Could You Benefit From A More Minimalist Existence?



The world is obsessed with stuff. It’s not something that’s necessarily a bad thing, but when you obsess over having things, it can make your life quite chaotic. When you’re trying to keep your home organized, this can be the last thing that you need. So, instead, you might like to think about having a minimized existence. What would your life be without all of this stuff that drives you crazy and gets in the way? A lot more together, that’s for sure. So, if you like the idea of being able to streamline your lifestyle, here are some steps you could consider taking to make that happen.


Have A Clean Out


When you’re tired of having too much stuff, you have to purge. It’s often the best first step to take when you want to go from having too much to having just enough. If you’ve been hoarding things for years, then the idea of this could freak you out a little. Remember, the sooner you get started, the sooner it will be over. So just start. And start off somewhere small. Go through everything you need and try to clear out as much as you can.


Only Keep What You Need


As you’re going through things, you have to be really strict with yourself. If you’re trying to live a minimal existence, you don’t need a lot of stuff to make that happen. Even if you think you need to hold onto a bunch of items, you’re going to need to be brutal. If you’ve not used something in a certain amount of time, it has to go. Of course, you are going to want to hold on to things that have sentimental meaning to you, and anything important too.




Store Stuff Away


When you’ve got that important stuff pinpointed, you may realize that there’s a lot there. Too much in fact, to allow you to lead that minimal lifestyle that you’re looking for. So, you should think about storage. Get in touch with a removals firm that stores stuff too. That way, you can not only look into their storage options, but you can get them to collect the pieces that you need stored too.


Stop Spending


Now that you’ve managed to clear things out, and benefit from having less “stuff” around the home, you’re going to want to make sure that you don’t add more. If you’ve been in the habit of buying things for a long time, it can be hard to break. So, you’re going to want to practice conscious spending going forwards.


Prioritize Memories, Not Materials

To help you do that, you’re definitely going to want to think about focusing on experiences, and not things. Spending doesn’t have to be your downfall; you just need to make sure that you’re spending in the right way. When you want to live in a minimal way, don’t spend on stuff. Instead, put your money into making memories, and you should find that you can enjoy life so much more too.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
