maureencoates Ooou, my childhood #walnut #expandable #round #diningtable, #refinished in a slightly darker #stain and now paired with #Danish #vintage, #teak with #wovenseat #diningchairs. Could not be happier with this combo. #myview #ManzanitaTree #downsizing #Ottawa #condo #CathedralHill #CanuckInACondo 15h
  •   tamikj Your table is beautiful & even more special is that it holds so many memories for you. 15h
  •   maureencoates Yes it does Tam @tamikj , including the huge scratch (gone now) from Easter Egg hunt of many years past when one of us (not me) dropped something on the table. Ya, that was BAD! 15h

southofvanilla I've been working on downsizing my possessions, decluttering, and making a positive, happy environment. Although I was skeptical, I read Marie Kondo's book "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up", and I am totally hooked. Today, I am working on getting rid of papers, and it is so freeing. I am amazed at how much I have accumulated, and how many things I have that aren't serving me, and I have no need for. I am a KonMari convert! #konmari #konmarimethod #tidying #declutter #decluttering #declutteryourlife #cleaning #organizing #freeing #paleo #blogger #paleolife #grainfree #glutenfree #lifestyleblog #downsizing #downsize #instagood 1d

  •   southofvanilla @tlz812 some of the concepts are bizarre (like talking to your clothes) but overall, it's helped me get rid of a lot of things I don't need and have been holding on to for years ! 9h

pinkrosessheila New T-shirts. 25, to be exact. 12 for me (top) and 13 for Rod (bottom). We are finishing up and refining our clothes, alongside *still* decluttering Way.Too.Much.Paper.

One of the ideas many minimalist wardrobe gurus talk about a lot is having a "uniform" of sorts to make getting dressed simpler. Many famous and brilliant people (President Obama, Mark Zuckerburg, The Minimalists, Steve Jobs, many fashion designers, etc.) have a go-to "look" or "uniform" so they don't have to waste their limited brain power and energy on worrying about what to wear every day, and can spend more of their limited resources on their important contributions to the world, whatever form that takes.

I've been thinking about that idea, and it resonates with me. I've been struggling to figure out what my wardrobe should be like, while still feeling like *me*. Most of my time is spent at home, either doing my homemaker type things, or working from home part-time, doing my administrative support job for my church. Jeans, shorts, tennies and t-shirts mostly. I prefer v-necks in the summer (because Texas), and crew necks in the winter because thy're a bit warmer. Easy.
I was sorely lacking enough "house" shirts (the ones that get dirty when you do house stuff) so these should do it. Notice they are all about the same? The colors can go on top of almost any shorts or jeans color. Rod needed new shirts too. These are all men's shirts, and despite our very different builds, both of us wear the same size men's t-shirts. I tried women's shirts on—oh, my! The fit was not good. 😕 Just because we were there (at Walmart), I tried some men's shirts since Rod was getting some. Much better! And because like, $3.58 or $4.47 per shirt(!) Rod and I already agreed we can raid each others' drawer for a t-shirt if one of us is out. How convenient is *that*??

  •   the_kookie This is such a good idea 1d
  •   mymrfrodo Thought of you today as I was filing bills and noticing I had some shredding to do to declutter my life! Am almost finished with the book! 1d
  •   rose909405 Impressed with your organization Sheila!! Great job! 1d
  •   asnishi So interesting! Thanks for the great thoughts I definitely have developed a "uniform" and it makes getting dressed and packing for trips so easy. I hadn't even thought of it this way, though! 1d
  •   julikalackner I love the idea of a minimalist wardrobe. 24h

  •   oahellstrom Det är bra. Skönt för oss andra att slippa vänta bara för att du har fel utväxling :p 1d
  •   nlc76 Tänkte nog mer på kassetten än tänder på minsta drevet ;-) Så nu kan jag både köra 12-25 och få 18T! 1d
  •   oahellstrom 25t använder man väl bara på +600km? 1d
  •   nlc76 Can't tell. Körde ju 11-23 och 10-delat på 100-milaren (fast då med kompakt fram). 1d
  •   oahellstrom Aha, tänkte att du hade köpt kompakt. Med standardvevar är 25t helt kosher. 1d
  •   nlc76 Velig som jag är blev det nån slags "semi-variant", 50/36 på denna. Nästa kassett blir dock 11-23. 1d
