The saddest moment in a minimalist’s life…

February 16, 2011



The brunette gets rid of garbage.


only to find that they have more garbage than garbage can space, and now they need to wait a week for the next garbage truck to come around.


The minimalist has overflowed her garbage can.

    The eternal garbageproblem… proof that minimalism is needed!

    Wow. I’m still working on this purging thing and have yet to encounter this problem… I guess that’s a sign that I’m keeping too much?!

    That is such a bummer! I know the feeling…especially with recycling pickup. We recycle a lot and the bin isn’t large enough…and they don’t pick up often enough…and then there’s this clutter of bottles and cardboard. Ugh.

    Piles of trash bags languishing in a corner for a week are so not minimal. Sadly, this has happened to us more than I’d like to admit. No matter how many cans you have it is never enough. I imagine cans quake in fear when they see you coming!

    I’m sure you can go to a nearby public dumpster and toss your space-occupying-unwanted things.

    I know this feeling well. I kept saying next week we’ll be caught up! For eight straight weeks I was overflowing…It felt great!!!
