Here’s the thing I’ve realized with time. More things don’t mean happiness. In fact, for me personally I think I’ve realized more things mean less happiness. Hang in there with me. I’ve got three kids worth of things, shoes, laundry, toys, and clutter. The more things they have means more work for me; more cleaning, directing them to pick up, spending time organizing, or spending time overwhelmed by the mess. Heading into the holidays I’m in a minimalist mission. This actually doesn’t come very natural to me, as much as I dislike clutter I sinfully like “things.” However, I know I’m happier with less soo...HERE. WE. GO. I’m not trying to go barren, but I want to go useful. Do I NEED it, do they NEED it, is it just a space filler? That type of thing. If you have any tips for me drop them below. 👇🏼 I’ve even gone as far as returning some Christmas gifts I had already gotten because I knew they would just end up being shelf sitters after a few weeks.

Deep cleaning the kitchen today and parting with those things that no longer serve us. Pyrex is life and brings me joy. All of this stays. #pyrexhoarder #wannabeminimalist #allthepyrex #pyrexrainbow #grannygoals #donttouchmydishes

Fall is so beautiful here in Kelowna 🍁 it is such a perfect time to shed some bad habits, make some change and create new goals 🍃 . . I have been purging recently, trying to reduce my "stuff". I have been consistently selling/recycling/donating/etc at least 3 items a day... slowly but surely, I'll get there 😼 . . . photo: @ka_rissa88

My mom buys a “buffet” as a wedding gift for all of her daughters. This was supposed to be a tv stand but I loved it so much we are calling it the “Buffet”! #homedecorinspo #october🍁 #falldecor

a few of you said you would be interested in how we’re doing the minimizing things so here it goes!⠀ ⠀ I broke it down into to parts: minimizing and then money making.⠀ ⠀ part 1: #minimizing⠀ ⠀ I treat minimizing our home as if we’re going to sell everything and move into an RV. RVs are small and you don’t have room for as much crap, so you get really particular about what you surround yourself with.⠀ ⠀ To start, pick a small area, like a utensil drawer or coat closet. I like to stick to doing little areas/zones at a time. I don’t get overwhelmed and I feel more accomplished when I finish that area. ⠀ ⠀ when starting to minimize an area, ask yourself:⠀ + Why do I have this?⠀ + Does it make my life easier? ⠀ + If I were shopping today, would I purchase it?⠀ + does it bring me joy?⠀ bonus question: if you were moving in an RV, would you bring it?⠀ ⠀ If you answer no to most of those questions, it’s probably time to seriously consider getting rid of it.⠀ ⠀ After I’ve gone through an area, I sort everything into piles.⠀ + donate ⠀ + trash⠀ + sell⠀ + keep⠀ ⠀ If I’m getting rid of something I know family or friends would be interested in, I ask them if they want it. If they don’t, then I just set aside to be donated or sell. ⠀ ⠀ And ideally your keep pile is only things you use + bring you joy. And it’s significantly smaller than when you stated. ⠀ ⠀ I’m already noticing areas that I organize + minimized are easier to keep clean. It’s also encouraging me not to bring more into our home.⠀ ⠀ @msrachelhollis mentioned in her Made for More documentary that a cluttered⠀ home breeds a cluttered business breeds a cluttered heart (or something similar to that).⠀ ⠀ And she’s right, at least for me.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #minimizing #minimalist #minimalism #minimalistmom #wannabeminimalist #minimalisthome #minimalistlifestyle #minimalistlife #minimalistliving #simplicity #lessismore #simpleliving #homemaker #konmari #simplemoments #konmarimethod #momlife #madeformore #last90days #motherhood #stayathomemom #girlmom #motherhustler #workfromhome #naturalmom #essentialoils #youngliving #sustainableliving #cleanhouse⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Decorating and daydreaming of the holiday fun we’ll have in the years to come with our boy. 🕸☠️👻 . (it’s all the same as last year, I’ve finally gotten it through my head I don’t need to buy something new for every occasion.🤯 #wannabeminimalist)

Oh, heeey! It’s just me and my S3 (Stainless Steel Straw). This little daddy gets cray-zay attention everywhere we go. People want to know, the what and the why. I keep him in my purse, tucked away in my "say hell naw to plastic straws and plastic cutlery" pouch. Anytime I am out, I refuse a plastic straw and pull this little daddy out instead. (I’ll share my pouch and it’s contents with you on another post). I am on a mission to live a less wasteful lifestyle. I am not going to say zero-waste (yet) because…my life is not quite ready for that full-blown pressure and commitment BUT it is important that I do my part as much as possible in caring for the earth. For the past 4 months I have chosen to use less, one-time use items, especially plastic. It’s polluting our world, big time you guys! Oh! I got my buddy, S3 from @thezeromarket. #lesswaste #plasticsucks #reusablestraws #littlechangesmatter #itsmyworldtoo #lowwaster #plasticstrawrefuser #browngirlswhoreduce #bustingthroughstereotypes #reducereuse

