Re: anyone have before and after pics of how they've gone minimal?

No pics here, I'm lame. I love seeing everyone pics though. I just take it piece by piece. Toys, kitchen cupboards, dresser, file cabinet...Work on one thing at a time. It'll feel so good you'll keep wanting to do more lol. Actually I ended up going back through things I already did and downsizing more and more.
There is a thread with pics but I'd like to see before and after.

Re: anyone have before and after pics of how they've gone minimal?

I don't have any pics of "before," because I've been at this a while, but here are some "after" pics :-) I even have some of my "minimalist garden"

Re: anyone have before and after pics of how they've gone minimal?

For PP who said they are embarrassed well my apartment is not lovely but I don't care. People can judge all they want. We live here because we can afford it and that is good enough for me.

I am in progress so they are not true before after pics but they are before and in progress pictures of my living and dining room. I will try to get pictures of my master bedroom later but DD is sleeping in there right now.

OK I just realized these are completely not right UGH. Ok the top 3 sets the in progress is on the LEFT and the before is on the RIGHT but the last one is switched. Sorry




ETA: sorry the pictures are kind of small. That big brown box is stuff to leave and the biggest improvement is moving my sewing area out of the living room and into the closet (we got rid of 3/4th of the kids toys which freed up an entire closet so I repurposed it to my sewing space )
