Journal #145 – Taking Minimalism To Next Level

Earlier this year I started my journey on minimalism. Then it got more and more extreme where I am reviewing all the things that I have kept because of sentimentality and “just in case”. So I toss those sentimental and “just in case” stuff.

At the same time I decided to choose to go with a personal uniform so that I don’t need to spend so much time thinking what I want to wear for that day.

So I went to get three new olive-green colored flannels from Uniqlo.

For that three new flannels, I tossed out 12 items from my wardrobe, ranging from old shorts, t-shirts, polo shirt, and flannels.


Now my wardrobe is full of unused clothes hangers but it’s ok. It just show how far I have come.

I still got more stuffs to get rid and I will spend the next month to do that.

Another thing that I will be doing is to uninstall social media apps from one of my iPhones.

I know you are probably wondering why I have two phones when I am on a minimalism journey. Well, one of them serves as a work phone and all notifications are turned off. I personally need physical objects to help me compartmentalize different aspect of my life and so the phone is one of that.

I have also decided that I don’t need the new MacBook Pro anymore or the new iPhone 8. Don’t get me wrong. I love Apple products but then I realize if something that I have now works just fine, especially electronics, there is no need to get new one. Besides, there is no 100% guarantee that the manufacturing of Apple product is 100% environmental friendly.

Here I conclude my journal for today.
