The Minimalist Wallet Series: Hasina from Fabulissime

What is in Hasina’s Purse

  • iPhone (seriously the best multitasking device ever)
  • Passport (I started travelling from a young age so I got into the habit of carrying my passport with me at all times)
  • Wallet (with id cards like driving license, insurance card, debit card, receipts, etc. – I prefer having everything in one place even if it means I have to carry around things I don’t need all the time like my frequent flyer card.)
  • Sketchbook & pencil (drawing is second nature to me. It’s a therapy. I like drawing when I’m stressed out.)
  • Face/Hand cream
  • Book (currently reading “Une gourmandise” by French author Muriel Barbery)
  • Lipgloss (I don’t wear a lot of makeup because I’m low maintenance -or too lazy ha!-; lipgloss makes me feel polished)
  • Keys (car, house, letterbox)
  • Mini tape measure (a little obsession since we bought and started renovating our house 3 years ago)
  • Baggu bag for groceries
  • Checks from clients (to be deposited to my bank account)

About Hasina

I write for Fabulissime.

I’m a visual arts lover. Art and design rock my world. (Not just interior design but also industrial design and graphic design.)

I studied languages and anthropology. I’m a formally trained translator, a self-taught artist/designer and a corporate dropout. I currently work as a freelance English to French translator but I’m in the process of launching my art/design business.

I think my perspective of minimalism has been enriched by my unique life experiences. I have seen all sides of the spectrum: born in a thirld world country (Madagascar) where some things we consider basic necessities in the Western world are a luxury, raised in France where living well is an everyday reality (and not a form of snobbery or elitism) and now living in North America where consumerism is king. Travelling has also helped me to put my opinions and reality into perspective. I try to take the best of all worlds without overconceptualizing minimalism or defining minimalism in a self-centric way.

About the Author

I'm a 20-something year old girl who lived out of a single suitcase in 2007, and now I'm living with less, but only with the best. You don't have to get rid of everything to become a minimalist! Minimalism can help simplify and organize your life, career, & physical surroundings. You can read more about me as a minimalist.
