Well, minimalism doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with money. But in my opinion money -and by that I mean having control over your own money- does have everything to do with minimalism. Minimalism to me means you only have/do what you need or that amplifies your experience of life. That 89th pair of shoes really does nothing more for your level of happiness. That house with 12 bedrooms really doesn’t do anything better than the one that just has enough bedrooms. Sometimes less is more. The right amount of shoes or bedrooms for a great life experience is different for everybody, but you get the concept right?
The less clutter in your house, the less you have to organize, maintain, clean, store and replace the items, causing you to have more free time to do whatever you want! You have more time to raise your kids, exercise, eat/cook healthy meals, create a side hustle, or just spend time on your hobbies.
So I will go through my house and declutter all the things I didn’t use in the past couple of months nor will in the upcoming months, because it gives me space and saves me in cleaning and organizing.
Stuff that is still good I will sell or donate, rest goes to recycle or trash. Are you joining?
Remember, organizing the stuff that you don’t use and need, is just delaying its way to the trash. Your house is not a storage unit!
