My minimalistic goals

In a few days I am leaving this beautiful country and I am moving back to Germany.
Yes, I am sad and happy the same time.

Finally I am going to have my own flat where I can do whatever I want to! No more peaking around the corner if I forgot to bring my fresh clothes after a shower.
And this also means I can finally sort out my life with ALL my belongings.
Actually this already started three weeks ago when I went there for a weekend to sort out a lot of stuff. (Built an IKEA wardrobe and basically threw away 3 carloads of rubbish.)

My goals for the first week in my new home:

1. Sort out wardrobe and count the items i own. Make lists of: Need to get and need to throw away over time.
Now you are possibly thinking: what? She says “minimalistic” and “need to get” in the same post? Yes I do, because I still need some wardrobe basics.

2. Find an organisation for my digital stuff

3. Organise papers in different folders

4. Organise kitchen completely. Lists of need to get and throw away.

5. Make a nice study and work space.

6. Declutter bathroom.

7. Throw away beddings.
We got a lot of not matching beddings!

8. Declutter lounge “stuff”.
We got a lot of “stuff” for the lounge. Candles, decorations, and so on.

And of course I’m going to keep you updated how I am getting along with my decluttering!

 

The minimalists

I am writing this post shortly after I’ve finished watching the documentary from the minimalists.

I am emotional after watching that. I am sad, mad, happy and motivated. All at once.

To be fair I need to tell you something: I never watch television. When someone is watching it, I don’t have a problem with watching it with them. I don’t have a problem with going to the cinema with people.
I just literally can’t be bothered to turn the TV on.

But I did it tonight. And watched “minimalism: the documentary about the important things“.

I am speechless. I am speechless because of the truth that is thrown in your face by all the people who contributed to that film.

And believe me, I don’t like if someone is too sure about their beliefs. I think a small part of you should always question every step you take and analyse it. (Don’t get me wrong, overanalysing is horrible.)
With that I mean those people who come to you and think their beliefs are the healthiest, happyest and simply the best and you only think: ahh shut up, let’s talk about the weather.

And let me tell you one thing: these two guys from “the minimalists” are not like that at all.

All in all I really enjoyed watching the documentary and would recomment it to everyone.
