If you’ve made it to this article, there is a very good chance that you, like me, enjoy the simple things in life.
You may not realize however the benefits go beyond just peace-of-mind.
Living a clutter-free life means that you will have a greater time, more money in the bank, and greater energy at the end of the day.
Moreover, living a simplified life means that you will be able to get enough time to focus on your health, relationships, and hobbies. At the same time, it may also allow you to cut back on the dreaded tasks such as cleaning or laundry.
And it’s not just about owning a tiny home.
In order to cut down on the clutter I’ve carefully curated some totally doable steps that you can do today to move your life from complex to simple and straightforward.
Get rid of all the junk
First of all, get rid of all the things that add toxicity in your life. This may include toxic people and toxic habits. Apart from that, it may also apply to material things.
Throw away all the clothes that do not fit you anymore. Also, get rid of everything that is broken. In case you have got multiple things, donate a few to those who might need them miserably.
Before buying something, ask yourself if you really need it
It is very tempting to spend money when you have it in your wallet. Money is the weakness of many people.
It is likely that you are someone who walks into a grocery store to buy detergent, and walks out with lotions, stationary, and clothes worth hundreds of dollars. In case this is you, ask yourself, “do I really need it?”, before buying something new.
Turn yourself into a handyman
One of the biggest perks of a simplified life is to be able to reuse things, especially those that can be recycled. This will help you save up more money while adding simplicity in your life.
Moreover, repairing things also comes with a great feeling of achievement. Hence, start taking simple matters in your own hands.
When buying something, invest in high quality
Buying a single T-shirt that is of high quality and can fit you for years to come, is worth more than a poorly stitched T-shirt that you cannot use after a month. Simplifying your life does not mean that you have to settle for cheaper stuff.
It simply means that you should know what is worth your investment. So consider investing into something that will actually benefit you.
Simplify your meals
According to a number of surveys, most people spend an unnecessary amount of money on their meals. Rather than going out to eat every day, learn to cook in a budget at your home.
Moreover, also learn to cook in a quantity that will not go to waste. Ultimately, this will allow you to buy the exact amount of groceries without wastage of any money.
Get Started Today!
When you start simplifying your life, you may be shocked at the amount of time that you will be able to reclaim.
This time could then be used for things you love! For me that includes hiking, learning to cook, planning a trip, and a lot more.
Get started today! Move toward simple and don’t delay!
