#momhack : always make sure you can close the top of the toy box with the toys literally thrown in. Not just strategically placed like a tetris game. Seriously, this saves so much time. If you can't close the lid of the toy box, get rid of toys. 😱 Yes, I just said that. With less toys, your kids will play so much better. They won't die of boredom, they will get creative. #TrustMe

They made up this game (which they’re calling Checkers) using their painted rocks and the geometric pattern on the couch pillows. I have absolutely no idea what the goal is and my oldest keeps changing the rules. 🤨 But they are enjoying themselves.... #letthembebored

Anyone else trying to be more minimal? We went back to school shopping yesterday and I’m overwhelmed with stuff! So today we’ll be cleaning out closets. Glamorous, I know! #keepitsimple #minimalism #simplicity #beautyinsimplicity #organize #minimize #wannabeminimalist #backtoschool

There are a lot of similarities in these pictures: ➡️similar haircut and style ➡️Glasses ➡️Similar smile ➡️Workout tanks But what is harder to see is the behind the events of each picture: ➡️Both pictures are taken after months of growing out a pixie. The picture on the left was a good solid 14 months of growing out a pixie, the picture on the right was 9 months. (Look at the jaw line of each picture... it's amazing! ) ➡️The picture on the left was taken before a good workout. That day I was having a good hair day and I didn't want to put my hair back because then it would be back until I washed it the next morning. On the LEFT: 2 day hair, yesterday my hair was pulled back for a 30 minute walk/ run in the heat, and today, on day 2, it was pulled back for bath time. 🤷‍♀️ ➡️Do you see the volume difference? Left was day 1 hair (actually 6 hour hair), Right was day 2 hair.... at least 34 hour hair. Having great hair that doesn't need constant maintenance isn't impossible. And just because you have a #mombun today doesn't mean you have to have one until you wash your hair again. Set yourself free from these limiting thoughts and beliefs. Better hair is waiting for you, along with peace of mind! You know where to turn😉

Every time I reduce their toys or clean their room, Trey notices. And not because he’s missing what I’ve tossed. He responds with “Thank you for cleaning my room! I love it! ”. Every. single. time. I rest better in a clean space, and so do they. We joined a 30 day challenge of decluttering last year and we are still on the journey of living with less. It’s been incredibly freeing and we’ve seen such a difference in the way our boys enjoy their space and even how they play. Caught this cutie reading in bed this morning, from a much reduced book shelf. Didn’t notice that he was missing 60% of his books, just enjoyed some quiet time reading. #boymom #livingwithless #wannabeminimalist

H O M E - it’s not a place it’s a feeling ✨🌿 . . Home is also where the snacks + plants are 👌🏼 . . . As we get closer & closer to being able to move into the bus (more to come tomorrow on the bus progress) I get a little anxious, wondering if I can REALLLLY live without so many of my little things! I have so many sentimental pieces and photos, but they can’t all come with us 😭 some days I really think I might lose my mind in such tiny quarters (200 sq ft 😅) but then other days I feel liberated by the fact that we won’t have a lot of stuff. Some days I’m a minimalist, some days I need all the things. It’s going to be such a huge shift when we move in. Feeling all the feelings. . . #smokylight #homedecor #alwaysinspiredbythesewalls #apartmenttherapy #greatinteriors #interiorstyling #minimalism #minimaliststyle #wannabeminimalist #skoolieconversion #movingintoabus #wearentdirtyhippies #wearecleanhippies #ifyoureadthesetagsiloveyou

When the house has a combination smell of dog🐶, pee, and vomit, 🤮, I practice a little self care with a little longer of a shower, hair washing, and application of some make up... Then buckle down and do the work! ➡️Grab the all purpose cleaner and microfiber cloth, and clean EVERYTHING. ➡️Fold the mountains of laundry ➡️Change lives ➡️Catch up on life With cuddles, play time, and laughter in between. 🤗

Has anyone ever made their own lounge for baby?! I just did! A blanket wedged between two sheets, rolled like a long sausage and shaped into an O...lay a soft blanket on top and stuff into a pillow case. (I used a pillow case and then a sham to be sure it was firm.) What do you think? Besides saving money, I don't have any baby items to get rid of....because they are sheets, blanket and pillow cases.... 🙌🙌🙌🙌👶❤️

