Picture Overload =)
 
I think what makes me a minimalist is that I only keep what I use regularly. Also we live by the motto, "Living with less but only the best". That goes for toys, jewelry, personal care, hobbies ect. It does cost some more money up front but in the long run we like our things better and replace them less often. I follow one in and two out rule when I purchase. Some were saying they wanted to peek into cabinents so I included my kitchen cabinents and bathroom cabinets/medicine cabinets. I feel I am still a work in progress. Hubby still keeps alot of things and has many collections so he keeps most of that in the garage. :hugs: :goodvibes:

Besides that your lack of stuff is amazing I have to ask...Do you live in base housing somewhere? Your kitchen is an exact model of my old kitchen in base housing on Camp Pendleton.

Love the cleared off kitchen counters! I can never achieve this. We don't have enough cupboard space to hold all my "ingredients" so my counters are lined with large glass jars of stuff. :banghead:

That's impressive. How do you get by w/ so few clothes for your son. My daughter is 2.5 yrs old and she often needs extra clothing changes due to pee accidents, getting covered in food and paint at daycare, etc. BTW, where's the rest of your food?

I loved the kitchen too! Not all of the pictures are loading on my phone but I'm definitely logging in tonight on laptop to see the rest! Thanks for sharing.
