I have a lot of things that I like to focus on and write about in my blog – weight loss, healthy living, spending time with family and friends, etc. But one of my core topics is simplifying and living an organized life.
I’m not a minimalist by any means. I own multiple sets of plates and mugs (partially for entertaining, partially as things tend to get broken easily in my house with two children!), I’m obsessed with blankets and throws, and I like to have a fun, large, wardrobe.
But I don’t want to keep everything that I come across in life. The clutter suffocates me – both physically and mentally. There are seasons where things serve a purpose, and seasons where they don’t. And when something is no longer needed, just get rid of it, no questions asked.
I fully believe that life is about experiences, and not about stuff. It’s not having the latest and greatest of everything all the time. Upgrade what you need, and buy what will add to the richness of the experiences in your life, then be ok with not having all the rest. Save your time, money and energy for the things that are really important in the long run – you, your family, and the happiness you can have together!
All the best!