Another round of @mariekondo 'Spark Joy'. 🌻Guys...I have to admit, my house is messy, I have way too many things in my house, way too much clutter that I can't let go, or find a system that keeps me organized or give me the motivation to keep me organized. 🌻I thought I got rid of a lot when I first read the book a few months back..But feel like I am back to square one..#clutterbreeds 🌻So here's hoping that this book will live up to its hype and give me the much needed push in the right direction.. 🌻Please feel free to share if you have any tried and tested methods to keep on top of your clutter and your house.. #sparkjoy #wannabeminimalist #minimalism #sustainableliving #sustainablechoices #organization #progressnotperfection #gracenotperfection #toomuchstuff #mentalclarity #motivation #unclutterit #clutterbreeds #productivity #intentionalliving #mariekondo #backtosquareone #minimisinggame #tips #hacks #needallthehelp

Super excited to be starting my third round of the #minsgame with @mffox615 ! It’s a really great way to eliminate things you don’t need without feeling overwhelmed. I did this challenge twice last year and loved it. The beginning is always the easiest 😜 #goodbyebook #wannabeminimalist #simplify #lessismore #30dayminimalismchallenge

It’s become way too cold for my lovely tomatoes to fully ripen. Will I throw them away?? Hell naw! Some, I will ripen to red a deliciousness in a brown paper bag, right on my counter. However, my big plan is to make salsa verde and use these babies in place of tomatillos. Here’s my recipe: •Roast 1 lb of tomatoes and cut into chunks •1/2 of a white onion •2 cloves of garlic •1/2 bushel of cilantro •2 jalapeños (seeded if need be) •juice of 1/2 of a lime •salt to taste •Throw everything in a blender & blend to desired consistency After that, pour it in a bowl and dip baby, dip!! #gardeningsituations #wastenot #greentomatoes #browngirlswhogarden

Anyone else here a wannabe minimalist 🙋‍♀️ When I was first exposed to oils I wondered how bringing dozens of little bottles into our home was going to help my minimalism journey, but I knew we were desperate for support in various areas and I was desperate to get these into our home. It’s been a year and a half now, and as I look back, I realize how much these bottles (and really, the non-toxic lifestyle) have played into furthering our minimalist journey. . . I wish I had kept all the things we tossed over the past year just so I could share a visual of the boxes and boxes worth of toxic products, expired junk, and stuff I bought for that one time use, all because these bottles replaced them. The fact that a single bottle of peppermint that fits in my pocket can give me around 90 servings of any combination of tummy settling, muscle relief, flavoring, or house scenting is pretty remarkable. . . The one thing about these oils that can derail me from our minimalist journey? They are for using up. Not for hoarding. I can get so stingy with those last drops- anyone else? I’ve had to train myself to use them up! There’s too much goodness in those bottles to let even a drop sit unused on a shelf. Where there is an empty EO bottle, there is probably a healthier person 😆

I have these metal lockers in my entranceway. They are perfect for dumping bags in and hiding the general mess that comes with a family of five. Turns out they’re also perfect for playing magnatiles on too. Boom 💥. Vertical play scapes are so good for kids’ development, gets them reaching, developing their shoulder muscles in different ways, all good pre-writing skills. Plus, it’s a bit fun to change things up every now and again with the @magnatiles play 😊 . #play #playallday #playistheway #freeplay #creativeplay #openendedplay #playislearning #otmum #otmom #occupationaltherapist #magnatiles #homeorganization #familyoffive #hideallthejunk #somuchstuff #storagetips #happyhome #organizedhome #wannabeminimalist

Packing up for a weekend in Chicago and wondering.... how many pairs of shoes is too many?? Shared some of my dilemma in my stories, so weigh in over there... because no, this picture doesn’t show all of them! 🤣 I’m ridiculously happy though that it’s finally cool enough to bust out my cozy sweaters, tall boots, and aaaalllll the scarves. Taking a mix of handmade and RTW clothes, and glad I had a backup never blogged dress, because the one I was making needs more work. 🤦🏼‍♀️ But honestly, I don’t even care, because I’m excited to get away for a weekend with no kids.... can we say shower in peace????!!! 🛁 • • • #diamondbound #capsulewardrobe #slowfashion #sewingblogger #sewingforwomen #imakemyownclothes #makeyourown #fallfashion #fallstyle #wannabeminimalist #outfitinspo #whatiwore #midweststyle #cozystyle #outfitoftheday #handmadewardrobe #capsulewardrobe #coloryourlife #bohostyle #sweaterweather

Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance. Dishes need washing, garbage needs emptying, laundry needs washing, meals need cooking, etc. Etc. Etc. We all know we have MORE than enough to go around. The question I have for you today is, do you have more maintenance to do than you want? See some of it is unavoidable, but not all of it is. And every object or activity we add into our lives requires a measure of maintenance. For me this would include baaaags of yarn because I like to crochet every once in a while. Which takes up an entire eighth of all my storage space. Maintaining one ball of yarn versus bags of yarn is so much simpler, and makes sense in my situation. So that's one thing That will be leaving my house in the next 2 months. Extra yarn. What have you added into your life that requires more maintenance than you desire to give to it? I encourage you today, let go of it, and enjoy the clutter free space it leaves behind :) ❤️ #wannabeminimalist #simpleliving #declutteryourlife #declutter