Was talking to my mom a week ago on minimalism and how we (she and i) need to start getting rid of the things we collect, avoid plastics and re-use glass bottles and all that.. unfortunately I forgot that half my stuff (junk) is still at home. She takes my speech rather seriously and this is a result of her 'getting rid of junk' .. Duly noted that she started the process by getting rid MY junk!! . . She stitched her little friend a saree using "my" dupatta. And Rakhis made from things I collected during college for my DIY projects and stuff I wanted to use on my clothing . . Nevertheless I am proud of her.. . #minimalist #wannabeminimalist #reduce #reuse #mommee #junk #declutter #momdaughter #nowiammarried #giveaway #rakhi #diy #stitched #creative #indian #saree

If you’re having a MONDAY I invite you to do the following with me: place 1 drop of Lavender in one palm, and 1 drop of Stress Away in the other palm, rub them together, close your eyes, and inhale deeply three times. Then rub the extra oils over the back of your neck and chest (if you’re done being in the sun for the day). I really think that the deep breathing has as much to do with the calming effect as the oils do, and together they’re nearly magic. If you need some of these unicorn teardrops from heaven I might be able to point you in that direction. ;)

On the weekend we had a bric-a-brac stall at the markets! We are currently downsizing and we were able to offload some unused ‘stuff’ onto grateful strangers 💚. . The space + table was only $25. Our goal was to find new homes for things so that they’re not going to landfill (not today at any rate). We were literally giving things away for free... this photo was taken later in the morning; earlier we had so much to sell it didn’t even fit on the table 🤦🏼‍♀️. We don’t feel like hoarders but we still have an overabundance of unnecessary belongings. There will be further declutter when we get to the new house! . Things we sold included; jewellery, umbrellas, heat packs, bags, glassware, notebooks, picnic blankets, suspenders... things that didn’t sell included: platters, clothes, stockings, art and a baby play mat 😕. For us this was more effective than a garage sale but it would depend on where you live and what you’re trying to sell. We’ve been able to get rid of some furniture through Facebook and Gumtree 😀.

Thoughts while on a decluttering rampage this weekend: "Why do we have six extra pillows in the closet? We don't even have a guest room if we had guests to give these pillows to." "What kind of person needs EIGHT blender balls? I mean, cmon." "Why is the toaster on the counter? I make toast maybe once a month. Maybe." I feel a million pounds lighter. Our trashcan and goodwill pile are a million pounds heavier. 😊 #Decluttering #WannaBeMinimalist

We need to talk about the soft toy situation, what’s the deal with them? Do they multiply in the night? Are they plotting a coup to take over? I think I’ve only ever actually bought a couple over the years and yet there’s somewhere in the region of 50,000. Decluttering is an endless battle when you have small people about. #softtoystakeover #toystoyseverywhere #theresworsethings #decluttering #wannabeminimalist #mamalife #mumproblems #tidyingup

Want to buy less and save more?! . One very simple tip is to plan out your purchases. Whenever I think of something I need or want to buy, it goes on a list. That way, I can research the items and prices, and prioritize which items need to be purchased first. If something is not on my list, I don’t buy it unless it is a true need! . My spending habits have greatly improved using this system. Oftentimes I’ll even discover I don’t need an item if it sits on my list for a long time. Whether you’re hoping to be more minimalist, looking to save money, or some combination of the two (me 🙋‍♀️!), purchasing with purpose is a big help. . P.S. How cute are these sticky notes from @ohhellostationery? They make budgeting even more fun!

