simple living series • on storage.

I want to live by the saying, "A place for everything and everything in its right place." Therefore, I need to keep the word "storage" out of my head from now on. Pinterest (as I previously mentioned) has been my go-to for minimalism inspiration, and I have a Minimalism Pinterest board in which I pin images that help me stay on track with my goals. While pinning the other day, I searched for "storage solutions," hoping to find some tips for tucking things away in a small space. Then it hit me -- I shouldn't need storage solutions, because I shouldn't have enough stuff to warrant that! I recently read about a fashion blogger (who is probably one amongst many) who has a public storage facility for some of her clothing. That is mind-blowing to me. Even if half of the clothes were free from sponsors, that's too much. When it gets to the point when I have to pay someone else to hold my crap, slap me. Thanks!

Though, I already have a few storage bins in my basement with old things in it that I just can't part with. Those things have been down there for months, and I haven't thought about them until I started writing this post. I probably could just dump it all, but I'm going to sort through them just in case there's something valuable or sentimental hiding. After that's taken care of, I think I'll reassess what I have in my bedroom. My walls have started looking like a crowded museum gallery, and since I took the doors off my closet, everything is quite visible. I have a lot of clothing to sell or donate, so I'll be working on that very soon too!

What are your thoughts on "storage?" Do you have a lot of things hidden away in buckets or is it just me?

  1. Ah storage. There never seems to be enough space for some things! I've recently started using old vintage suitcases to store all my pieces of fabric. Which I think looks great and is super handy too! :)
