See more about this Episode

Are you still clinging onto that collage of the Friends cast you made in middle school? Do you ever find random pieces of clothing in your purse? As a self-proclaimed maximalist, I certainly fall victim to the clutter of holding onto old memories. Let’s be real: Getting rid of things is hard. It takes effort to think about minimizing the amount of stuff in your life.

Minimalists strive to live in the moment, create more and consume less, and rid themselves of unnecessary things. There’s a freedom that comes from this practice: the freedom to make choices that are more deliberate and, in turn, more fulfilling.

Watch as Lucie Fink tries her best to clear out the clutter and reclaim organization.

About Try Living with Lucie

Refinery29's Lifestyle Host, Lucie Fink, dives headfirst into social experiments, 5 days at a time. Manhattan's very own Millennial survivor-woman is willing to try it all and see what she learns along the way -- testing her mental and physical strengths. New to the city, she is asked to shut off her cell phone for the following work week and then spend a limited $50 the next. Do you know how much the subway costs now-a-days? It's time to watch and learn with Lucie.
