Minimalism 2 Month Journey

Minimalism 2 Month Journey

This is the recap of our minimalism 2-month journey.  We have been minimizing for 2 months now!  I have gone through our entire house and I think we are at a good stopping point. 

I am no longer sorting through everything, but now I am waiting to see what we use and what we don’t. 

If there are more items that we don’t use as time goes on I will get rid of them.

Changes with Minimalism

One interesting thing I did last month is I didn’t buy anything except food and essential items.  My goal was to only buy food and pay our bills. 

I was very excited when my credit card bill came and it was over 300 dollars less than normal!

This month I am going to do the same, I am only going to buy food and pay our bills.  I plan to do this for as long as I can and see how it goes.  It will be interesting to see if I can save even more money next month.

Another thing I have done is I have stopped watching TV. 

I might watch about 30 minutes of news once in a while, but overall I have just stopped watching.  I have also stopped having the kids watch TV.

It was getting out of control and I noticed that TV was negatively affecting my son.  So now he barely ever watches TV anymore and I have seen a huge improvement in the way he acts.

Because I don’t watch TV I have a lot of time to get things done. 

In the last few months, I have read about 7 books!  I love reading and I can’t believe I was wasting so much time watching mindless crap on TV.

When we lived in NZ we didn’t have cable and we only had 3 channels so it was really easy for me to stop watching ( I knew I would be fine).  Grant has even stopped watching so much TV and now in the evenings he often goes to our community gym.

Just in the last few days, I have taken a social media break, but I will be back.
