EVERYTHING THAT I OWN

As some of you may know already I am traveling back to Australia and then the world will be my home. Therefore I wanted everything that I own to be able to be packed into a suitcase and weigh less than 20kgs, which is the amount that I am permitted to bring onto my flight back to Australia, and so it does. I also thought that it’d be interesting to write down everything that I own just so that I’d be able to track my process of living a more minimalistic existence. Personally I think it seems like a lot when I wrote everything out but then again I think I have less things than a lot of people.

  1. This is awesome, good for you! I recently got a “to go ware” cutlery set- bamboo knife, fork, spoon and chopsticks in a little pouch. I added my reusable straw and it now goes everywhere with me. Thought it might be something you find useful 🙂 I don’t think I would ever want to have such a very small amount but I love the idea of being able to carry everything with me! Enjoy your adventures X

    1. I love to go ware as well! I know this sort of life definitely isn’t for everyone and maybe it won’t be forever for me either but for now it is perfect x maybe it will change when I have children!

    1. I kept “the power of now” as I am not done reading that, “thrive” as I haven’t read that yet, “big magic” because it is a favorite and “I thought it was just me (but it isn’t) because it is a go-to! x I am the same with paper over ebooks! I will have to get a kindle eventually but for now i will simply go to the library!

  2. This is so perfect. It’s about the most I would ever want. I have been good with keeping up with the decluttering but seeing what you have reminds me of what I am working towards. Love it.
