Let's get down to it.
The steps laid out by Cait in the epilogue of The Year of Less are as follows (grossly oversimplified by yours truly):
I think I nailed the sixth order of business, hmmmm?
One of my favorite aphorisms of Cait's is that "personal finance is personal" and so is this experiment. I won't be opening a new savings account for this six month sabbatical from spending or taking inventory of the items I own the most of. I am midway in my decluttering journey and no longer have large accumulations of crap I don't need or use. I do however have medium accumulations of crap I don't need so I will be beginning with step 1.
I won't be perfect at this. I will falter and fail and pick right up where I left off, and I will take you along for the ride as much as I possibly can.
Tomorrow's post will be a compilation of my starting points for aspiring minimalists along with a collection of "before" pics..
Thanks for being here, this should be fun.
Behind the dainty days is a whole lot of planning. And coffee.
