5. Dress with Less

5. Dress with Less

If you haven’t considered Project 333, dressing with only 33 items for 3 months (clothes, shoes, jewelry, accessories) sounds extreme, but thousands of people know that it actually makes life easier instead of more challenging.

1. Write it down

1. Write it down

Make a list of all the reasons you want to live more simply.

  • If you are sick of debt collectors, write it down.
  • Mad that you never get any time with your kids? Write it down.
  • To stressed out to sleep at night? Put it on paper.
  • Want to fire your boss? Yep, write that down too.

These are your whys and your whys will provide great leverage when you think it’s too hard to keep going. Your whys will help you remember what matters.

6. Eat similar meals

6. Eat similar meals

When you think about how much time you spend thinking about what you are going to eat for lunch, make your family for dinner, or what you need to pick up at the grocery store, it’s clear that food is not always simple.

Try eating the same breakfast and lunch all week and have 2 or 3 dinner choices that rotate throughout the week.

If your family complains, let them know it’s an experiment and then talk about it at the end of the week.

2. Discard the duplicates

2. Discard the duplicates

Walk through your home with a box and fill it with duplicates.

  • If you have two sets of measuring cups, put them in the box.
  • Copies of the same book or DVD? Put one in the box.
  • Doubles on place mat sets? You only need one.

Once you fill the box, label it “Duplicates” and put it out of sight for 30 days.

If you don’t need anything or don’t remember what was in the box, donate it.

3. Declare a clutter-free zone

3. Declare a clutter-free zone

This area could be a kitchen table, your nightstand, a countertop or a drawer in your kitchen.

Use that clutter-free zone as inspiration to live with less.

If you enjoy that clean, clear environment, expand the zone a little bit each day.

A clutter-free countertop can become a clutter-free room and a clutter free room can become the clutter-free, minimalist home you’ve been thinking about. ❤️

4. Travel lightly

4. Travel lightly

Travel always renew my love of minimalism and living simply.

The next time you take a trip, pack for 1/2 the time. If you are traveling for 4 days, pack for 2.

You can wash and hang clothes if you need to or wear the same things twice.

See how it feels to carry less baggage.

The beauty of beginner minimalist

The beauty of beginner minimalist

Even if it takes 10 years to get to where you think you want to be, the benefits begin immediately.

The beauty of being a beginner minimalist is that you can be curious, and daring.

You can ask for help, get back up if you fall, and look forward to new adventures in a life with less stuff, drama, debt, and obligation.

7. Save $1000

7. Save $1000

An emergency fund simplifies everything.

  • If you are paying off debt, only pay your minimum payments until you can save $1000.
  • If you aren’t in debt, but still spend what you have, set aside money every day or every week until you reach $1000.

Try the 52 week money challenge and in 45 weeks, you’ll save more than $1000 without ever contributing more than $45 in a week. Money for emergencies reduces stress and emergencies.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
