Minimalism Video Tutorial: The Beloved Batik Shirt

Do you have any relics from your past hanging in your closet? I did. To me, it was absolutely more a relic than a garment. I loved the fabric more than the cut or style. I even used it to painstakingly craft a decoupaged gift for my best friend once. Was that reason for keep it for over a decade? Yes. Was that reason to keep it forever? No. This is one of the hardest things I've let go of in this video series. Watch the video below to see if you can relate. Have a similar item lurking in your home? Loved it, used it well, but ready to let it go? Please watch and share in the comments! Click here to watch the entire series!

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!

This vintage shearling coat is absolutely one of my favorite pieces of clothing. Too bad it never fit and gives me claustrophobia attacks every time I wear it. 10 years later, we're finally parting ways.
