DO YOU WANT LESS STUFF?

Have you been reading my blogs and fb status updates and wishing you could start minimizing too? Does clutter overwhelm your life? Do you walk into your house and wish it felt more homey? or peaceful? or inviting? Does it feel like there is too much and you are too attached and it could never be done? I HAVE BEEN IN YOUR SHOES! We have been fed the lie since we were born that buying more stuff will buy us happiness and contentment...Pretty much daily, we hear..."You NEED this or that! Buy this product and you will thrive and be successful! Buy that product for beautiful skin or hair. Buy that one over there for fastest weight loss." LIE LIE LIE!!!! We live in a culture of EXCESSIVE CONSUMERISM. Too much stuff truly does rob us of our joy. I've piddled with simplifying for the last 8 years and just the last few months, my brain has switched over and realized the REAL VALUE in getting rid of our "valuables." I'm done with clutter. My goal is to be completely clutter free by the 2nd week of April. 

Even if you're not ready to go extreme. Start somewhere! You will feel so much better!
There are countless helpful minimalist videos on YouTube...One of the videos I started with is here. And if you listen to it and declutter at the same time - it really helps your progress ;). And listening to them will give you great ideas for getting started! Not to mention inspiration from someone who has been where you may be and overcome it!

Enjoy!