Does anyone else out there feel totally overwhelmed by all the junk and clutter around the house? . I’ve really been noticing lately how my physical environment can so quickly zap my energy, joy, and motivation! . That’s why I am really excited about this de-cluttering challenge from @mindfulmissmason! . Dividing a big project into small, quick tasks is such a powerful way to make BIG changes. I just did Day 1 in about 5 minutes! . Anyone else interested in participating? Click through to her page and check out the details! Tag me if you decide to do it! It would be fun to do this together and share progress along the way! . #overwhelmed #myhouseisamess #savingmysanity #stressreduction #wannabeminimalist #minimalist #collectmemoriesnotthings

I mentioned in my last post about the #last90days. Basically it’s a challenge put on by Rachel Hollis for the end of the year HUSTLE. ⠀ ⠀ We sometimes get in the mindset of “oh I’ll start next year” and essentially waste 92 days. What if we started working towards our #newyearsresolutions NOW?! Imagine what we could accomplish!⠀ ⠀ Every week Rachel sends us an email full of encouragement, videos and tasks to do each day. (#fivetothrive) I’m also in a local mastermind group full of badass women, meeting weekly to support each other. 👊🏼⠀ ⠀ Last week I set my goals:⠀ + hit the next rank in my business⠀ + pay off 2 credit cards ⠀ Both TOTALLY scary yet I KNOW we can do this.⠀ ⠀ Today I planned our October #budget, wrote down any expenses I know we will incur (baby needs mittens and I need an adjustment) and figured out how much we can put towards our cards. I’m also still selling stuff on the marketplace and Mercari so that “extra” money will go straight towards the cards. By December 31st, they’ll be paid off. ⠀ ⠀ I also wrote down my business #goals for October and broke it down weekly. I have an Essential Oils 101 class in the works for this month if you want added!⠀ ⠀ ON TOP of allllll of this, I started Liift4. And I dig it. 💪🏼⠀ ⠀ Oh yeah, and I have an almost 7 month old. Who is getting the hang of naps finally and gets all of my attention when I’m not hustling. ⠀ ⠀ It’s a crazy end of the year but I’m excited for the possibilities and to see where we’re at as a family December 31st. 💗⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #hustlemode #hustle #momboss #stayathomemom #sahm #newmom #girlmom #debtfreedom #debtfree #essentialoils #youngliving #ivfmom #ivfsuccess #planning #raedunn #momlife #motherhood #thisismotherhood #liift4 #october #minimalism #wannabeminimalist #minimalist #homeopathy #firsttimemom

Over 3 years ago my sister and I sorted through our moms life after a very sudden illness and quick passing. Sometimes it still seems like a dream. I still have her contact in my phone because if seems weird to delete it. Yesterday I decided to start unpacking some items and came across some beauties that need framing and to be displayed. Remember that show years ago on TLC where the guy would help people purge their messes? I recall him saying that it's fine to have sentimental things but they should have a proper place. So to that end I am working. Might even join my girls @calli_sparrowandlilies and @katiefrazerwilson on this project of capsule wardrobing (eek could I actually?)... But one thing's for sure, I want the things that are filled with memory and meaning - including people - to have their proper place in my life. And yes, I'm my mom's twin. It's kinda weird.... . . #nostalgia #capsulewardrobe #purging #projectorganization #wannabeminimalist

I spent a lot of time purging clothes, organizing my closet and getting ready for fall 🍂 I realized that I have too many clothes and need to stop buying ‘just because’. I don’t think I could ever be a 100% minimalist but this is a start, and buying with a purpose is key- so let’s save those dollars for travel instead! #neutrals #sweaterweather #fall #wardrobe #wannabeminimalist #closetpurge #savingfortravel #donate #upcycle

Day 29 of the #minsgame #nearlytherenow lots of children's things that weren't ever really for the children but were more for me. I started collecting the #barbie #princessesoftheworld dolls 15 years ago. They have NEVER been on display. They have always lived boxes up. I had 14/21. I'm letting go of 6. I'd still like 4 of the ones I don't have (India, Incas, Navajo and Nile if anyone wants to drop one off). If I sell these I might look into buying the others I love. BUT. They MUST be displayed. I need to figure out if this is doable. Space isn't exactly abundant here. 2 Star Wars dolls from the films we don't mention in our house are also going. 1 pair of wee trousers and 20 books, mostly children's ones that Wren doesn't read much or we don't like the stories and what they imply/teach and a couple of mine that I've read and not enjoyed/won't read again. Feeling panicky about the Barbies. I keep telling myself that I wouldn't choose to buy these ones now. That I've never displayed them. That Wren/Rohan do not need them. That I won't miss them. It's still so hard #everylittlestep #smallsteps #journeytominimalism #minimalistjourney #lettinggo #becomingminimalist #wannabeminimalist #clearingout #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #lessstuffmorelife #lessstuff #lessstuffmoremeaning #freedominless

