i did some minimalizing around the house yesterday. i didn't set out to find a minimalizing project,我只是想买些洗碗皂。但当我打开厨房水槽下面的橱柜门时，我知道我已经找到了我最近最省力的方法——各种清洁方案，海绵,刮刀,和塑料瓶。
我遵循我的典型公式:创建三堆(出售/捐赠/垃圾，搬迁,返回),重组,and complete. but for this project,i added one important step: test. that's right! i took every product that we don't use regularly and tested it before deciding to keep it. it's amazing how many "specialized" cleaning solutions seem to do the same job as one multi-purpose disinfectant.
it took me one trash bag and about 45 minutes to complete the task. at the end,我有一个新的最小值，整齐,对我们的清洁解决方案有了新的认识，还有一个干净的淋浴器(浴室清洁剂的效果非常好，我决定继续清洗，把淋浴器也洗完)。
我给我妻子和你的建议——下次你打算买新的时候，全新包装专用清洗液，ask yourself if you really need it. and if you do,问问你自己，没有它你是如何保持干净的……