IT’S FRIDAYYY & I’m so excited! Had a great workout at @madgreenville -Heading to @greenvillezoo for a concert- Then a birthday bonfire! I do miss this little pup when I have a full night like tonight, though. 🐶 What I’m super excited about, though, is the purge of our house that’s starting this weekend. I really want to start taking on a more minimalist mindset so we’ll be trashing, donating, or selling all the things we really don’t need in our home. Let’s get rid of that clutteeerrrr! 👏 Next step is just to convince my husband to move to a one or two bedroom home 😂 What are you weekend plans?? Any life altering decisions happening for you like I seem to be doing too much of lately?!

minimalismwithyarn

I'm not going to claim I know everything about keeping it simple and being a (wannabe) minimalist bc I'm still learning. I'm learning as I go, giving myself little reminders while sharing a little bit at a time what I do know. Most of the time tho, I don’t know what it is that I want to say exactly. I have all these thoughts but the words aren’t sufficiently forming. I’m using the concept of minimalism to help me simplify things. If I’m stuck formulating thoughts into actions, I refer back to how I should keep it simple. How can I simplify this to be able to clarify my intentions? What are my intentions? Now I’m just thinking too broadly again… Focus. What do I want to say? What do I want to do? — Blanket made adapted from my MAYCHE crochet pattern (found in link in bio)

As a busy, work at home mom that has been a chauffeur all summer for a family member, I have had to modify and bring my office in a bag. ➡️Appointment book that I sit down on sundays and schedule out my week. This one I found randomly at @target . I haven't seen it since at target tho! 🙄 ➡️Supplements for hair growth. Because let's just say, if you are my VIP, I try to help you as much as I can 😉 ➡️Happy thoughts journal with colored pencils. Because you never know when a crazy idea is going to hit and you want to write it down. And sometimes, you just need to color🤷‍♀️ ➡️My daily goals notebook. Every. Single. Day. I write out my goals and current numbers so I see the progress towards said goal. ➡️Books. Part of my goal book club and my team's job club.

So true. In life ... and when it comes to organizing your craft space. You can't have EVERYTHING, every tool you love out at the ready ... otherwise you would have no room to work! #Repost @landeelu ・・・ While reading the book Essentialism, I learned that the word “priority” came into being in the 1400s. The word “priorities” didn’t exist until the 1900s when people decided to start making more than one thing THE MOST IMPORTANT THING. How does that make any sense? 😊 #organization #minimalist #minimalism #minimalistlifestyle #minimaliststyle #lessismore #wannabeminimalist #cleartheclutter #cleartheclutterandbreathe

How does that make any sense? • • • Minimizing my possessions has created so much clarity around what I feel is important. My priority is my family. That’s it. And everything else either contributes to adding value to my family or takes away from it. Having less possessions has made me realize how distracting possessions (wanting them, working to be able to buy them, being jealous other people have them, maintaining them, organizing them, etc) takes away from time and energy that should be directed toward my family. I’m slowly but surely pivoting and every day I try to keep my priority straight. • • • If you want to join my decluttering/minimizing free e-mail series, just click the link in my profile!

This book. ➡️If you are a mom who feels stressed, burnt out, hopeless, this book is for you! ➡️This book changed my whole view. It came me passion to look for something more. Not for recognition. But because I wanted to enjoy my life and truly be present. Not rushing to the next thing. Not juggling schedules and missing out on time with the kids. If you are a mom, you need to read this book! Unfortunately my copy died in the flood, but don't worry, I'll be purchasing another copy soon!

After sharing in my previous 2 posts how vintage and Minimalism go together beautifully, I have to report this does not hold true if you're a vintage seller. I can't seem to make Minimalism happen in a home where the inventory I sell online lives with me....in a condo...with no basement.....or outside storage. 😏 As I said in my previous post, blank walls a chair and a lamp is not enough to make me happy, but the clutter that results from my business falls on the opposite end of the spectrum. And what I really need is some peaceful.......uncluttered space .............🌱 🤗...............sigh. . Have any of you been able to accomplish this seemingly impossible task?

Spotted: one crashed out little man and his ‘new’ camel I got from the op shop for $1 🐫 Another op shop purchase! 🙊 At times I really don’t do well at being a minimalist but it was too cute to pass up! Buying second hand is fantastic but realistically we all need to consume less new and second hand because as the second market thrives. It provides people the opportunity to easily sell their goods and go and more more new! (When something goes out of fashion etc). As an aside thank you to everyone who came and supported my market stall yesterday, you’re awesome. 👌🏼

