5 Tips for Beginner Minimalists

We all know I’m a sucker for living with less than I need. However, how did I get here? I certainly wasn’t always like this. I’ve had stages of my life where my things consumed me and I only felt the need to own more. What do you do when you’re drowning in ‘stuff’, ‘clutter’ or ‘junk’? Here’s my list of top tips on how to take a more relaxed approach to minimalising your items:

Minimalist March // Week Three

Happy Thursday!

Digital Decluttering. What is it? Why would it even matter? This week only just starts to touch on digital clutter. I am working on a more detailed post about digital clutter and digital detoxes with more categories and some challenges also.

For this reason, I tried to be more mindful over the course of the month. So what does this mindfulness look like over the course of Minimalist March?
