Hi friends! How’s it going? For a few weeks now I have been doing a minimalist practice I learned online. It’s about keeping a minimalist basket in my room where I can put things I no longer need or notice that I don’t love as much anymore. I was trying to figure out where I got this concept from because I follow so many amazing bloggers and creatives who share about minimalism. If the concept of a minimalist basket rings any bells please feel free to share so that I can credit it to the person.
Before I got my actual basket I was using old boxes to declutter the majority of my stuff. Now that I feel like I only have my essentials I thought it was safe to get a small basket from Walmart for those little things that make their way into the ‘not needed’ category. Since I got it I have put in two tunic tops that I thought I loved but I was looking at myself in the mirror and realized I don’t feel very beautiful wearing them, which is my criteria for wether to keep clothing or not. So far this method has helped me to declutter a lot of clothes I thought I needed.
At the moment I think I will only be ’emptying’ (donate) the contents of my basket at the end of each month since I don’t have that much stuff left to declutter anymore. Now that I feel content with my wardrobe and everything inside it I also don’t feel the need to shop anymore. And I think having my basket is also a reminder that instead of looking at more stuff to buy (which has now become rare) I should rather to look at stuff to donate or give away.
Again I just wanted to mention if you’ve heard the concept of a minimalist basket please let me know where you heard it from (apart from me). Also would you be open to getting one for yourself? How does the concept of having a minimalist basket sound to you? Please feel free to share, your thoughts are always welcome here. Thank you for reading and see you in my next post!
