Some people may believe is minimalism is a fad trend, but actually, many people seek happiness in living minimally. The first place to start when seeking the path to a simpler life is to de-clutter your home. Below are some ideas on how you can start.
One of the first and one of the most important steps is to rid your house of too many items. It’s important to start slow and intentionally. Throw out or donate everything you don’t obviously need first. Then, wait a few days so you can ponder on the things you think you might need. Keep reminding yourself that stripping away as much stuff from your life will make it easier to achieve a simpler lifestyle.
One way you can live more minimally is by not having two of the same thing. If you have two of the same book, DVD, piece of stationary etc. then you need to throw away or donate one. This will stop you having so much clutter.
Ask yourself questions
Before you buy anything, you should ask yourself “do I really need this?” At first, you may easily justify purchases out of habit, but as the question sinks in, you might find that you don’t need items that you impulse buy.
Have a space for everything
If your house is fairly small, small spaces aren’t forgiving. If you’re aiming to live minimally, no space on the floor should have items on it. By using clever storage spots, you can help keep your house clear of clutter.
Get rid of decorations
Many of the decorations in our homes hold no personal meaning or value to our lives – they are simply there for aesthetic purposes. Take a moment to walk through your home and only keep decorations that are meaningful.
