It’s that time of year again! A time when all of our family and friends gather to celebrate the Holidays and give thanks. Even though Thanksgiving is all about being grateful, it can get stressful trying to prepare your home perfectly for the festivities and family gatherings to come. With the stress of everything else going on it’s hard to keep up with the deep cleaning during the holidays so we cut the list down to three basics.
Creating a minimalist home goes hand in hand with becoming organized and clutter free. To have a minimalistic home means to live very simply and to be free of any excess junk that could be lying around. Minimalism has become a trending topic because, like organizing, it comes with tons of benefits to improve your lifestyle and your home. Though for some people, getting rid of excess junk could seem almost impossible, that’s why we created this 5-step guide on how to begin making your home a minimalistic one.
1. Room by room. Don’t overwhelm yourself by looking at the home as a whole, instead start off simply by picking one room and going on to the next. This is all about becoming stress free!
2. Bare Essentials. Becoming a minimalist means ridding yourself of things you no longer need or that serve no purpose to you anymore. Go through each room and observe the furniture, the knick-knacks and everything else in the room and ask yourself “Do I really need this?” if the answer is anything but, “yes!” toss it out!
3. Out of Sight Storage. Still have quite a bit of stuff even after step two? All you have to do now is find some extra storage space that is out of sight for the things you couldn’t quite get rid of, but should still be out of the way. Organization bins are an easy go-to for some extra hidden storage under your bed.
