Now blessed with a lovely home, I struggle to keep everything neat and organised. Pinterest has been such a great help to me these past months – assisting me in designing the flat for renovations; choosing themes and colour palettes; decorating, and now organising. I now have a good home and my primary job is to be a good homemaker.
I make weekly meal plans and grocery lists. We strive to eat according to season, and eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables from local grocers that put up stalls every morning at the square near our home. I try to live by my goal of eating natural and organic, being environmental-friendly by bringing my own biodegradable and reusable plastic bags and paper bags, and segregate our trash accordingly. We live a minimalist lifestyle by only buying what we need. This applies to personal care and even clothing. Years ago, I decided to clean out my closet. It took four years of slowly getting rid of things I did not actually like or need. Some time ago I also realised that being an environmentalist also went hand in hand with being a minimalist, so I decided to invest on good quality and expensive clothing, and made the effort of keeping and following the washing instructions to best preserve them. I was Kondo-ing even before the word Kondo came out. I am a strange person and maybe I am becoming more and more strange as years go by.
