Last year something amazing happened.
Our basement flooded from a faulty dishwasher, and we ended up having to throw out a couple of damaged boxes from our storage. Not the most exciting of events it would seem, but inside one of those boxes was something I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with for years!
MY CHILDHOOD TROPHIES!!!
The bane of all minimalists! Haha…
By the time we noticed the leak, the waterlogged boxes were full of waterlogged trophies with mold starting to grow on them (wooden bases), and just like that the decision was made for me – out in the trash they go!
It was one of the most exhilarating – and freeing – things that’s happened on my path towards minimalism.
