UPDATE: I’m IN! :)

Hey Everyone,

 

Just a quick heads up!

I have moved in and in the process of packing out and waiting for my broadband to be set up. Alas, no blogging until it’s done as mobile data allowance is not too generous.

The Question That Is Often Asked When On A Minimalist Journey

WHY?

Going through my stuff, trying to sort and declutter before packing them up for a move in less than three weeks. I’ve only packed 4 boxes (and two large bags of books) but I already feel it’s too much. How will I fit everything I want to keep into the 20 or 25 boxes I have?