My Mum found my old Spice Girls backpack, and my old Barbie Walkman and headphones. (Walkman not pictured, as toddler has claimed it as her own and is using it as a handbag?! 🙈) 🔸 Isn't it crazy that this was used for maybe just a year, and then has spent the next 20 years just sat in my parent's house waiting for me to send it to landfill? 😕 🔸 This is why I'm trying to bring less into my house: using less resources, creating less clutter, eliminating the unnecessary. 🔸 If you haven't yet done the #30dayminimalismchallenge, give it a go!! #lifechanging

Sometimes people wonder “Why pay so much for oils just to make your house smell good? Can’t you just buy a candle?” Well yes, you can. However, the amount of research that’s coming to light lately on artificial scents is concerning. That’s why I prefer my oils. I also get unbeatable therapeutic health benefits from diffusing (and applying/ingesting) them. Did you know your sense of smell is directly connected to the part of our brain that controls emotions? Could you buy cheaper oils if you only want your house to smell good? Sure! However, you don’t have the guarantee that they have nothing added to them (guys, even the words “100% pure” on a label can be a lie these days) so you could still be breathing in the nasty chemicals you’re trying to avoid. Also, I can tell you there won’t be the added health benefits from them! I know this because I’ve tried the other, cheaper oils too. No shame if that’s what you’re using! But I share the info because someone shared with me, and before I had no idea. Education is my goal. ❤️

Today is a rest day in my workout program, so I’m taking full advantage of that, and taking a hot minute to enjoy a cup of coffee ☕️ . I’m also organizing our baby’s “nursery” 💙 This has been a big process. We normally keep the baby in our room for the first 6-12 months, but my husband has a whole nook of our bedroom devoted to an office space so he can study for chiropractor school. I didn’t want to disrupt that, so we decided to transform our walk-in closet! . We had all my husband’s things on one side and all of mine on the other, and LOTS of boxes in between. So we sorted out what wasn’t necessary. Made donation bags. Put items in storage bins. FINALLY went through boxes from 2007 that had grad school papers in it that I just do NOT need anymore. And we took out shelves and cleared a space for this sweet babe 💙 . It looks like a perfect fit so far, and we still have plenty of space for our clothes on the other side! Plus we will be able to close the door when he’s sleeping and not disturb him 😴 . There still need to be a few finishing touches...perhaps wall decal stickers that are easy to remove, and some art work...has anyone else done a closet nursery or small space nursery? Any tips??

We have moved! We are living in box jungle in our old house and I’m not planning to unpack, most of them, till we move to our new house (when we sell and find a home). ***________________*** When I was single, and every time I moved, I vowed to live minimalist lifestyle and I was convinced, I was living it....till I had to move again. Oh, boy, I’ve had too many boxes 😁 Now, I do the same. This time, I’m taking it seriously. Four purses for four seasons, twenty pairs of shoes (I don’t really have explanation why it has to be 20. Let’s say it’s just an auspicious number 😁) I’m not buying any more kitchen gadgets, gardening stuff (I suck at it anyway 🤨), pillows and May is not getting any more stuffed animals Period! So, if you see me or May in same outfits on the pictures, all the time, you will know that we are on a right track 😉 ***________________*** Have you ever vowed something and succeeded or not succeeded? Does anyone live a minimalist lifestyle? Would appreciate any advice ☺️ . . . . . . . . #justmoved #wannabeminimalist #sanfrancisco #sfbayarea #visitcalifornia #visitsanfrancisco

In our house, we are HUGE fans of both Disney and conservation/sustainable living. So there is nothing better than to hear that #disneyparks is taking on this huge conservation effort. They are eliminating plastic straws, stirrers, and polystyrene cups from all of their parks! As well as making an 80% reduction in plastics used in their hotel rooms and plastic shopping bags. This is music to our Mickey-shaped Mouse ears!! Way to go @disneyparks ‼️• • • #sustainableliving #wastefree #sustainablemom #wannabeminimalist #sustainableparenting #zeroplastic #loveourplanet

