For my second part of decluttering, I want to clarify that all this time I’ve been doing it wrong. For the entire time, I thought minimalism is about getting rid of things – which apparently is not. It’s making space for what’s important and valuable. It’s making more space for less. Although I can’t honestly say that I’m actually trying to have a minimalist lifestyle because… I’ve never been materialistic to begin with. So I guess I’m just decluttering my things while maintaining my already simple lifestyle.

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.
