Minimalism by Theft

Have you been over to Crystal's new blog? I absolutely love her Minimalism by Theft idea!!

Over the last couple of years we've sort of outgrown our house. It seams a little silly... this house that the 3 of us live in is bigger than the house I grew up in, and there were 5 of us living there. I've started clearing some closets... I've got 5 garbage bags full of Megan's clothes ready to take to the Women's Center Resale Shop. And Chris bought me a Kindel a couple of weeks ago... I love it!!! Now I just need to work on clearing out the bookcases (will I ever really read all those books?)

And now I'm going to give Minimalism by Theft a try. I've asked Chris to "steal" one thing from me each day this month. He asked if anything was off-limits... I only ask that he not "steal" from a current project on my sewing table. After all, the goal is to see what's lying around the house that I no longer need... and not to drive me crazy.

Want to see what Crystal found in her box? Check out her posts here and here.

Interesting concept. I would be very afraid of what my hubby would steal from my things.

I'm so excited to see what ends up in the box and what you do about it. I hope it's a good experience for you...it really opened my eyes!