One of the most unexpected benefits of minimizing so many of my possessions is the clarity I have gained about what is truly important to me. • • When I first started I was just sick of the time I was wasting looking for lost items. I was exasperated by my overstuffed cabinets and closets. I was done sifting through unused, unloved items to get to what I actually needed. • • And while I have essentially taken care of those issues I now realize that I had been living in autopilot. I was buying things because I thought that was what was expected of me. I was cramming my family’s schedule full because I thought that was “what a good mom did.” I had no idea what I actually loved and valued. • • But now, having taken away so many of the distractions in my life, the important things have risen to the top. Time with my family. Experiences over things. Reading instead of shopping. Going for a walk with my husband rather than checking my blog stats. • • I thought I would just enjoy some extra space in my home. I had no idea the value of the extra space that would be created in my head and my heart. • • (Photo taken at Stewart Falls at Sundance up Provo Canyon during the Anderson Family reunion. So pretty and an amazing hike!) • • • #declutter #livesimply #getorganized #organization #minimalist #minimalism #minimalistlifestyle #minimaliststyle #lessismore #wannabeminimalist #bemorewithless #cleartheclutter #cleartheclutterandbreathe

I spent about 20 minutes during the kids’ rest time today doing some quick decluttering (I focused on bathrooms cabinets and hall closets) thanks to some inspiration from @minimalistmomlife Sometimes all you need is someone to tell you how to get started. My goal was 30 minutes, but then I had to settle a squabble between the older two and by then the baby was up. If you have older ones who rest, but don’t sleep, how do you keep them doing so peacefully?

Hello! I wanted to take an opportunity to introduce myself and explain why I started this account. I’m Amy! Tolerant wife (ha ha) to my awesome husband and mom to a perfect 4-1/2 year old boy. I work full-time in the hospitality industry, and care very much about the environment and taking care of our planet. As many moms may know, combining the task of being environmentally conscientious and taking care of a young child’s needs can sometimes be challenging. So I thought I would create this account to share some of the ways that I have found to make it work. I will share some of the ways that I have found to incorporate sustainability in to our lives without too much of a headache or inconvenience. And I would love to learn any tips and tricks that other may have to do the same! ❤️🌎• • • #motherhood #sustainableliving #wastefree #sustainablemom #wannabeminimalist #sustainableparenting #zeroplastic #loveourplanet

Six months ago, I took a bunch of crap up to the attic with the intention of getting rid of most of it. What I didn't think about was how much work it would be to go through all of those bags. So, they stayed up there. But the cool thing is, now I can switch out the toys every couple of weeks and it keeps it fresh and exciting for my kids. They forgot about this marble maze until a couple months ago when they suddenly decided they needed it again. So today I finally caved (mainly because it's been hot and I didn't want to rummage through bag after bag in the uninsulated attic looking for it) and told them to pick a toy to trade; they happily obliged. (I still totally plan on getting rid of the other bags of toys they haven't asked about since December... I guess when it gets cooler around here. Maybe. 😅) . . . #rotatingtoys #minimaltoys #toysthatteach #learningallthetime #homeschoolcollective #homeeducator #wannabeminimalist #riverjeremiah #creativelearning #marblemaze

Who else would love to live a minimalist lifestyle? I know I would. I read the book 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying' by Marie Kondo a while back and it totally changed my mindset. If you haven't already read it, I highly recommened it. While it is of course difficult to be a minimalist with five small children, I have definitely taken Marie Kondo's method on board and as a result our house is a little less cluttered than it once was. I still have a lot to learn but I'm determined to get back in the zone ✌ P.S please tag me in any good minimalist accounts so I can follow for inspo 😘 . . #thelifechangingartoftidyingup #mariekondo #minimalism #wannabeminimalist #motheroffive #oureverydaymoments #livesimply #mumswithcameras #nursery #kidsbedroom #fionawalker #sleepyheadofsweden #blinds2go #featherlightshade #jellycat

Packing 6 people for a two week road trip is no small feat. We really stretched our wanna be minimalism and managed to fit everything in the van without the extra trailer. 🙌🏽Good thing, We hit some big monsoons in Northern AZ. 🌧 . . . #howieroll #roadtrip #wannabeminimalist #vanlifediaries #howierolltothemidwest #travelwithkids #arizona🌵 #pitstop #packinglight #exploremoretogether #ontheroadagain #summerroadtrip

