Creating meaningful change in your life isn’t easy. Nor should it be. Some say that the most meaningful things in their lives took the most effort.

As I continue to evolve along the minimalist path I could lie and say it is so easy to just walk away from your stuff.

I am doing that right now. But it does take effort. And it will take time.

Try to not get caught up in the big picture of how much stuff you may have to declutter and get organized. It is too easy to get overwhelmed and then you probably won’t start.

Just pick an area of your place and get started. And once you start you will keep going.

The only rule to follow for living a minimalist life is to do what works for you right now.

You can only do what you can do. Again baby steps.

It’s great that some people have gotten their personal belongings down to 100 Things or less and maybe you aspire to that. But you cannot get discouraged with what you have yet to accomplish.

Some people have children that are involved in things. And that is okay. Maybe you can just make some smaller choices that help you lead a minimalist lifestyle today.

  • No TV for a day.
  • No cell for a day.
  • No spending for a day.
  • Not checking email 50000000 times a day.
  • Just sit still for 30 minutes(or longer)
  • Put away laundry(less clutter)

    So what are some other daily things you do to live as a minimalist?

    Just do some little things today that work for you as it pertains to living a minimalist lifestyle.

    You may be surprised where those little steps end up taking you.

    “Live Simply”

  1. Oh Lord. Definitely the laundry. All 10 baskets of it.

    I screen all my calls and don’t pick up unless I have to or want to. Cuts down on talking to keep other people happy.

    When I leave a room I take a look around and if there is anything destined for where I’m going I grab it and it goes with me.

    Trying not to put anything off. As in: deleting unwanted email now, tossing junk mail as it comes, sorting out kid’s too small clothes while doing laundry, taking away that old toy when I see it etc. People don’t need a “special” time to do things. Why handle it twice (or a hundred times?).

    And just sitting and thinking, for a very few minutes, several times a day. I actually often put on ear protection to muffle out my kid’s noises. Just to refocus.

    I lot of the things I practice probably have to do with having children, as I don’t remember them ever being necessary pre-kids!

    1. Fantastic ideas! I am finding that a lot of people with kids just automatically think that a minimalist lifestyle, in any form, could never be for them. Screening calls! Love it! Thanks so much for these easy tips for everyday minimalist living.
