Here is my first go at it.
I worked in my closet and I was able to go from this:
and I got rid of these:
Three shelves -- that's it. It's not too impressive until you look at the pile of stuff that's heading to the women's ministry thrift store. If I can get rid of that much stuff every time I declutter, I can make amazing progress this year.
Now, I realize that if a TRUE minimalist was reading this, there would be rolling eyes and a shaking head right now. But, hey! I'm making progress. And that's what counts. It may take me a couple of passes through every area [ok, maybe 3 or 4] before I achieve minimalist status, but at least I'm heading in the right direction, which is more than I was doing a month ago.
In reality, I don't think I'll ever get to the "only owning one skirt and two pairs of jeans" kind of minimalism. Where's the fun in that?
