Instagram Challenge: Week 1
Hello everyone! Week one! We’re talking all things on editing our homes,
simplifying, and entertaining the idea of practical minimalism for the next few weeks if you want to join in with us. Let’s get right to it!
Where to start. Feeling overwhelmed.
Are you there? High five. We are with you. Even I feel like this periodically and I have a pretty solid grasp on how all of this works. The reason why is because life continues to change and evolve, along with ourselves and our families, so we are trying to keep up.
Sometimes our systems need complete overhauls, and sometimes they just need tweaks. Please don’t be frightened by any of that. It is manageable, I promise.
So the *challenge today* is to think of life into *simplifying categories*. For example, here’s what is currently working for me: home goods, food, clothing, personal care, fun. Home goods meaning how we make the house function - from cleaning to functional decor. Our Food category is basically all things kitchen, preparation, utensils, storage, etc. Fun is all the extras that bring us joy, kids toys, books, magazines, to collections. Decide what categories work for you. You might need more or less. You are welcome to use our list that is working well for our family.
Now I’m going to encourage you to select *only one* of these categories and take a deep look and dive into it.
Jot down or think about in general what all falls into this category for you in your home. Get a good grasp on all the things in your category and then come back to us on Wednesday for some practical tips on how to start simplifying what you have, wherever you are at with it. Yep, there’s no judgement here.
*Also* feel free to post your categories below to share with others and help each
other weed through the mayhem! There are no wrong or right categories! You’ve got this!
If you need help, have ideas + comments, please share below!
