Spring Cleaning to Simplify your Life
Ahh, spring is here. Does the bright, clean space in this photo put you at ease? Take this spring cleaning season and go a bit further – try minimalizing.
Going tiny requires a shift to a more minimalistic lifestyle. To some, this may be a challenge, but tiny living can help to simplify your life, mindset, and surroundings (not to mention your bank account!).
Sound refreshing? Here are some quick tips to start living a more minimalist lifestyle:
- Try a capsule wardrobe – pick neutral pieces that you can mix and match, but keep a few bright or unique accessories to change up your outfits. Check out our Pinterest board for inspiration on capsule wardrobes!
- Declutter! Having a hard time parting with that jacket that was a great deal, but resembles 3 others in your closet? What if you could get a few bucks back for it? Sell your clothes using a service like ThredUP or Poshmark. Donating more your style? Think about those who could really use a new jacket – this makes it easier to donate.
- Implement multi-tasking details, like this cutting board that doubles as a sink cover! Hello, counter space!
- Go digital! Digitize photos, receipts, and other important documents or nostalgic items using the CamScanner app for Android or Evernote Scannable for iOS. That external hard drive (or the cloud) will take up far less space than a few file cabinets!
