Kat’s Guide on How to be a Minimalist

Pare down until you can’t pare down no more

Be creative! Try to earn money while paring down

STOP BUYING STUFF

Visualize your space. Create dream boards, save pictures, use Pinterest!

Find new homes for your stuff (sell or give away) or use it all up

Read magazines/blogs to get inspiration

Be curious and try different things

Say NO to strorage

Accept that it takes time. Enjoy the process and learn as much as you can

Do what feels right/works for you!

Minimalism is not about deprivation. Rather, minimalism is about getting rid of life’s excess in favor of the essential. – The Minimalists (@TheMinimalists)

These tips have successfully helped me in my goal to try and live a minimalist lifestyle. Of course I am no pro and I still have a long way to go. If you have ideas or questions please do drop a comment! 🙂

    Well said Kat. I don’t do clutter either. If I don’t use it, I give it away and if it’s broken, it’s thrown away. I like clean and neat spaces too. 😀

    Great photo. Love the little table and it looks great against the blue wall.

    I am on a minimalist journey too. I did invest in a shredder for sorting out my paperwork mountain. Bank statements from 2000 🙈

    • Oh my. I can imagine the amount of paper work you have! Sixteen years worth of paper 😳 good thing I decided to go digital with all the bills and bank statements about two years ago!
