Creating Clean My Space videos really makes Chad and I think about everything that we do and everything that we let come into our house. We’ve been thinking a lot about clutter over the past couple of years, especially because we seem to be getting more and more “stuff” sent to us because of the business we’re in. In turn, we’ve developed some informal rules about how to manage clutter and live a more minimal lifestyle. Here are our best minimalist living tips.
1. Prune on the Regular
Pruning your items on a regular basis shouldn’t just be something that you do once a year around spring cleaning. It’s something that needs to become part of your daily routine. Over the past couple of years, Chad and I have really tried champion this concept in our home. We actually have a little weigh station in our basement where we take items that we don’t love, or we don’t need anymore, and we just put it in that bin. Every couple of months we’ll take the contents of the bin and drop them off at a donation center.
