You can desire to make all the changes in the world, but if your mindset isn’t aligned with the actions you need to take in order to actually reach your goal, it’s going to be hard to turn your aspirations for a simpler life into reality.
It can be hard to change habits that have been created over a lifetime. While it is certainly no easy feat, I’m sharing some tips to hopefully assist you in developing the right mindset that will help you in your quest to downsize and simplify. [Read more…]
Can you believe Valentine’s Day is only a little over two weeks away? I love holidays (even of the Hallmark variety), and the chance to give gifts to my loved ones. Perhaps this isn’t the most minimalist approach, but I take great joy in finding gifts that I think they will enjoy and put to good use.
The worst kind of gift to me is one that ends up turning into clutter because it just sits around. I tend to gravitate towards consumable items as gift choices since they can either be used up or eaten within a matter of a few months, so they don’t leave a footprint in the receiver’s home for too long. My one exception is for items that aren’t necessarily consumable, but would prove to be extremely useful or very much enjoyed.
I have decided that if there is a good response to this post, I would really love to start up a whole series of non-clutter gift guides for each holiday as the year progresses. I really had a fun time putting this together 🙂 . Please share your thoughts and opinions with me after reading, as I’d appreciate any feedback!

My decision to go without purchasing any clothes this year came as a result of three steps I walked myself through during the process of decluttering my closet. At the end of this process, I found the motivation that is driving me to complete the “Year of No Clothes” Challenge. [Read more…]