Today I’ve been researching what is called Project 333. Has anyone heard of it? It’s 33 items of clothing for 3 months. I’m not 100% there, but I have two full totes of empty hangers that at one time had clothes on them! 🙌🏼 #simpleliving #wannabeminimalist #project333

These three know how to build me up, make me laugh, give me alllll the feels. 🤗 They also know how to make ne feel sucker-punched, helpless, and frustrated beyond belief. 🙄 Because of them, I have learned to fight for something more. More than the hustle and bustle that most Americans consider normal. And also, because of them, I have learned to change my routines and habits. Some habits have had to take a back seat (such as my intense fitness regimens) that I miss. But other habits (such as washing my hair every day) I don't miss... at. All. Thanks to my favorite dry shampoo that isn't flammable (have you met my unpredictable kids?? I don't want anything flammable🔥 in my hair! ) I can go 3-5 days without a good hair wash. (Oh, and this dry shampoo can be free for a very limited time! ) What routines and habits save YOU time and energy in thr mom life? 🤔 Today, I'm going to focus on the happy emotions these kids bring to my life and not the frustrations!😍

Since I started listening to @theminimalists podcast this week I’ve purged another 7 giant bags!! I did most of this by going to rooms that had already been de cluttered. It amazes me how listening to some wise words has changed my mindset a little bit more. I’m ready to let go of so many more things! These will be taken for donation on Monday. #decluttering #wannabeminimalist #minimalismjourney

My muscles were screaming at me this morning from the work I put in this week. So I switched it up and got my Yoga on!! Now I feel great and I’m relaxed for the drive. 685 miles ahead, we are HOME bound. . 1st trip home this year since we left the beautiful Okinawa, Japan. . . #yogawannabe #stretchyourbody #stretchyourmind #maxinista #milsolife #momlifebalance #balancedlife #homesweethome #ombres #wannabeminimalist

Crazy how God works! But it took me to NOT having a full time job anymore to realize the need to budget better, the need to live with contentment, and the NEED of more of HIS WAYS rather than “my” ways.... . . We’ve always heard how comparison steals our joy.... but what about how it affects our finances? Ever thought of that? If we aren’t grateful for the now and what we have NOW we will always feel the need for Moré and possibly let comparison make us feel that what we have, who we are and where we are isn’t “enough”.... IT’S A TRAP! . . . @rachelcruze thanks for the reminder! #budgetingissexy #lol #focusginafocus #wannabeminimalist #trying #stilLEARNING #grateful #Jesusleadtheway #gritandgrace #armywifelife🇺🇸 #teachinginTRUTH

It was a long effing day. 😴 I lie... Week. Minimising your whole life into just a few boxes is exhausting, but so rewarding in the end. I've come to realise that success does not equate to the amount of things you own, and owning less feels pretty damn freeing. Here's to discovering the world of minimalism about 2ish years ago, and the path its put me on. 👣 I still have a way to go... Ps. The disaster in the background is part of the process. 😅 . . . #selfie #tired #longday #blackandwhite #wannabeminimalist #roughday #downsizing #simplelife #minimal #simplicity

The name of today's game was "HUMILITY"!!! If I've never turned the other cheek before...I just did that, all of that! Sometimes you have to take one for the team, especially when you're the only member. #lifelessonslearned #growth #character #integrity #teamofme #savemejeebus lol!

I don’t have too much decor around as I err towards minimalism (except I’ve not been very minimalistic since having a girl 😬). Maybe that’s why George often goes and pulls this #fakeflower out of its little vase thing at the front door. #imnotgoodwithcaptions #toddlerlife #wedoowntoys . . . . . #mydreamyeverydaylife #ourboygeorge #homeday #wannabeminimalist #happymonday #toddlerfashion #cottonon #zara #motherhood #mothersofinstagram #sahm #stayathomemom #mondaysarentsobad #mondayrecoveryday

Today self-care looks like finally going through ALL of my clothes and deciding what goes to ThredUP, what goes to Goodwill, and which T-shirts are too sentimental to part with and will go into a bin on the top shelf of a closet 😂 #wannabeminimalist #selfcare #slpselfcare #summer #slpeeps #schoolslp

