4 Minimalist Ideas You Can Try Today

November 21, 2017

Minimalism is the latest lifestyle craze that people of all walks of life all over the world are trying.

A minimalist lifestyle involves living more simply, by clearing out the clutter and getting rid of things that you don’t need.

It’s been recommended by celebrities, like Robert Pattinson and Steve Jobs, and there are those that believe that clearing out clutter can decrease stress and increase productivity.

Here are four ideas tips you can use to follow a minimalist lifestyle:

1. Make a list of things you don’t need. If you haven’t used something in over a year, then it’s just taking up extra space.

Try to let some of these items go.

2. Declare a clutter-free zone. Choose an area, such as your nightstand, your desk, or a kitchen counter, and keep it free of mess.

If you enjoy that clean, clear environment, try to expand the zone a little bit more each day.

3. Simplify your food usage. Don’t buy food you don’t need and eat your perishables before they go bad.

Make smaller portions so that prepared food doesn’t go to waste, but make the most of leftovers when you do make too much.

4. Get rid of duplicates. How many pairs of black work shoes do you really need?

Take stock of the items in your home and your cupboard, and think about which are necessities, and try get rid of those which aren’t.
