So, it's been almost 3 weeks since I started my project to wear only 33 items of clothing/shoes/accessories for 3 months. It is fun. Weirdly, I actually mean that. It leaves me space to think about interesting things rather than, well, laundry or ironing or mending things. I HAVE to iron things and wash them and mend them, or I run out of things to wear. It is good for me.

The one thing that I'm finding difficult is jewellery. I love the things I chose (two necklaces and two pairs of earrings), but I have some other things that I also love that I would like to be able to wear. I am going to stick to it for this three months, but I might vary the rule for the next three-month period so I can have maybe 30 items excluding jewellery, and wear whatever necklaces/earrings/bracelets I like.

I'm still pensive about the rest of my minimalism project. The idea (via [livejournal.com profile] xugglybug and [livejournal.com profile] dennyd) of cataloguing my books really appeals to me, because anything where I can't be bothered to scan the isbn in is probably not something I should keep. It will be a long project though. And I don't want to get rid of books as such, I just want to get rid of the ones I don't like or use. (Weirdly, yes, there are some.)

Short version - I am enjoying it!

Longer version )

It's encouraging me to try minimalism in other parts of my life. This will be an exciting journey.
