We are family of 2 adults, 1 DS, 1 Dog and 2 kittens. I am taking this challenge to see what we can really live without. : ) I will keep y'all posted.
Books are my main thing. I listed 14 books on Amazon yesterday. They're part of a reference series. I bought them several months ago and shouldn't have. Anyway, trying to get something for them. Put aside about 15 books for my church's library, along with 5-6 CDs, and a CD player. Two books to other people.
I've also gotten rid of a lot of paper, some old clothes not fit for public wearing any longer, etc. But I'm also getting rid of other stuff. My cupboards were stuffed, so I packed up 5-6 bags of things for the food pantry. I want to get down to very minimal.
The Miss Minimalist blog has been great inspiration!

I would love to join in...if the Army does not move us this summer, we are staying put for another 2 yrs most likely...this means that next April when our rental lease is up, we will be moving ourselves. I want an easy move!

Wading slowly and nervously into this homeschooling thing.
Bumping this thread :) We are already pretty minimal, living in a 600 sf one-bedroom apt, having decluttered plenty.. But we are ready to pare down to even less. I really think we can, though we have had people say that it can't be possible. There is no single area that we haven't gone over more than once, but I think almost every area can be weeded through again and I will find a thing or two to get rid of. A few books, a few clothing pieces from all three of us, some kitchen thingy, a couple of toys.. Oh and I'm waiting for DH to go through some dvd's that I want to get rid of, to see if there is something he must save.. and then I'm packing everything up in one plastic container. I got rid of all of my cd's but DH is still hanging on to a bunch even though we listen to the music on our computer.
Anyway, I'm challenging myself to pare down even more. I want to continue living in small spaces with minimal stuff.