TO DO LIST : Bright white paint ( right now it’s faded green ) more house plants to warm this space up 🌱. A basket for a few of Donovan’s toys... & then try my hardest to not to over decorate this room and keep it minimal. 👐🏻 . . It’s not my natural tendency to keep things simple, but it’s what I know my brain needs in this season. Less clutter, less stuff that needs my attention. It’s hard to do when my job requires I thrift store shop weekly. I’m always walking past cool vintage pieces that I don’t need talking my self out of hoarding velvet chairs and random wall art. #thestruggleisreal #keepingitfunctional . . . #hurshhomeca #minimal #wannabeminimalist #keepitclean #livingspace #beforeandafter #beforepaint

Today donations - pair of white crop pants (too big and kids with white clothing? Like a moth to the flame) - x2 pair of shoes: too small - singlet Top: hate thin straps - pink Tshirt:has a small hole and I had a huge fight when wearing it. I cannot wear the Tshirt without being reminded 🙄 - Black crossbody bag: Love it but it is no longer big enough for my needs eg. Big cash wallet and kids junk 😉 - cot/toddler fitted and single sheet: My kids cosleep and I don’t care for the colour. Bye stuff 👋🏻👋🏻👋🏻 #declutter #wannabeminimalist #byestuff

Day 25 of the #minsgame and I'm starting in on the 12 boxes of clothing stacked in my studio. Only tickling the stash today. But this is major. Some of this stuff I've had prior to the birth of my son. My first son. Over 15 years ago. And I've NEVER worn it. It's still hard to let go though. I had a few bits gathered from round the house but made up the rest from the boxes. 2 beach towels. 2 dolls hats (don't fit either of Wren's babies). 1 babygrow. 1 wee jacket. 1 amazing book (not the edition I'd ultimately like to own for my collection). 5 camisoles/tops. 3 pairs of knickers (or more accurately, 3 excuses for pairs of knickers, there is not a lot to them 😂) 3 skirts. 3 pairs of cycling shorts (aka modesty shorts) 2 pairs of pyjama bottoms. 2 pairs of stockings #everylittlestep #smallsteps #lessstuff #lessstuffmorelife #lessstuffmoremeaning #freedominless #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #journeytominimalism #wannabeminimalist #minimalistjourney #becomingminimalist #hoarder #clotheshoarder

How does the way you decorate you home affect your mood? It’s hard to get a good photo (or rather I find it hard! I blame the fact it’s north-facing 😆) but I’m always struck by how calm and happy our spare room makes me feel. Mainly because it feels light and minimalist and generally isn’t full of sh*t... This should be inspiration for how I decorate the room I actually sleep in, right? So the goal this year is to create a serene, hotel-style bedroom, ideally with a huge kingsize bed that can fit two adults (without touching 😆) and an additional two kids on a sunday morning. Then the challenge will be how do you stop ending up with clothes all over the bed/chair/floor?? #firstworldproblems #wannabeminimalist #nesttoimpress

Let's talk about clutter and debt. I purged through my clothes. Look how many empty hangers I have guys...this is horrible. I had clothes with tags still on them...I see this as a waste of money. I was able to give some new shirts to my oldest, so there's the silver lining. Now imagine if I put all that money towards debt instead of clothes that just collected dust in my closet. And no, I'm not going to sell my clothes, I rather give all the clothes to a shelter for abused women and children. I know these clothes will bring joy to them. Now do you guys think #minimalism and being on the #debtfreejourney go hand and hand? Also this was inspired by my upcoming move plus @debtfreeplusbabies #debtfreecommunity #debtfree #budgeting #budget #financialfreedom #debtfreejourney #planner #budgetplanning #savings #saveallthemoney #save #daveramsey #daveramseybabysteps #purgeallthethings #minimalist #wannabeminimalist

Day 23 of the #minsgame I could quite easily have 'got away with' using the wax crayons for the rest of the game but I decided to count them as 'one box of' rather than individually. I would say I'm not sure how we ended up with hundreds of them but I know for sure it's Christmas and birthday after Christmas and birthday of Kota being bought craft/drawing sets. Not sure what's happened to all the other crayons? I wonder if they're lurking for me somewhere. 1 set of stickers. 1 colouring sheet. 1 patch. 1 random plastic 🦁1 random plastic 🐬(why do I even have this stuff?!) 1 random square bead. 1 library card for an area I've not lived in for over 6 years. 1 dead hair bobble. 1 madonna and child card. 1 dead head band that was going to get mended (?! not sure how?!?) 1 fabric clasp I was going to upcycle onto something else. 1 totem pouch. 1 Boba Fett playing card (don't panic @tich_mcg knows it's going) 1 length of cord. 7 photo mattes. 1 necklace. My studio is just full of piles and boxes of this kind of 'stuff'. All the stuff that never found a home anywhere else. All the unfinished, imaginary projects. It's going to be a different space without it all cluttering my workspace and my mind. Swipe to see the keep and the clear for the wax crayons #everylittlestep #journeytominimalism #wannabeminimalist #becomingminimalist #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #smallsteps #lessstuff #lessstuffmorelife #lessstuffmoremeaning #freedominless

