and organize. Keeping only that which is essential is my current M.O.  

When I started my BNN Year I became a bit of a hoarder, not a TLC worthy hoarder, but I began keeping things just in case I might need them later in the year. Now that my year is up and I have permission to buy whatever I want, I am realizing how much stuff/junk I have that I don’t need that is just taking up my precious space. One of the greatest things I learned from my year of consuming less, is how little I actually need. Having more stuff means more work; more to clean, more to maintain, more to fix, more to organize. I am on a mission to live more simply with less. I love following this blog for inspiration: Simplify Your Life

Stuff I don’t need that is still in good condition will either be given to people I know that might want it or dropped off at Goodwill. The rest will be headed to the trash or recycling. 

So far, minimizing has been a lot of work, but with each unnecessary thing I get rid of, I feel a little more liberated.
