Special Date Night Thanks to Minimalism

Special Date Night Thanks to Minimalism

The title of this blog is simple HAPPY life. We can live as simply as we want but if we don't replace all that time we gained back by not being a slave to our things with new adventure or things we enjoy then our life will be no happier than it was before. Here is an adventure date night that Patrick and I were able to have thanks in part to decluttering.

There are many different philosophies that are used as tools to help you on your minimalism journey. I have created my own process that helps you declutter efficiently without any regrets (and those two things do not usually go hand in hand). Make sure you apply this method to take full advantage of the "Purgatory Box" philosophy as well.

Decluttering can be overwhelming at times so it is a good idea to make sure that you have a safety net so you don't make any hasty decisions that you will later regret. The "Purgatory Box" system is designed so that you don't get rid of anything that you are not ready to part with yet. Go take a look. It could save you a lot of heartache that would have been easily avoidable.