I'm a day late again as I'm struggling to find the time to go through things. It's certainly not for a lack of things that need clearing out. Day 22 of the #minsgame 1 pile of random paper with lists and lists of lists and quotes and other random useless scribbles. 1 Hello Kitty pencil case, I used to be obsessed but my tastes have changed. 12 pencils, I have three sets of drawing pencils, clearing out this set as I always use my Lumographs if I draw (rare these days but I'd like to change that) and I've given a full set to my son so even though they're not all leaving the house I'm still left with one set. 1 sippy cup, I'm sure they breed in the cupboard. 1 sippy cup lid, as we never use it. 2 pairs of wee socks, I think they must breed in the cupboard too. 1 story book. And 3 headless angels that I was going to mend but have realised they're broken because they're cheap tat and no amount of mending will fix that (if I find their heads they will get cleared too). I'm thinking the Christmas box is going to get a culling this year when it comes down as I'm pretty sure these headless angels have many siblings in there #everylittlestep #journeytominimalism #wannabeminimalist #smallsteps #lessstuff #lessstuffmorelife #lessstuffmoremeaning #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #becomingminimalist

I’m such a sucker! I’m trying to declutter our house and not buy MORE stuff! But the girls both have goals and these are their incentives - they stay in the box, up away from curious hands and if they don’t reach their goal then they get returned.. 🤷🏼‍♀️ •Eva has 7 days of no biting her nails & •Tilly has to stay in her own bed for 7 nights. #gottadowhatittakes #goals #parenting #holidays #imsuchasucker #wannabeminimalist #emmawiggle #emmawiggledoll #thewiggles #harrypotter #harrypotterdoll

I thought today was going to be really hard finding my 21 things for day 21 of the #minsgame and then it wasn't so bad and I found a few bits for tomorrow as well. Just reinforces how much too much I've got. 6 gift bags (I've got a big gift bag stuffed full of gifts bags to regift and wrapping paper and we don't actually buy/give that many gifts each year so I don't really need that many gift bags. I'll need to cut it down a bit more yet I think). 2 packs of gift wrap. 1 set of paper bunting. 1 toddler sunhat as it won't fit Wren next year when we see the sun again. 1 box of 🐚🐚🐚 I collected on the beach but never cleaned up or did anything with. 4 ruined paintbrushes. 1 glass jar that I used for white spirit cleaner (I had two in use, kept one). 1 paper flower that broke off a flower crown that I was going to mend but never did. 1 souvenir wooden coin. Rainbow party banner. 1 amazing vintage wicker bag that's straps are all broken 😭 and I have no clue how to mend and has been sat in my studio in limbo for two years and 1 cardboard box that was storing prints, I've now consolidated all prints into one tube and plan to put up several next month when I lift my minsgame spending ban and buy things like frames and hangers for items that I'd definitely like to keep but are currently clutter as they don't have a home #everylittlestep #smallsteps #wannabeminimalist #minimalistjourney #journeytominimalism #minimalism #simplifying #simplerlife #lessstuffmorelife #lessstuff #lessstuffmoremeaning #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #becomingminimalist

Phew. Caught up. Day 20 of the #minsgame I rounded up some random bits. I went through my photo CDs and checked I had all the photos on my laptop so now I can recycle the discs. 15 CDs. 1 bent hanger. 1 bath toy that Wren never plays with. 1 washer sock bag with a hole in (only discovered the hole yesterday so rather than it sit in limbo for weeks and weeks waiting to never be mended I'm recycling it straight away, I have lots and lots of washer bags). 1 cardboard box that I kept to reuse 'someday' but has been stuffed in my wardrobe for months and 1 dish from an awesome set of beautiful sea foam green vintage scales I had that broke earlier this year 😭 I kept the dish as a way of keeping a part of the scales as I loved them but to be honest it just clutters the worktop up now I've got a boring modern digital set of scales 🙁I don't need it and I probably won't miss it...after a while #journeytominimalism #wannabeminimalist #minimalistjourney #freedominless #lessstuff #lessstuffmorelife #lessstuffmoremeaning #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #smallsteps #everylittlestep #simplifying #simplerlife #becomingminimalist

I know y’all have heard about #springcleaning but how about #fallcleaning ?? Wow! Considering we live the #rvlife how on earth do you accumulate so much?? 🤦🏻‍♀️ from expired food to old/broken stuff to shredded up now paperwork ... it’s just too much sometimes! I can’t wait to have a smaller trailer with less knocks and crannies to stuff things in!

Trying to catch up as I'm a day behind with the #minsgame I'm finding it hard to find the time to find and emotionally process things to let go of. Day 19, 1 wool winter coat. 1 wool cape. 2 pairs of socks. 2 wee vests. 3 wee tshirts. 1 pair of wee shorts. 4 pairs of wee trousers. 1 pair of wee dungarees. 1 wee dress. 2 wee dribble bibs (he's too dribbly for them) and 1 wee hat. Now to go find 20 things for today 😬😫 #probablywontmissit #journeytominimalism #wannabeminimalist #minimalistjourney #lessstuff #lessstuffmorelife #lessstuffmoremeaning #lettinggo #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #freedominless

