We've been on this journey about 4 years and we're finding much more peace and joy in our lives.
This is a some of our journey so far and the things we find helpful:
We live in a small house (family of 4), have minimal possessions, have capsule wardrobes, our 2x DS have minimal quality toys (mostly wooden, open-ended), we have chooks who supply our eggs and a good veggie patch, we eat the same basic, simple meals on a rotating plan each month and cook in bulk our lunches (and freeze) - same meal each day per week. We cycle through the same 3 breakfast options each week. We use cloth nappies, cloth pads, cloth 'paper towels'. We have minimal linen - 2 bed sheet sets per bed, 2 towels per person (my kids are colour coded). Mobile phones are kept in a drawer at home during the day, TV is off during the day (1- 2 times a week the kids watch a short movie with us or an episode of playschool), internet is used only during rest time or evenings (for me). I have deleted all the apps from my phone - including facebook and unsubscribed to any emails.
We're still 'culling' our stuff. My DH is a 'recovering hoarder' (he's from a long line of hoarders, lol). We've just finished another round and we starting to get close to a bit more harmony, peace and joy. I loosely follow the Konmari method - but a bit more ruthless in culling stuff.
Where are you on your journey?
What helps you find 'peace' and joy in your household?
How do you minimalise in your house?
Love to learn from others!!
