There is often talk about decluttering, eliminating excess, and minimalism in general here at Apartment Therapy. Megan Deal, a graphic designer from Detroit Michigan, is taking it to the extreme, by selling everything she owns. On the internet...
On the first of June, Megan will be moving to Greensboro, Michigan to work with a group of passionate, young designers on creating meaningful projects in the impoverished community. Housed on the HERO (Hale Empowerment and Revitalization Organization) campus, Megan will bring only one bag with her, and stay for 14 months.
Her website, goodbye wafflemaker explains her motivation for selling everything in such an interesting way as being "one part stoop sale and one part personal experiment." Her intention is to lighten her load and remove clutter from her life. While we may not take the idea quite so far, we love the idea of letting go of everything unnecessary in order to think and act more clearly. This is an intriguing idea intended to allow Megan to fund her trip to a poverty-stricken community in order to create sustainable living ideas and bolster a community.
