Being able to have a fresh start is a great feeling! Whether that fresh start is moving into a new home, cleaning out your current home or starting a new job, your space is where you will spend most of your time with your loved ones. Do you have a lot of clutter and old things that you can donate? Well now is a great opportunity to clean out your home and start living a minimalistic lifestyle. Minimalism is all about living with less. For many minimalists, the philosophy is about getting rid of excess stuff and living life based on experiences rather than worldly possessions.
If you think you want to start living a minimal lifestyle here is a great guide to begin.
There are several aspects of living a minimal lifestyle:
Now, you do not need to get rid of everything to live a minimal lifestyle. Just pick and choose the right things for you. If you have items such as clothes, that you have not work for 90 days, then it may be time to donate it and pass it along for someone else to enjoy. It is especially important to get rid of clutter such as old toys, makeup or kitchen items and donate those as well. It may be hard to let these things go, but in the end, you may feel so much better.
With the “Go Green” aspect, take a look at what you currently have in your fridge and your pantry. Food can also take up tons of space and what’s even worse is that it can go bad. So, a great way to reduce your food storage is to buy local and seasonal items, meal prep for each week, compost foods such as vegetables and used coffee grounds and eat all the food in your pantry or fridge before you buy more.
