The 30- day-Minimalist challenge – live a more meaningful life

Finally, the first of the month is here and it’s time to start my 30- day minimalist challenge. I am ready and motivated. I have read Minimalism by The Minimalists ( click here) which is a great help and starting point to understand more about this lifestyle.  So, what is the minimalist challenge and how will it help you? Well, let me explain.

The 30-day minimalist challenge will help you get ride of stuff that is not necessary in your life and/or doesn’t make you happy. Everything that you haven’t used in the last 3 months (except seasonal items) should go. You can donate, sell, or toss. Everything can go! Clothes, furniture, electronics, kitchen items… you get the idea. This challenge can help you to get a great start into a new and meaningful life.

This challenge can be helpful to spend less time cleaning up and give you more time for the important things, like spending time with your family, taking a break for yourself, or just doing something you have wanted to do for a while. But we are only scratching the surface on what this lifestyle can do for you. There are many more things you can do to live a simpler and more meaningful life.

If you would like to see all of the rules for the 30 day minimalist challenge, go to The Minimalists website (click here) where they have listed the rules for you to read. That way, you can join me on this 30- day challenge; and you know what the saying is: “Geteiltes Leid is halbes Leid!” Oh wait, that was German… Anyway, it means: “If you share the task, it is only half the work!”

So, lets get started on living a more meaningful life. If you would like a little help on your way, I have created a for you a free 30 Day Minimalist Check- list + BONUS material.  I will post about my first week’s progress next Monday. I will try to post little updates on my Facebook and Instagram as well. Also, you can subscribe to my newsletter for more frequent updates. It will definitely be worth your time.

Talk to you soon,

  1. I’m striving so hard toward minimalism but then I go to the flea market and target. So, is this similar to the 30 bags in 30 days challenge? I did that one year. I’m great at getting rid of stuff. Not so great at not replacing it with more stuff ?

    1. I am not familiar withe 30 bags challenge but I can understand that it is difficult not to replace the items when you see something.

    1. This is great! we should keep each other company and do this together. I start my journey tomorrow.

        1. This is great ? let me know how your first week goes I am super interested. I will give small updates on Facebook and IG. I would love to hear from you.

  2. I definitely need to start embracing the minimalism lifestyle. I gave away so much after we moved and I still have more stuff than places to put it.

  3. Funny – we are blitzing the playroom today… I hadn’t even registered that is is 1st August but having put it off for weeks maybe it was a subliminal decision?!!

    1. This is great! If you like you can subscribe to my newsletter for updates if you like to follow along.

  4. Wow I read up about the challenge on their website, and it seems so hard! I think around the 2 or third week I would have daily panic attacks about giving stuff away! I am about to move and need to get rid of a lot of stuff to make my transition easier on myself. Thanks for sharing your challenge, I was inspired to get rid of some stuff.

    1. Yes I believe it will be a challenge especially towards the end when you have to get rid of 28 or 30 items in one day but I will go and spend those days decluttering my closets ?.

  5. I started the minimalism project not by my own choice when life circumstances required me to move to the other side of the world. I got rid about 99% of my material belonging. I left just with 3 suitcases of clothes, books and some pastry tools. It hurt. But, now onwards to living a more meaningful life.

    1. Wow, this is must have been not easy to make a decision like that. We have moved from Germany to the USA , I can relate how it is to leave family, friends and things behind. I am impressed, how you did such a big move, with only 3 suitcases. I hope you will find your happiness in the work you do and the people you consider family and friends. I wish you all the best on your journey. ?

  6. I love this idea of “less is more.” To that end, I have been trying to simplify the things in my life and even streamline my plans that don’t add discernible value. I can’t wait to see what else I can streamline with your 30 day challenge!

  7. My family is definitely working on getting rid of a lot of stuff we don’t use. We are donating so much to GoodWill and even sending boxes overseas. We have been [and still are] so fortunate and blessed, and we hope by giving up some of our stuff, we will help others gain that feeling as well. I definitely wouldn’t call us minimalistic, but we are slowly heading in the right direction!
