Flight Plan – Minimalism – Less stuff please!

I thought our house would be “perfect” when we built 14 years ago. Our oldest child was 3 at the time, the 2nd and 3rd not yet born. What did we know about what we would need in the future? Surely 3 bedrooms would be plenty for whatever number of kids we would have. And surely an open floor plan house would lend itself to a close knit family! Now we have 3 teens/preteens with one boy as the middle child. So teen daughter has to share with kid sister (ages 17 & 10) or with Mom & Dad until teen moves out! And open floor plan means no place to get away from anyone else – alone time, yes! I’m working on our basement now to make it a place where either the teens go or we, the parents, do. Yes, space is good!  Doors are good too!

Do we need a lot of “stuff” in that space?  A resounding no!!  DH occasionally orders online when he finds good deals.  The boxes arrive.  They get stacked somewhere in the entry or front room of our house, and they stay!

No!  We have nowhere to put the contents of those boxes, no matter how much he (we) wanted the item(s) inside.  No more!  Stuff must go out, not come in!
