Weekend Update

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! Saturday my husband and I went out to see our parents. I helped my Mom with sorting and organizing her small bookcases. We dusted, sorted, and rummaged through books that had been double stacked on the shelves. One of the shelves in the back had ventured downward and my Mom thought it to be broken, but thankfully it turned out that the […]

Minimalism Series Part 5: My 100ish Things

This list here might seem like a lot to some or not much to others, but for me for right now it is just the right amount. Every item I currently have sparks joy and makes me happy to have it. I may purge out more in the future when/if a piece no longer suits me or whatever, but it feels a lot nicer to open my dresser or my […]

April is National Poetry Month!

April 27 is Carry A Poem in Your Pocket Day. Once I finish up with The Sunshine Sisters (Keep an eye out for the review soon) I will be reading: “The Poetry of Impermanence, Mindfulness, and Joy” Edited by John Brehm. A book of poetry is part of my Sunshine Rising 2017 book challenges and so I am exited that there is an entire month devoted to poetry! I will […]

My Book Shelf: The 30 books I own(!)

The following are the only books that I own physical copies of.  All the rest of them were either sold or donated to charities when I started to become minimalist. It took a couple years to get here. I owned well over 1,000 books(!) at one point and slowly whittled them down to the copies listed below. My hubby on the other hand likes to have physical copies of books; […]

Minimalism Series Part 4: Freebies

Before we got ready for our sideways move: which was simply to a different apartment in the same city to be closer to downtown so hubby could walk/bike to work, we did another purge. Since then we have gotten out and explored more of the city. Bike rides, jogging, and walking have been our new exercise loves. Attending local events and the farmers’ markets on weekends to eat healthier, along […]

Minimalist Series Part 3: Misc & Photo Albums

Now for the “komono” portion(which is the miscellaneous stuff that just sort of happens to appear in peoples’ houses. This is anything from batteries to paperclips to any collections etc.) and we donated THREE VANS worth of stuff before the van transmission starting having issues. Holy crap. We donated until our van died and then we got rid of that! 😉 The first part of our komono I worked on […]

Minimalism Series Part 2: Books, Books, So Many Books + More

The second step in “tidying” involved sorting through your books one by one. Picking up each individual book and truly asking yourself if it brings you joy. I, as most of you know, am a HUGE book worm and LOVE books. I have one big bookcase and two smaller ones…but now they feature books along with other things too. One is in my closet for random things and one is […]

Minimalism Series Part 1: Intro & Clothing

In 2015 I started my minimalism journey and I wanted to include some things about that quest to now two years later. When I first began I was inspired by the KonMarie method and so I followed her laid out plan to declutter.   I started with clothes as recommended, then went onto books (which I will post more about of course since this IS a book site afterall) and […]

Weekend Update: Thrift Finds!

My thrift finds of the day included a Charmed board game ($1.99), an Alice in Wonderland DVD ($2.99) and three books I can’t wait to read! (“Still Alice” by Alice Hoffman,  “Anna Karenina” by Leo Tolstoy and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosky each only $1.50!!!) I will admit, I love thrifting. I enjoy finding things that I can enjoy and then pass along to someone else […]
