On today’s episode, we’re talking about the one casualty of minimalism that I’ve cried over, chocolate chip cookies for breakfast, and how hard it really is to downsize.
We’re emerging from the piles + piles that we’ve been sorting for the Great Downsize to chat about how we’re systematically getting rid of all our excess stuff. The bright side? It makes moving way easier. Here’s what we covered:
What is your greatest fear when you think of downsizing or embracing minimalism?
Do you hold onto things for “someday?”
How do you decide what to keep + what to toss? What brings you joy? What adds value? How replaceable it may be?
Do you + your partner have differing decluttering styles? How do you navigate that?
How do you handle the guilt of decluttering? By donating, changing your purchasing decisions?
What made you feel loved today?
