I have been aware of the minimalist lifestyle for a couple of years now. I’ve read blogs and printed out checklists specific to minimizing stuff but I’ve never read any actual books on the subject, like The Magic of Tidying Up for example. However, even though I purge often and attempt to keep things to a minimum, I still feel this constant distraction of what’s important in my life and what my priorities should be. Stuff still quickly piles up everywhere and then the feeling of we need bigger and better things starts to take over. I’m still in a battle of worldly things. Recently, I have had the desire to look deeper into minimalism. This led to the discovery of the book Not of this World: A Catholic Guide to Minimalism by Sterling Jaquith and thought this would be the perfect book for me to read. There just happens to be a Catholic Minimalism Challenge that is actively going on as well. For those interested, check out the website to sign up and learn more about it. I will be participating in this challenge and everyone (even the kids) will be involved. I love purging and I am very excited and eager to read this book and start making purposeful progress with my home.
Over the next few weeks, as I venture this journey, I will be posting my progress. The good, bad, and ugly. Be sure to also follow me on Instagram to see how we will be progressing. First week is the master bedroom.