A little bit late but sometimes life happens and the whole idea of clearing is to make more room and time for the important things so the important things (watching anime with the eldest boy when the wee ones were finally asleep) take priority. Day 18 of the #minsgame I really pushed myself to clear some of my own clothes. I had intended to cull my scarves (see the 10 beige scarves in my last post) and find all 18 items there but I really struggled and only managed 4 scarves (none of them beige 😬) 2 pairs of fingerless mitts. 2 tops. 1 winter hat. 1 pair of amazing purple trainers I wore as maid of honour back in March when I had pregnant feet and they're now a size too big 😭 thick socks won't even help. 1 amazing purple bridesmaid dress from the same occasion that's also too big now and the style it is I can't see how to take it in to make it wearable 😭 good job I had an ace time wearing it that once. 2 wee hats. 1 pair of wee mitts. 1 wee fleece snowsuit. 1 wee vest. 2 wee pairs of nappy cover pants. This is the biggest stack of stuff yet. Surely I should see a difference soon? #journeytominimalism #wannabeminimalist #minimalistjourney #minimalism #minimalist #lettinggo #everylittlehelps #becomingminimalist #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #smallsteps #hoarder #lessstuff #lessstuffmorelife #lessstuffmoremeaning

We had the high bar in our kitchen lowered so our counters are all one level and got new countertops installed! Very exciting and it definitely changed the view from my kitchen sink! (Swipe to see my view before 😬) • • Yes, this is for sure more aesthetically pleasing but it was also done with a lot of intention and was very value driven. • • It created OPEN SPACE which is valuable and inviting and something I crave for my home. • • This also allows us to host more comfortably in our home which is one of our values. The high bar was way too high for barstools. Now when we have people over we will have additional seating there at the new bar that is inviting and encourages interaction with everyone else. • • I am so in love with the idea of an intentional home. Everything we own, we own on purpose. Everything we do, we do with intention. No more autopilot. No more status quo. This was a huge step but there are lots of little things you can do too...decluttering unused and unloved items is so powerful! Don’t discount it because it’s so simple and costs nothing. • • #declutter #livesimply #getorganized #organization #minimalist #minimalism #minimalistlifestyle #minimaliststyle #lessismore #wannabeminimalist #bemorewithless #cleartheclutter #cleartheclutterandbreathe #theintentionalhome

This is 2weeks worth of food for my son and I. And guess what I spent??? $57!!! I have challenged myself to a frugal, lower waste grocery budget. I am buying less packaged/convenience foods, cooking more, eating from home and making the food stretch between grocery hauls. I have also challenged myself to only shop one time, every two weeks. So... what we have, is what have. We also try to use most everything between shopping trips so that we do not waste food. Sometimes there are oats and other staples that hang around until the next grocery trip and that's just an added bonus! Oh! The gorgeousness in the basket is from my garden. #eatinghealthy #notaspriceyasyouthink #lesswaste #veggiegoodness #frugalbutfun #choosebetter #dobetterbebetter

Day 17 of the #minsgame and it's starting to get a lot harder. I'm moving on to the stuff I really struggle with. Which to most people would probably just look like a pile of junk but for some reason I find it really difficult letting go of the junk stuff. The stuff that 'could be turned into something' the stuff that just needs a little glue, the stuff that I'll use 'someday'. 1 pack of party napkins. 1 drawstring bag that some earrings arrived in. 1 washer sock bag that needs mending. 1 wedding book tree. 1 bag of latches/clasps that I could use on some as of yet unplanned unspecified project. 1 dawn off key that was for a china cabinet upcycle project (that didn't work as intended). 2 random cogs for doing steampunky stuff with. 1 knitted flower hair clip. 1 broken Welsh dragon 😭 that I thought was made of plastic so I let Wren play with but it was actually resin and she immediately broke it and now even if I glue the leg there are shards missing so it will look tatty. 1 braid (from a couple of years ago when I chopped my boy's hair and was supposed to send it off to a wig charity but couldn't part with it...now sending it off). 1 Pocahontas (random). 3 broken 🦉owl ornaments. 1 broken leather strap. 1 satin fabric sample. My studio is full of stuff like this. Just stuff. Stuff that doesn't actually do anything other than distract me and clutter my desk #smallsteps #everylittlehelps #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #journeytominimalism #wannabeminimalist #minimalistjourney #minimalism #lessstuffmorelife #lessstuffmoremeaning #hoarder

I’m a big podcast fan, and Motley Fool Answers is one that continues to make my must listen list. This past week’s episode spoke to something I’ve been trying to put into action in my own life... • For me, budgeting and being mindful of my consumption have gone hand in hand. Identifying and focusing on the things I value, and how I want to integrate them into my life, keeps leading me to the same question — how can I live on less stuff? • I’m definitely a work in progress, but this episode was a great reminder of why living intentionally has stayed high in my list of goals. • #budget #budgeting #livewhatyouvalue #livewithless #motleyfoolanswers #intentionalliving #wannabeminimalist

Day 16 of the #minsgame is the start of the really difficult half of the month. I struggled a bit today. Not because I've not got much to clear out but because I find it very hard letting go of my clothes. But I pushed myself. 2 tops. 1 bag. 5 scarves. 2 winter hats. 6 belts. When I look at them all I logically know I have far too many and can think, right, half can/need to go but when I actually try to pick out items to clear I suddenly hit the wall. I've spent years with the mindset 'ooh I don't have that colour/cut/style' I had 28 belts, I managed to clear out 6. I had 94 scarves, I managed to clear out 5. I've got a long way to go and it feels impossible. How do I choose when I like them all? At the same time I know it's absurd. Who needs 94 scarves?!? It's a start #smallsteps #everylittlestep #everylittlehelps #wannabeminimalist #becomingminimalist #minimalism #lessstuffmorelife #lessstuffmoremeaning #lessstuff #journeytominimalism #minimalistjourney #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife

