“Every time you spend money you're casting a vote for the kind of world you want.”
Anna Lappé

I'm knackered.

Moving home will do that to you.

The big stuff is easy (furniture, framed pictures, filing cabinet etc), it's the little stuff which when aggregated becomes a minimalists nightmare. This is stuff you didn't know you had and can't believe you bought in the first place and makes you wonder :
  • why did I have three kettles?
  • Is seven bed sets too much?
  • When did I ever need seventeen mugs?

For the next couple of weeks I'll be at my folks, sifting through every box of my life (about 20 of various shapes and sizes) with the aim to end up with two large suitcases to take to NZ plus a filing cabinet full of important stuff (financials, photos, precious other things etc).

Well that's the aim.


  1. DK,found you through minimalist packrat's 2011 All Star List of Minimalist Bloggers.
    Good luck in NZ, always wanted to go, might get there one day....l'm only over the ditch in OZ.
    Please update on your progress in getting through the 20 boxes of your life so far. Interested to see how you decide what goes, what stays, what has meaning to you now and what doesn't. All the best Felicity.

  2. Appreciate you stopping by and for the well wishes -just did a final post which wraps up this little blog / project :-)
