When you choose to take a minimalist approach to life, you’re embracing an empowering and freeing way to live. Have you thought about adopting a minimalist lifestyle this Fall? Consider applying these minimalist life hacks to maintain your financial health and turn your house into a welcoming, more spacious sanctuary.
Applying minimalism to different areas of life
Your budget, home, relationships, productivity, and overall sanity can benefit from minimalism. However, living like a true minimalist takes time to get used to—sometimes you don’t realize how materialistic your habits are until you re-evaluate them.
At the same time, it’s important to realize that minimalism doesn’t have to be all-or-nothing. Thankfully, it’s totally doable to gradually incorporate minimalist practices into your routine and still enjoy the rewards.
Tips for maintaining this lifestyle
If you haven’t been mindful about your purchases in the past, chances are you’ve stacked up a pile of things you don’t need (or want) anymore. Although it may be headache-inducing at first, purging all your clutter will eventually bring you a huge sense of relief.
Team up with a friend, family member, or partner to tackle the task together so it’s less daunting. Remember, there will be a payoff! One of the perks of having a minimalist mindset is that you don’t sweat the small stuff.
Plus, you don’t have to worry about having tons of items to store, organize, clean, and maintain. It’s no surprise that minimalists are oftentimes a lot less stressed about the little things in life! Less truly is more sometimes.
Ease your way into minimalism and enjoy every step of the process. Keeping unnecessary items to a minimum has incredibly positive effects on your life.
After embracing minimalism, you might notice you’re less tempted to accumulate items because you’re loving the simplicity of this way of life. Ultimately, you’ll be helping yourself and Mother Nature by living a more green lifestyle, too.

Such great advice Christy! Thanks for sharing and for being there!
I nearly want to jump up and celebrate this blog post, Christy! :D Yes, yes, and yes! I 100% agree with the minimalism mindset. I am gradually trying to bring my husband over to this side of the fence! ;) He comes from a family of very unorganized folks, unfortunately. One sister is a full-blown hoarder. It makes me sad because her mental health is extremely poor.
I fully believe that less is more! I’ve noticed my stress levels decrease, and my ability to focus increases, every time I de-clutter, clean, and toss or donate items no longer needed. Not to mention a bump in creativity the more organized my surrounding space is. Have you noticed this as well?
The infographic is fantastic too. It’s true – we save so much money not wasting it on unnecessary junk. A lot of times, if we think we want something, just pause. If we sleep on it and still feel the need to purchase something the next day, it might be worth having. Impulse buys are rarely a good idea! ;)
Love this, Christy. I hope more people discover the joys of downsizing. As soon as one starts getting rid of things they haven’t used in a good while, you soon realize how good it feels!
Sending my love and many hugs to you. Thanks for this fantastic article, as always! 💕
I am slowly but surely downsizing and fluffing off materialism day by day🙌🏼
This really made me stop and think. I have started a stack on my dining room table of “stuff” to donate to a worthy cause garage sale. The lady who asked me to “save” anything will even store it. Win, win, win.
I am a hard core minimalist. Did you know that Christy! It is one hundred percent my favourite way to declutter my mind. Less is more!
You both are sooooo right.
