The holidays are coming and for minimalists, this can be like a tiny form of a nightmare. Presents are coming. Decorations are coming. In laws are coming! I’m only kind of teasing about that last nightmare. For myself personally, I have started struggling with anxiety during the holidays because of the added clutter. I’ve made my peace with Grandma and Grandpa’s presents and accepted the fact that my tree is going to be total chaos but I cannot accept the added clutter of decorations. If you totally get where I’m coming from, don’t worry, I have come up with some ways to manage clutter during the holidays and I’ve gotten some ideas from other minimalist friends! If you’re desperately looking for minimalist ways to decorate your home for the holidays to avoid clutter, then this is a must see post!
I don’t live in a tiny home, but it is definitely a dream of mine. Even though I’m not officially “living tiny,” we did downsize our house and lose 2,000 square feet of finished living space. Although we don’t have a crazy tiny house, I did look around the other day and realize how creative I have been in finding and creating storage in the space we do have. I know some people have gotten even more creative than me and that’s why I wanted to share some genius ideas with you. Here are some of the best ways to create space in a tiny home so you can stay small and organized at the same time.
Mom guilt is a real thing and it is rough. Keeping track of schedules, concerts, sports and managing individual personalities is exhausting.
I’m here to tell you that you can actually be a better mom by doing less. Being a minimalist mom, I have learned minimalism goes way beyond downsizing and organizing. It’s all about your mindset and priorities too.
Often times people think of minimalism in terms of “stuff” and the things that we own and accumulate. This is all true and plays a huge roll in the minimalist lifestyle. Today, however, I want to get down to the lesser known struggle of minimalism. The side you can’t see. The side that says “yes” to too many things for fear of missing out or disappointing someone. That cluttered part of your schedule that is trying to make more hours than there is in a day. How do you take your life back? What steps are necessary to making your schedule (and your life) your own again? What exactly does it take to start saying “no?” How do you downsize your schedule? Well, I’m about to give you all you need so you can downsize your schedule — like a boss. Like a minimalist boss.
It’s that time of the year! Spring is just around the corner and I am oh, so excited about it! Spring cleaning is about to be in full swing and I do not want you to think spring cleaning is limited to deep cleaning and decluttering! While that is definitely an exhilarating experience…at least to me! I don’t want you to forget about all the other ways you might need some serious decluttering! After a long winter (especially in Minnesota) I know my mind needs some sanity and sunlight. My body has been cooped up for far too long and it definitely needs some TLC too! That’s why we are going to go over these 25 ways to completely declutter your mind, body and home!
