Here is the tricky part about minimalism , your loved collections . But you don`t have to toss them out .
I have a small collection of the blue willow dishes and I have them displayed in the china cabinet . I have a few McCoy items and I have them on top of the kitchen cabinet , although I am thinking of selling those . I used to collect salt and pepper shakers but I gave that up sold some and I still have one tub to sell .
In the closet I have a small collection of music in the clear shoe box storage tub and a few baseball cards .
Minimalism is not about getting rid of everything you love and collect , its about managing what you have and not having this huge hoard that is in the way of daily life and the hoard costing you tons of money to keep .
Some people collect Art ( I do have a few pieces ) some collect trains , some collect old fishing lures Etc. Thats just who we are .
I do not suggest buying and buying and buying more to make a collect become a hoard so bad that you cannot display what you have in a clean and orderly fashion .
Minimalism is about balance , not so much and not to little .
When you feel satisfied you will know you have reached that balance.
