Streamlined - The "No Purse for 30 Days Diet"

About a month ago I had a discussion with work peeps regarding how much "stuff" people bring to work. I'm a self-admitted minimalist (always have the smallest purse with the fewest amount of things inside said purse) but I wanted to challenge myself and maybe (?) prove a point at the same time.

Disclaimer - I'm not a "girly-girl" who depends on lots of makeup or hair accoutrements to get thru my day. Don't wear makeup and work in an extremely casual environment where jeans are my go-to attire du jour. I also keep toothpaste, a toothbrush and dental floss in my work cubby.

For the last month, this is what I've carried to work in my pockets :

* Cell phone (the case is standing in for the phone since I used it to take this picture) in the front right pocket

* Keys - front left pocket

* Burt's Bees Lip Balm - front left pocket

* Canvas card holder - back right pocket (not in the best condition, but it was a freebie so that counts for something) (Btw, I'm frugal too!)

Pockets

 

Wasn't too difficult of a transition and I actually liked not carrying anything else into work. It's made me rethink carrying a purse to begin with and has really streamlined my life.

Would you / could you go on a No Purse Diet? What would be your imagined obstacles? 

 


Starting and Stopping and Starting Again

Talking about my blog. 

Between life and work and Facebook and Twitter and everything else, my blog gets little use these days. Spent the last hour catching up on several Colorado bloggers and it makes me want to get back into blogging.

Believe it or not, I'm considering giving up Facebook (Shock, I know - The Social Media Queen jumping ship!!) but not sure if I can pull the plug when it comes right down to it. I love  keeping track of my distant relatives and local friends...distant friends too...but I'm the first to admit it's a time drain. We'll see what happens.

Have you given up Facebook or Twitter or any other form of Social Media? Why? How was your life different afterwards?
