MINIMALISM- Deciding what's important to you, and removing the rest.
- resigning from one of our five jobs
- cleaning out our closets
- getting rid of electronic devices we don't use
- donating things in our house that's collecting dust
- and paying off debt...
Did you know you can be successful and not purposeful?
Is there something you are holding onto that no longer has meaning?
Is there someone else who could benefit from what you're no longer using?
Is there something you've been procrastinating because you've been too overwhelmed with busy and meaningless work?
We want to help you!
Tips to Help You Begin to Live With Less!
The goal is to only keep the things you truly love and cherish...
1. Declutter Closet
If you're in need of money sell your clothes!
If you desire to bless someone, give the clothes away to someone in need or a local organization.
2. Declutter Books
Are there books you enjoy having in your collection? KEEP THOSE!
Don't feel bad about having them if they're meaningful to you!
If there are books you no longer read or know it would be beneficial for someone else to read, give it away!
3. Declutter Paperwork
Go paperless/Get your mail sent electronically
Take photos of old cards or letters that are taking up space
Organize your photos in an album or in frames
Upload/Scan paperwork you'd like to keep and keep it digitally
4. Begin Paying Off Debt Vigorously
Follow Dave Ramsey's Method
The Snowball Method
5. Examine extracurricular activities, organization involvement + jobs
If you're doing something every single night and have no time for yourself, reexamine your schedule and think about letting go of something
6. Meal Prep
If you're always eating out and/or spending your lunch breaks searching for food and standing in long lines...
Try preparing your meals at the beginning of the week.
Use the time you were spending every day getting food to just relax and breathe.
You'll also be saving money and eating LESS.
Eating out usually always guarantees bigger portions that aren't needed!
7. Don't buy anything else if you already have it.
you have a pair of white shoes but want another pair of white shoes.
you have 5 black dresses but want another black dress.
you have a car that's paid off and works perfectly fine but want another car.
8. Always ask, do I need this?
