If there's a Throwback Thursday, there is also a Throwaway Thursday . These are pictures of stuffs that I am letting go or giving away to give way to a minimalist lifestyle, stuffs that I have been holding on for reasons unknown. This is one of my mantras: Less stuff, stress. For more information,see the post
Why do I want to become a Minimalist? Because I want to travel and live with just a backpack for a long period of time before I turn 30, not caring for a huge make-up bag or a hair-blower because, as much I am tomboyish, I still got my kikay side which is frustrating coz it means you have all kinds of products for different kinds of needs. UGH, WOMEN! I want to travel light so I can go places without carrying a huge luggage. When I go back home, I want to go backpacking all over the Philippines and that, my friends, is the reason I want to be a minimalist.
I gave away make-up to my teenage neighbor. I once invited her over to rummage through my make-up stash and to take whatever she likes. She had fun and I was relieved that I gave away most of my make-up instead of throwing it away. I also gave away a huge make-up bag to my nieces back home and my sister-in-law said to give more books instead. Haha! I have hoarded a lot of cheap make-ups and this time around, whenever I am in the hunt for cosmetics, I would consider quality over quantity.
I recently sent a huge Balikbayan box for my family back home. It mostly contains a lot of clothes, shoes and personal stuffs that I am not using to be given to my mom and nieces. I seriously have less stuffs here and I am loving it. I feel free and light but I still have to go through a lot!
These are stuffs I donated this week:
|1 Old Navy long sleeve shirt|
1 Aeropostale jogging pant and 2 random pants
1 brown antique-like box