My laundry area/side door entry way! . This has been such an eye sore as soon as you walk into our home. We moved in a month and a half ago, so many things have just been dropped here in the process. I know this will be a challenge to keep orderly, but now that this space has been decluttered the organization/functional decor ideas are flowing. . Where’d everything go? Ironing board with drying diapers was moved to our spare room to finish drying. They will then be folded and put away. The outside play set was moved to our outbuilding. A few hardware pieces were lost in the move, so hopefully I’ll be able to get a replacement set from the company, if not it’ll be sold/donated. There was a box of stuff to add to the “for sale” pile. I also found a set of rental books that need to be sent back to amazon AND a gift I got for my brother in-law. . This was inspired @allie_thatsme 10:10 challenge. Today was Day 1, can’t wait to see what Day 2 has in store.

Day 15 of the #minsgame feels like it's getting tougher but then I don't actually struggle to find things to make up the numbers. I've been clearing lots of Wren and Rohan's outgrown clothes and still they have an abundance. Rohan has a big bag of hand-me-downs from Wren and a friend to grow into. Wren has also always had a big bag of clothes to grow into but since I've stopped buying and she's kept growing and I've kept clearing out the bag has been slowly depleting. I've always felt anxious about the bags of clothes, worried that I'll 'miss' clothes and they won't get to wear them. And really what's going to happen if they do miss some of them? As I've been clearing I've been learning that some things that I would get so anxious to the point of panicky about don't matter at all. And that really the wee ones don't need nearly so much as I have always provided. And I certainly don't need as much as I have. 1 wee long-sleeved top. 2 rompers. 3 pairs of dungarees. 1 wee jumper. 1 pair of wee tights. And pushing myself with 7 pairs of my earrings #smallsteps #everylittlehelps #journeytominimalism #wannabeminimalist #minimalistjourney #minimalism #freedominless #lessstuffmorelife #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife

Day 14 of the #minsgame 8 balls of wool oddments, 1 ball of red wool, 1 crochet sunglasses snug and 4 knit flower hair grips. I'm pushing myself to let go of the perfectly usable wool that I've just not used. It's so hard, there are so many projects I 'might' make. It feels like I'm restricting myself, preventing myself from making them. I have to let go, make room and rationalise that if I do at some point actually want to knit again I can go out and purchase exactly what I actually need to create whatever project I actually want to make. I don't need 'someday' wool. Having said that I've still got quite a few balls in the bag 😬 #smallsteps #everylittlehelps #journeytominimalism #wannabeminimalist #minimalistjourney #becomingminimalist #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #lessstuffmorelife #freedominless #minimalism #minimalist

Tag 14 der #iic #minimalism.. wie schön- oder schön wärs... seit etwa zwei Jahren beschäftige ich mich vermehrt mit dem Thema und habe bereits einiges verändert.. Mein Freund lacht jetzt über mich und findet, ich sei davon meilenweit entfernt 🙈! Allerdings bin ich der Meinung das man eben bestimmte Gewohnheiten nicht von einen auf den anderen Tag ändern kann, genausowenig möchte ich sämtliche Dinge aussortieren oder einfach wegwerfen, wie es der ein oder andere Ratgeber (nicht nur mein Freund) radikal impliziert... daher denke ich, sollte es viel mehr ein Prozess sein, in dem man sich überlegt- was brauche ich wirklich und in dem man sich klar werden sollte, dass viel zu besitzen nicht an sich glücklich macht. Nichtsdestotrotz macht es Spaß schöne Dinge zu kaufen, zu sammeln und sich mit Kladderadatsch zu umgeben, die einem Freude bereiten. So macht es mir Freude neue Kleidung, Accessoires oder Möbel sorgsam auszusuchen und nicht nach dem nächstbesten zu greifen... da wären wir wieder beim Motto #buylesschoosewellmakeitlast . . @kitchcanmakeyourich #instagraminteriorchallenge #iicminimalism #minimalism #minimalismus #minimalist #wannabeminimalist #inprocess #kleiderleiter @jankurtz_gmbh #strandtasche #naturalcolours #thesimplelife #daseinfacheleben #lessismore #keepitreal #skandinavianhome #interiordesign #interiorlovers #myhyggehome #hygge #naturallight #bedroom #welcometomyhome {unbeauftragte Werbung | Markennennung | Personenverlinkung}

Day 13 of the #minsgame I'm letting go of some of the many many crochet/knit flowers I've made to 'use up' odds and ends of wool. Always intending to 'someday' use them to decorate something but never actually have. I don't really knit or crochet anymore which has been hard to actually admit but I'm realising I need to let go of all the paraphernalia as I have to heft the bags of wool and woollen creations out the way every time I want to get to my paint drawer, which I do use very often #journeytominimalism #minimalistjourney #becomingminimalist #minimalism #lettinggo #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #wannabeminimalist #freedominless #lessstuffmorelife

