Happy Weekend

I’m finally getting the chance to go through our apartment and organize and purge. It feels so good to get rid of stuff! I’m by no means a minimalist but I’ve realized lately that everything we own just takes up space and that it takes time to manage it all. The less stuff you have, the more time you have. So I’ve been going through everything we own and donating all of it. My new motto is SIMPLIFY! WE have some fun plans this weekend that include a barbecue with friends in Palo Alto and then meeting some friends for the Mountain Play. We are also going to try to squeeze in a bike ride down to the Ferry Building on our new bikes. Have a good one amigos!

ps: I’m partnering with Method for a big giveaway at the Oh Happy Day Facebook page!

    This is awesome. I have to visit!

  • Freya says:

    Great picture! I’m no minimalist either but I think people should simplify too. Some people just horde stuff and that’s not good! I love going through my closet and donating things. Sometimes I try justifying holding onto something but then think that getting rid of something that I “may” wear in 6 years is a chance to buy something new and better!


  • Edwina says:

    Honestly, I’m the opposite of a minimalist (a maximist?) but there is nothing better than a good purge! Have a good weekend.

  • Yay for simplifying! I’m with you there. Also you’ll be in my neck of the woods! I work and play in Palo Alto, its a fun area. :)

    The less stuff you have, the less mess you have – if that’s also true I should definitely get rid of some stuff, too. Although – my weekend plans include a nice long visit at a fantastic flea market so I’m not sure if getting rid of stuff is exactly what I’m going to do…Have a great weekend!

  • there is nothing like a good purge!!! less is more always!! clutter is an obstacle to good things!!!

  • A good clear out is always a great thing! And what a stunning building, well worth the effort of a bike ride to see. Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  • This place is worthy of visits. Gotta love the simple things in life.

    I really want to get on this simplify bandwagon. So many people seem to be doing it and loving the results. I’m such a hoarder, but really, who needs 30 lipglosses in their life? Especially if they go off before I get to wear them.

    Maybe it’s time to have a rummage and see what I can get rid of!

  • Annie says:

    Just had a major purge and it feels SO GOOD to actually be able to fit all my stuff in my house.

  • Simple is best – a good purge usually allows more time for others and less time for stuff. That looks like a beautiful place right on the water. Hope you had a great weekend – welcome to the simplified life :-)!
