One Monday, I was sitting on our bed, cherishing my beloved “off day” when I came across this video on Facebook. It was a quick documentary on this woman’s attempt to live like a minimalist for a week. I don’t know if it was experimental (for work, since she works at Buzzfeed) or it was her own initiative. Regardless, it struck a chord.
I realized I could do the exact same thing. I could declutter (boy did I have LOTS of unnecessary stuff lying around), pick out the stuff I actually use, and donate the rest I don’t. In the video, they highlighted that living minimally doesn’t have to be extreme and it doesn’t have a set of rules. Do what applies to you. So I thought of a group of items I always have around but don’t use.
I had answers in a matter of seconds. But I focused on this one: MAKEUP.
