I realized I wasn't detailed enough in my last thread about moving.

so, here are my problem "zones"


I don;t have much, i actually need a few items, but dh and dd seem to have lots.


If you go minimalist how much clothing do/would you have for a 1y/o when you are only able to do laundry on wednesdays and saturdays? (we c/d mostly as well)

how many:




bibs (would mayeb a wipeable one work better, we have like 20 cloth gross ones!)








I'm lost here...we are down to 4 plates (three of us including dd 1)

5 forks etc

already got rid of: popcorn popper, waffle iron, ypgurt maker etc

we do have surplus: knives, baby food jars, wooden spoons

I find myself cooking a LOT and doing dishes a LOT yet there is always a mountain.


pantry....lotta random dry good we tend not to use up, though doing better with chickpeas, beans etc

supplements: got rid of tons but they multiply!


it just seems like there's constant clutter and this is after getting rid of about 50% of our posessions we aim to move from our 2brm to a bachelor or trailer...


eta: we have a small budget...?

oh, towels!how many?

I'm not sure ... sort of subbing to this.  I was thinking maybe one outfit for everday of the week?  Get rid of anything you don't love ... get rid of anything you don't use regularly.
