Even if you don’t subscribe to the minimalist lifestyle, you can simplify your home. Here are three reasons to simplify your home now!
3 Reasons to Simplify
1. Less visual clutter. I like our house to be cozy. But I don’t like it to be overrun with stuff. I hate tripping over things on the stairs just waiting to be put away. I dislike looking at 50 pairs of shoes in the entryway. I don’t want to see now-too-small sweaters in a pile on the kids’ bedroom floors. It’s so soothing to look around and not have every corner stuffed with stuff. Let your house breathe.
2. Less to clean. Seriously who likes cleaning? (If you do, come to my house every other Friday and I’ll ply you with coffee in exchange for cleaning services.) With less stuff in the house, there’s less to clean, vacuum around and dust. And that alone makes it worth it to simplify your home!
3. Less time spent organizing. It’s awesome to be organized. Organizing our space is one of my favorite things to do actually. But only with things that we actually need. Like spices in the pantry (our kitchen pantry shelving makeover is coming soon!), or towels in the closet. It’s pretty pointless to organize stuff that’s unnecessary.
So while you may not need that thingamabob or doohickey taking up space in the corner, someone else may. When you simplify, donate your unneeded items to local and national non-profits at Value Village. You never know who you might help!
