This site is about living more simply in order to have a richer life. There is no wrong or right way to live simply, it’s whatever works best for you.
I believe it’s a journey, not a destination. I’m on this journey with you.
Blissfully yours, m.
I love pictures that represent minimalism to me. Beautiful pictures inspire me and remind me why I am on this journey. Click “photo” at the very top.
If you have any photos or pinterests boards you like me to post, just contact me and send me the link.
I’ve compiled a partial list of things that some minimalist do. Do what feels right for you. It’s a mindset and a process and not so much the number of possessions you have.
De-clutter, change jobs, quit jobs, find more fulfilling work, live below their means, live within their means, pay off debt, downsize their home, pay off their mortgage, rent-they have no mortgage, travel, purchase less, have only items they love, need or use, reuse-refuse-recycle, get rid of cable, get rid of TV, watch less TV, spend time they way they want, take more naps, take more walks, stay home with the kids, volunteer, form quality relationships, become more community-involved, pair down to 100 possessions, pair down to 500 possessions, don’t count their possessions, donate, sell possessions, garden, grow veggies, enjoy the simple things in life, follow their passions, buy from thrift stores, buy quality items, save money, buy local, buy from farmer’s markets, join CSAs, know the origin of purchases and the impact on the environment, compost, spend more time with family, reduce stress, increase quality time, borrow instead of buy, mend/fix instead of replace, become closer to nature, don’t live to society’s standards, drive less, get rid of car, take public transportation, ride bicycles for transportation, start blogs…