Hubby and I were talking last night about how our Friday and Saturday nights have changed since having kids. Gone are the days when we would go out clubbing or even regularly make it to the movies. Instead, we now look forward to Friday nights because it’s family games night. After dinner we pull out a board game or puzzle and the four of us sit down and play before it’s time for the kids to go bed. It’s strange but some of the funniest memories I have with my babies have been made while playing uno or Pictionary, and I truly do look forward to it every week! It makes me think of when I was young and how I grew up playing board games with my family. Even better is that some of our board games are from when hubby and I were children... Guess Who with the torn box is at least 20 years old, Connect 4 with missing pieces has to be at least 15! It doesn’t matter that they’re old and shabby, the fun is still the same 💚 I love the simple things and the quality time spent together talking and laughing. So even though like many others I’d love to be a minimalist (and I’m definitely making progress in that direction), there are things I will continue to collect, because it’s those things that help make the memory 💚 How do others spend their Friday nights with kids? What ordinary family rituals/routines do you have? #fortheloveofboardgames #inwiththeold #ifitstillworksuseit #familytime #makingmemories #fridaynight #familyrituals #familyroutine #gamesnight #cheapfun #frugalfun #budgetfun #parenthood #parentlife #ecofriendlyfamily #zerowaste #wannabeminimalist

A few months back I pledged not to buy myself any new clothes for all of 2018, and instead #shopmywardrobe. Watching the @truecostmovie played a big part in this decision: seeing the devastating effects of #fastfashion on so many people from all walks of life. 🔸 I thought I'd provide an update of how I'm getting on half way through the year... 🔸 I bought clothes... 👎😦 🔸 I bought a £7 second-hand Miss Selfridge dress from eBay for my brother-in-law's wedding. I'll wear it for a couple of events & then relist it. I bought three bargain pairs of second-hand yoga trousers (again from eBay for a total of £5.50)! One of the pairs cost £50 new, so I'll be listing them back on there to make a profit. And finally, I bought a brand new summer dress ( #thatebaydress) from an eBay store. My only new item of clothing of 2018, and I do feel guilty about it as it is definitely not the most sustainably made. However, as a breastfeeding mum, my wardrobe was severely lacking feeding-friendly and cool (this heatwave is no joke) summer clothes. I looked for #preloved first, but couldn't find what I wanted. 🔸 So there we have it. One new purchase & two second-hand. Not perfect, but not too bad 👍 #progressnotperfection Quote by @joshua_becker at Becoming Minimalist.

So I am a gluten free (not by choice btw) vegetarian who is wanting to do everything I can do reduce the amount of plastic I use and the amount of waste I produce (💩 .. yes I'm 5 and no I dont actually mean poop lol) it's a fact that our planet isnt doing so well, our oceans are flooded with plastic and our animals are dying more and more. We need to do something and take some action! So if anyone has any tips for a beginner to cut out waste and plastic, please share! 😍🌍 • • • • #effyourbeautystandards #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving #zeroplastic #vegetarian #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #savetheplanet #saveourplanet #minimalism #wannabeminimalist #savetheanimals #alternativegirl #vanlife #vancouvermodel #vancouver

A more simpler life.  One that has less stress.  Less obligations. Less clutter. Along with that comes increased laughter.  More nights on the porch. Relaxed meal times. Daily family walks. I truly believe removing the clutter and obligations ➡️ more laughter and peace in our household. Because of this belief, this year has been focused on removing the clutter and finding more empty time. 🌸Removing physical clutter: have actual decluttering days on my schedule to help clean out my house. 🌸Finding systems that make every day to-dos a habit vs one more thing on that to-do list. 🌸Use products that save time.  The past 2 days I have gotten out of bed and walked downstairs completely ready for the day… in 10 minutes.  All because I didn't have to wash my hair. I showered.🚿 But you know those super sexy shower caps? Yea. Those things are 👌. ➡️I do use dry shampoo every once in a while, but when you use products that help to naturally balance oils(I used to have to wash every. Single. Day.  Due to oil) you can skip days as needed. I am in no way perfect.  I have lots more decluttering to go.  But I'm on my way. It's like running 🏃‍♀️a marathon for the first time. You start off slow.  But it's daily commitment. It's a long term training plan to retrain your mind and habits to lead a more abundant life. With less.
