We all accumulate a lot of stuff. Whether it’s for the kids, for the pets, for all four seasons or for special occasions – it all seems necessary. Fast-forward to when you’ve fully maxed out storage space, and it all starts to feel like baggage. There’s no doubt it can get overwhelming.
What if there was a better way?
Sometimes less is more. Think less clutter, less cleaning and less stress. All that translates to more space, more freedom and more peace-of-mind. The simple process of shedding some clutter can make a world of difference. To us, living minimally means living simply.
Here’s a few easy ways to start living a happier, simpler life.
1. Shed the Clutter
How do you know what’s absolutely necessary? You might need those old bridesmaid dresses sometime right? Start with duplicates. Walk around your house removing duplicates of things you don’t need. You’ll be much happier and clear-headed when you do.
2. Shop Smarter
An easy way to live a minimalist lifestyle is to think before purchasing anything. Don’t be swayed by deals and bargins, only shop for necessity. If you take the time and effort to research quality products – the products that give you the most bang for your buck – you’ll make sure you’re not going through the cycle of breaking and replacing items regularly. Purchase items that are built to last. They’re worth the investment.
3. Get Creative
Creative repurposing of products you have an abundance of will help you live a simpler life. Here’s an example (and a plug). I always have a ton of toilet paper but I never have paper towels or napkins. By using Tissue On A Roll, TP easily becomes a multi-purpose paper product that I can use for virtually everything.
4. Plan Your Meals
Living minimally also includes what you eat. Figure out a few of your favorite meals and learn to cook them at home. Work these recipes into your schedule and rely less on ordering out and you’ll save a lot of money, enjoy delicious meals and waste less.
5. Be Mindful
This concept is important and often overlooked. One of the easiest ways to live a minimalist lifestyle is to remember that experiences are much more important than things. Be present, live in the moment, and enjoy the simple things life has to offer and you’ll be well on your way to living a minimalist lifestyle.
