Minimalism – start to live now

Start the 30-Day Minimalism challenge

I am constantly searching for ways to live better, to improve my way of living and to be a good role model for my children. The other day I was looking for something to read on my time off (with kids that happens only at nap time) and I came across this book Minimalism by The Minimalists (Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus).

This book talks about how to live a meaningful life with less stuff. Since we all have some clutter in our lives (I know I do) I thought I would recommend this book to you. The authors recommend reading one chapter per day or you can just read through it in a day or two. It’s completely up to you.

You can also watch their documentary on Netflix called “The Minimalists”

So, if you would like to start the 30-Day Minimalism challenge with me to live a more meaningful life with less stuff, you can download the book on Amazon for the Kindle and start to live better. Anyone can do it, whether you are single, a couple, or a family with children. It has definitely motivated me to try it out. Let me know if you would like to join me on this journey. I will be documenting my progress and would love to hear your feedback as well!

    1. Thank you I can’t wait to make all these changes and start to live a more simple and meaningful life. Did you consider it hard to let go of things?

  1. We have so much stuff. I don’t know if I could ever come in Morris, but I want to get rid of a ton of it! Now I just need to find the time!

    1. I know , I am always so busy myself. I guess this is why ,I finally just set a day in my calendar. If I don’t start know I will miss out on the important things, like spending more time with my kids and enjoy more of life.

  2. I still live with my family (because I’m sixteen) so it’s super hard to cut down on everything. When I move out, I definitely want to try the minimalist lifestyle for at least a little bit!

    1. This is great that you would like to try it. The great thing about minimalism is that everyone can do it.

  3. I constantly get rid of things and my family refills the house back up with more things. I just decided to sell my bread machine since I haven’t used it in two years. I am hoping that I don’t buy a brand new one in a few months. I have done that before. LOL

    1. Well its what makes you happy. But its great that you are getting rid of the things you don’t use from time to time. Maybe your family will jump on board with you next time.

  4. I LOVE the idea of minimalism! We’ve been decluttering and working on living with less stuff for years. Instead of focusing on acquiring things, we like to use our time and money to travel. It’s much more rewarding. Plus, less stuff in the house is less to have to clean around. With a giant family to keep up with, it’s a huge help. 🙂

    1. This is exactly what I want. I just feel like we need to enjoy the really important things in life and that is not a house full things.

  5. Ah! I want to try this, but I skew more towards “hoarder” than “minimalist.” Maybe I can dip my toe in and try a few things…

    1. You should try to read the book the also have a great documentary on Netflix if you like to start with that. It just changed my whole mindset. I will start my journey August 1st if you like to join me ?

  6. I’m not even close to being a minimalist but my husband and I do try to get all the clutter out of our house. As much as we can with 3 kids anyways. It became even more evident when my 5 year old had a friend over, and she got bored because my daughter didn’t have as much to play with as they do at home. I fell like my kids have a lot of toys, but we often go through them and get rid of toys to make room for new ones.

    1. I can see why this could be difficult my husband has ADHD as well and for him it’s hard to start projects.
