You may recall that I decide to participate in the Reverse 100 Things Challenge, which was to eliminate 100 items by the end of 2012. I didn't finish by the end of the year, and I didn't quite make it to 100, but I'm going to share the list of things that have been either … Continue reading Reverse 100 Things Challenge and a Giveaway
I recently declared "I want to do a photo tour of my apartment, once I clean it and purge everything I haven't used in the last six months." Guess what? Yep. Cleaning marathon. I spent about eight hours cleaning my apartment, assembling all my to-purge items in a big "organized" pile, rearranging my living room, … Continue reading Welcome to my home!
I moved into my first apartment All By Myself on June 15, 2012. It's been over six months, which means it is time to take a hard look at my belongings and evaluate what I have and have not used in the past half-year. The way I see it, if I haven't used it in … Continue reading Mid-year checkpoint
It is so easy to make a mess in the car. You're driving and eating, driving and talking, driving and dealing with a dog in the car, driving and listening to music... very rarely do we just get into the car and drive somewhere in silence without touching any other object. Thus, our car gets … Continue reading Decluttering the car

Stop wishing it was different. Stop worrying about numbers on a scale. Stop negative self-talk. Stop reading magazines that promote airbrushed models as … Continue reading Love your body, clean your closet

However, times change, lives change, people change, and you may no longer wish to be connected to some of those friends. Many people … Continue reading To unfriend, or not to unfriend?
How often do you delete emails without reading them? It starts innocently enough. Maybe you signed up for emails to get a discount on your shopping trip one day, or you signed up for a card at a restaurant to get a free appetizer. Perhaps you signed a petition to show your support for a … Continue reading Click here to unsubscribe
Hi, I'm Caitlin, and I am a recovered Just-In-Case-A-Holic. I took the opportunity to remove everything from my bathroom while I was cleaning it, so I could take an honest look at what I had. My findings astounded me. How about those four brand-new deodorants? The two packs of makeup remover cloths when I hardly … Continue reading My not-so-minimalist bathroom
I recently acquired a new love in my kitchen, the TofuXpress. If you're vegetarian, vegan, or someone who enjoys tofu (but doesn't enjoy pressing it between two plates and beneath a tower of heavy objects), go check it out. Right now. I'll wait. Per my own minimalist rules... if it doesn't get used regularly (once … Continue reading Paring down the kitchen
I've been living in my flat for a week now, and six boxes remain unpacked. I've rifled through them on occasion to look for something, but I have yet to put them all away. A couple major reasons for slacking are that (1) I spent most of the week at my partner's house, and (2) … Continue reading Boxes
