I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be,
but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.

Adventures in Minimalism 1/18/18

Winter cleaning and organizing is underway.
Here are a few things I've done over the last six weeks:

I tackled the kitchen junk drawer.
Photo 1: everything out and on the stove.
Photo 2: a drawer that's "Tuff & Tidy". :-)

I cleaned and organized my largest closet.

The hangers are turned backward to show myself what I'm wearing
throughout the year. What isn't touched in 11 months will be donated.
I own way too many dollar store shirts, but I do seem to wear them!
That's a huge pillow on the shelf. It says so right there on the package.
Except it's not. Wal-Mart is a capitalist realm of lies and deceit.
(See you soon, anyhow, Wally World. Whether I like it or not.)

Welcome to my basic white girl bathroom.
Someday, I'll have matching towels. But not today.
Today, I just need my entire world to be made out of that squishy bath mat.
(The bathroom closet is currently in progress. I'll post a pic of it someday.)

I made a pillow for my butt.

I have owned this Care Bears fabric for over a decade.
I finally put it to use and covered a stack of foam squares.
It's duct taped underneath because I'm a loser who can't sew.

I sorted papers, which seems to be a never-ending task.

I've got a problem with paper. I can't seem to get rid of it.
I don't think I've reached hoarder status, but it's a minor flaw.
(As opposed to my major flaws, of which there are many.)
I seem to constantly find random bags and baskets filled with
various papers and I wonder how it happened, as if I have pesky
gremlins stashing paper around my apartment after midnight.
Alas, the gremlin is a prematurely-aging crazy lady with paper issues.
