How Minimalism Got it Wrong and Why I LOVE Collecting

  1. Kristin Cronic says:

    YESSSS!!! I love this Tessie. I love to thoughtfully curate what stays. My favorite things to collect are books, military coins, handmade pottery, Christmas ornaments, art, and deck prisms. They all make me so happy !

  2. Love your cute photos. Like you I love my collections.Though the years of miltiary moves I definitely regret not keeping some things. When the spark joy declutter movement started, all my collections spark joy!

    When we moved across the country, I tossed many things I loved. One of me thought we are starting a new chapter. Another part of me wanted to offload weight only to realize later that the cost of moving went down the heavier our container got. So I feel so sad about many things, but it’s time to move away from regret.

      Anya, I’ve definitely been there before! It’s always a give and take with what to get rid of and what to keep, but you can definitely let go of that regret and look forward with a fresh slate ❤️
