    Are there any other minimalist littles? Are there any things that are difficult to keep to a minimum in little space? (Stuffies, blankets, etc)

    hi! i'm a minimalist! 

    i find that the most difficult thing is stuffed animals & food stuffs (things like silverware, dishes, cups.)

    the best way that i keep on top of this is donating stuffed animals regularly to littles in need 

    & going through my silverware to get rid of cups that are faded/silverware where you can't see the pictures.

     

    i try to do this sort of clean up at least once a month.

    Minimalist is something i try. My daddy totally is without a doubt. He owns 1 pair of shoes, 1 pair of jeans and a few shirts. Thats what im shooting for. Stuffies and blankets are definitely hard to keep to a minimum. I have like 5 or 6 blankets and a bunch of stuffies. I do have to say that i made it clear to myself that i wouldn't want any more stuffies and gave away a couple and have not bought new ones in 3 years. Right now i only sleep with my Daddy stuffie which he gave me a few years ago as an anniversary that looks lile him and thats the only stuffie i sleep with now. Clearing your space from clutter is good for the mind

    I'm heading that way myself. Unfortunately, no matter how much I say I don't want new random junk I keep getting stuff I don't ask for from my parents. And there's all the stuff I've accumulated over years, mostly gifts.

     

    But every year I get rid of more things. I donated so many things from boxes under my bed last year, including 20 bouncy balls and at least 50 bookmarks. As a kid I had saved everything I ever got from party bags from various classmates' birthday parties. I had a tin full of erasers. :lol:

     

    Nowadays my little self is more focused on imagination, joyfulness, and other non tangible things. I was never much for buying stuff (almost all of my junk were gifts (I have some family members who didn't grow up with a lot themselves I I think they made up for it by buying the children of the family tons of toys/plastic jewelry/clothes/etc))

     

    One day I will win this battle! :D I will be happy with a big empty space I can dance in!

    Children don't worry what they look like to others. They are 100% themselves. When we get older, we learn to fit in society by submerging those parts of ourselves that our culture looks down on. We don't want to be rejected by our parents. We don't want to be rejected by our peers. Growing up may include re-embracing ourselves even if we must stand alone.

     

    Thank you for being here as I re-embrace the Self I'm meant to be.

    Interesting topic. I don't think I'd call myself a minimalist but I follow a lot of advice on going towards zero waste.

    But regarding having stuff, I can't deny that I'm more of a collector (at least regarding certain things like e.g. books or stuffies). And even if I may think "You don't need a little fairy figurine" when I'm in a shop and want to buy something there's no denying that I get a flood of happy memories and feelings when I look at most of my dust catchers and I think that's a good reason to keep them around. ^_^

    Edit: Stuffies are definitely hard because I get super attached to all of them. But I managed to donate a box of mine for a charity last year (my little side was a bit shocked after I went through with it. I honestly had a hard time when I went into my little space afterwards). Another thing that's hard for me is art supplies. And I love stuff like "Hatchimals Colleggtibles" even though rationally speaking those are pretty pointless. But I actually do play with them after I hatch them and I guess there are worse guilty pleasures I could have.

    Be careful with your words. They can only be forgiven not forgotten.

    Hiya! 

     

    I wouldn't say that I'm a minimalist but I try not to buy or collect random things I don't need. Daddy's been helping me a lot in not collecting stuff, especially since we are living together in a small studio apartment and don't have much room for stuff. I recently escaped a bad situation so I had to leave my home with all the stuff that could fit in my car, so I had to part with a bunch of stuff.

     

    On the little side, I don't think I have many stuffies, though it might seem like a lot to others. I have 6 regular sized stuffies and 2 small ones. I had a giant 4 foot elephant stuffie that I had to leave at home. I do struggle with sippy cups and bottles, but I am going to give away the few that I don't use. 

     

    Again, I can't really call myself a minimalist but I do try to keep my collection on the smaller size since me and my Daddy don't have a lot of room at the moment.

     

    Thanks for reading!

    I'm trying to be more so! So much extra stuff makes me lost and depressed because I dont know where to start or what to do. I have been donating lots to charity and it really feels good... and if I get rid of a few bags I'll let myself have a little treat for a reward.
