Minimalism Video Tutorial: The Crafty Project I Never Started

Have you ever bought something based on a "I'm going to take this ____ and _______ with it?"  Yeah, me too.  In an eternal effort to reach my minimalism nirvana, I'm getting rid of the hard stuff. In this Minimalism tutorial, the 6th in a series, I explain why it was so hard to let go of these cool hanging vases, but did it anyway. Watch the video below.

Minimalism Video Tutorial: The Spinning Shoes From My Past

Admit it: you still have workout clothes from a sport you haven't done in years, thinking you might get back into in someday maybe…. I did too.  In this minimalism series video, I get rid of my spinning shoes that I wore about 3x/week for a decade, but haven't worn in 3 years now (I'm strictly yoga these days).  I had to admit that this part of my life is over - at least for now.  No biggie.  Moving on.  Watch the video below and please leave a comment if you too will donate a sporty something from your past!

Minimalism Video Tutorial 5: The Gorgeous Gift I Don't Use

Do you feel like a total jerk when contemplating something that was gifted to you?  I used to (and still do sometimes) but just like everything else that entered our lives, gifts don't have to hang around forever.  Click play to watch my reasons for donating a very beautiful gift that just outwore its welcome:

Minimalism Video Tutorial 4: The Sentimental Sweater

Do you have anything in your home or closet that is wrapped in warm memories, and you keep telling yourself you'll use or wear it again, but never do?

So did I. Watch my new video on why I held on to a cozy old sweater with good memories and why I decided to let it go:

Every fall for at least 10 years I've pulled it out of the winter box thinking - I should wear this this winter - but never ever have.

If I can let go of my sweater, what can you let go of?  Share in the comments!

Minimalism Video Tutorial 1: The Black & White Dress

Just because I'm an organizer doesn't mean that I also don't have to work hard at staying organized, or more specifically: minimal.  I've got the one thing in, one thing out rule down pat.  I only own a handful of pens and pencils and I'm practically paperless.  I want a home though that isn't just neat, but looks like the whitewashed, sparse, organic heaven that I see in design blogs.

I don't just want to walk the walk.  I want my home to be a shrine to it.  In order to achieve minimalism Nirvana, I've got to keep digging, which means taking a look at the things I love that I haven't used in years.  This is going to take discipline.  I'm down to the hard stuff.

I've started a series of minimalism tutorial videos, walking you though each item I'm parting with. You'll learn why I held onto it for so long and why I'm finally able to let it go.  My hope is that it inspires you to do the same!  New videos will be posted weekly, so subscribe to my YouTube channel to catch them all (use the link below the video).
