Are you a fan of minimalist living but tired of feeling like you need to follow a strict set of rules to be a “real” minimalist?
They suggest you declutter anything you’re keeping “just in case” if you can replace it for less than $20 and in less than 20 minutes from your current location.
Many people believe that the first step is to dump everything out of your closet, your drawers, or whatever space you’re decluttering.
I know that some hardcore minimalists say you should never keep sentimental items, but I do and here’s why. Sentimental items are only clutter if they come between you and the life you want.
The one in, one out rule is relatively simple: anytime you bring something new into your home, you should also take something out.
Most people agree with the principle of “quality over quantity”, and so do I—most of the time. But there are exceptions, and it stems from a fascinating experiment.
