IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE TO DO???
For the past couple years, I’ve been transitioning our house to less stuff. I did the KonMari method several years back but am willing to step it up another notch.
It all begins with the parents and the kids will in turn come to their own decision what to do but when it comes to the main areas, that’s something I can keep clutter free.
With Eli’s birthday so close to Christmas, I was having a hard time trying to figure out what to get him. Then as I was watching the movie Minimalism, it dawned on me.
He really didn’t need or want anything tangible because he got what he wanted for Christmas so why not give him an experience.
When talking to him, we began brainstorming ideas of things that he, daddy and mommy could do together to get some one on one time AND do something memorable for his birthday.
He came up with some really cool things but what it made me mindful of is providing our children with more adventures and memories than things.
I’m not against buying things but I want more meaning in my life, more experiences, more travel and less things.
This book is my reading material for this week and I’m so excited to delve in and purge more stuff at the same time!
