Minimalist Living Can Be Whatever You Want It Yo Be
So maybe you are looking around after the holiday season and wondering what you are going to do with all the stuff.
I am sure you are not alone.
We certainly have a lot of stuff don’t we?
Are you sick of it?
Tired of the clutter?
Well the interesting thing about living a minimalist lifestyle is that it can be whatever you want it to be.
It is your path to walk.
- Minimalist living is very freeing.
- Minimalist living is cheaper.
- Minimalist living is calming.
You have what is important to you. You have things that you find beautiful and useful. Stuff that has purpose.
Not useless clutter.
Now stuff that I consider clutter you may find beautiful and purposeful.
And that is okay.
It is your minimalist lifestyle after all.
There is no one way to do something.
Don’t Believe All The Bullshit
Give up on listening to the media. They want one thing of course.
To have you open up your wallet and part with your money.
They do not have your best interests at heart.
It’s all crap folks.
I realize that we need to purchase items from time to time.
But in a minimalist lifestyle you must think about everything you purchase.
Do I really need this item?
If yes, can I put it off for a bit and save the money to buy it?
Just think a little bit before mindlessly purchasing things.
How Do I Start Living A Minimalist Lifestyle?
There may not be a stock answer.
You have to decide what is important to you.
What are your core values?
What I would encourage you to do is to start sooner rather than later.
Pick a day and a room to start in.
Look at each item. Hold it. And ask what purpose it serves.
Have a Keep, Toss, and Donate pile.
Try to be objective. You may need a friend to help you. A lot of us have emotional attachments to certain items that make it difficult to get rid of them.
Make Minimalist Living A Priority Each Day
What can you do today to live a minimalist lifestyle?
Walk or bike to work.
Get rid of just one item that serves no purpose.
Turn off the television.
Clear off the dining room table.
Declutter your closet.
