This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone anymore but I absolutely love being a part of the minimalist movement. When we first started downsizing over a year ago, I started seeking out other like-minded people. I read books, joined Facebook groups and watched tiny house documentaries. What I like to call The Minimalist Diet is really an entirely new, less stress way of living and I adore it. However, like I do with most things in my life, I found a way to add stress. Yes, the less-stress way of living, I made extremely stress-full. So how do you downsize and start minimalism with going overboard? How do you keep a clutter free home when you still have items you want to purchase? I have the answer to all these questions. How you can create a peaceful, minimalist environment and still keep “stuff” in your life.