Day 12 of the #minsgame and I'm finally letting go of some of my knit/crochet creations that I've held onto despite specialising in pyrography for my business for several years now. 5 crochet sunglasses snugs. 1 crochet mini tote bag. 1 knit Easter 🐣 boiled egg cosy. 3 crochet cord ties that a lovely lady gave me when she found out I was pregnant with Rohan but unfortunately I had no idea what they were for at the time otherwise I'd have used them 😂 I'm an idiot, I blame baby brain. 1 knit vest I bought while pregnant with Rohan which I still love, just not actually on him 😂 and 1 little person dressing gown. I'm actually starting to notice a difference in my studio (aka what should be my studio but is actually my hoard) #freedominless #lessstuffmorelife #wannabeminimalist #minimalistjourney #journeytominimalism #minimslism #theminimalists #becomingminimalist #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife

THE PURGE!! With the exception of the tank & leggings I have on, underwear/bras/socks, 2 nightgowns, outerwear, and 3 items in the washer, this is my entire wardrobe! I filled 4 garbage bags with clothing that's too big (thanks, gastric bypass!) and things I don't like or wear. I've wanted to strive for a minimalist closet, and while this isn't teeny tiny, it is less than 50 pieces and I'm happy with that. I'm going to see how many different combos I can come up with, and may need to add a garment her3 and there, but I'll be starting to follow the "one in, one out" rule. There's a few things in here I was on the fence about, so they might be gone soon, too. #smallwardrobe #capsulewardrobe #mycloset #ootd #mixnmatch #wardrobe #wannabeminimalist

Day 11 of the #minsgame I thought I'd take advantage of having to empty the linen cupboard so the plumber could service the boiler by going through the linen and thinning it out a bit. 1 vintage Thomas the Tank Engine duvet cover. 1 vintage Paddington Bear duvet cover. 1 vintage Paddington Bear pillowcase (both bought while pregnant with wee Wren as I loved Paddington as a child but she's not arsed and neither am I...learning to only buy for the age they are...Wren's not going to be in a single bed for a few years yet and Rohan will be even longer...why do I have so many single duvet sets? There are still 5 sets in the cupboard) 1 newborn blanket (😭 I miss the teeny tiny) 2 flannelette flat sheets. 3 pairs of tiny shorts. 1 pair of tiny crochet mittens. 1 pair of socks.

Day 10 of the #minsgame Wren was decidedly unhelpful while I was trying to sort through my rings again (I've already cleared out 6) and kept moving them from pile to pile and trying them all on and hiding them in boxes. Pretty cute when she put some on her toes though. With these and the previous 6 cleared out I've nearly cleared 50% of my rings. I had 37. I now have 21 #gettingthere #smallsteps #wannabeminimalist #becomingminimalist #freedominless #minimalistjourney #lettinggo #minimalism #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife

Hello spring cleaning! Joining @lifewithbess for the #lwbspringclean challenge this week. Day 1 is the kitchen so in amongst meal prep I’m taking everything out of the cupboards wiping them down and only putting back what actually gets used.

Day 9 of the #minsgame may look like an easy clear out but I actually find it really really hard to get rid of this kind of stuff. Even though I know it's basically junk. It's all 'someday' stuff. Someday I'll re-own the puzzle that I already cleared out and then found the missing pieces for. Someday I'll turn these Hama bead 🍎🍏apple creations into earring and necklace sets. Someday I'll mend my pit droid keyring that keeps losing his legs (those are currently MIA on my studio desk and will get cleared out as soon as they turn up/get unburied). I've kept some Hama bead creations that I still intend to 'someday' turn into earrings but if I haven't done so by the end of this year then I think I'll have to let them go too...not sure whether I really should make them into earrings when I'm trying to cut my clothing/accessories down by 50% I may have to do one in two out if I make any new jewellery to compensate #wannabeminimalist #becomingminimalist #freedominless #lessstuffmorelife #minimalistjourney #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #minimalism #lettinggo #clearout

Oh hello. I'm B and I'm hoping this account is going to help me make positive changes for me and my family. Its nearly midnight on a Friday night and I'm stressing over the broken fridge/freezer. Our credit is maxed out and we have no savings to go out and buy even the cheapest or a decet 2nd hand on. But it's ok. It's easy to look at others on social media and compare yourself to their lifestyle and feel the pressure to match up. Well real life isnt as easy as the little pictures you see in your phone. Ive already been struggling with my declittering journey for a good 4 years and as my family has grown and we've been through the ups and downs of family life... I seem to have more stuff!!? Wait how did that happen. I mean yes we have an extra person but there is just so much extra clutter! I cant take it anymore. I want a minamilist home and I want things to be simple so we cab just get on with living our best life and not striving for perfecting the idea social media photo. So first job is clearing stuff out and finding the money to buy a new fridge/freezer. You'd think the 2 would work well togethet however shpock and Facebook market place arent working in my favour atm. 2nd job is to stop comparing my life to the photos in my phone. Xx
