I'm only still relatively fresh to this but to date, I haven't bought a single piece of clothing (apart from maybe undies) or shoes. I don't own cosmetics or moisturizers or any of that gunk.
We have no more microwave (it didn't occur to me at how 'weird' this was until somebody came over the other day and went on and on about it - hence, prompting this discussion).
Anyways, off the top of my head and for the moment they're the biggies. I'm sure there'll be plenty more along the way.
What crap have YOU ditched?
Well done! Keep going, dig deeper! You'll see the treasures you'll find. All the best.
Holy s*** balls, Kim! Great work
Why didn't I think of that? Bam! They're gone. Thanks, pirh!
credit cards are awesome! especially when you max them out and cut them up :P

"bed (Sleeping on a mat on the floor is way more comfortable, eliminated my shoulder aches, and a big part of healing my low back pain.) "
Cloudyknight, it's because of you that I am trying this tonight. I hate my bed.
Oh! Oh! I have one more!
GUM!!! I used to be addicted to chewing gum (Extra Professional, the kind that brushes your teeth) to stave off hunger. I went through at LEAST a pack a day.
I have the cavities to prove it.
Chocolate <--this was a big one. I used to have to have chocolate every day. Now I walk past the chocolate aisles like a boss
Worrying about eating "too much"
An inch around my waist
Artificially sweetened candies
Love it! "Like a boss"
got rid of:
pots and pans (majority - bf still eats cooked)
most of my clothes! all animal made product.
moved to a smaller apartment - didn't need so much space and didn't need to spend so much money.
i get outside more, smell the fresh air, less time around food.
STUFF - in general! i realized that i don't need so much...STUFF!
such a freeing experience!
oh yes, and makeup, toxic cleaning products, toxic soaps.
in general, if i can't eat it, i won't put it on my body.
