Favorite Minimalist Products?
It seems like a contradiction in terms, I know.
But I've been going through our belongings, tossing the junk and trying to replace it with things that will last, are light and portable, and can be used for multiple purposes.
For example, instead of huge bags of disposable pads and tampons, I have my menstrual cup and a few cloth liners. Takes up much less room, better quality, more comfortable, and better for the environment.
I used to be unable to leave the house without my phone, mp3 player (I get panic attacks, music helps me breath), a note pad with grocery and to do lists, and a paperback book to read. My iphone replaces all of these things, as well as being a camera and having internet activity, so I can leave my laptop at home unless we'll be somewhere more than a few days.
I'd love to get such things as one of the portable high chairs that clips onto a table, and I am soooo in love with this:
kitchen set. I only wish it weren't over $200!
What do you have/use/want in your minimalist journey?
The time has come, my online friends, to talk of many things:
Of flats, and wool, and all in ones - of breastfeeding and slings-
And why our bed is cramped at night,
and the joy my children bring!
