I think I want to be a minimalist / by Erin Baynham

This will be hard. I'm one of those people with clutter every where -- my side of the bedroom, my wardrobe, my mind. But since I've moved in with my husband, I'm definitely getting better.  The Haute Blogger launches next month, and I'm going to be making a lot of changes as far as time management goes. So while I've been working hard all day, I've also been taking breaks and reading Into Mind, a minimalist fashion and lifestyle blog. The beginner's guide, 30 day challenge and practical minimalism posts have me ready to dive in. Guys, I think I can do this. I'm at a point where I'm finding clarity, and I realize that I don't want to live like this anymore!

The first thing I'm tackling is my closet. I definitely don't want to say that I'll commit to the guide pictured above, but I definitely need to downsize. I joined Poshmark ages ago, but I'll be adding some items to my shop over the next few weeks. I doubt I'll wear my wedding shoes again, might as well sell them! How about that awesome size 4 Kenneth Cole dress? I'm selling it. I'm excited for a fresh start!

Later on, I'd like to dive into all the crap that's around the house. Why the heck are there so many papers? Do we really need so much stuff in the pantry? I see a fun (and decluttered) 2015 ahead!
