Major Benefits of Living With Less

Monday, February 16, 2015

Whether it's your closet, your house, or your email inbox, living with less can mean a less stressful and more simple lifestyle.  Here are some ways to living with less can benefit you.

1. You spend less money.
When you have less stuff and the stuff you do have is only what you need, it makes it easier for you to see what is available, for instance in your closet. You need an outfit for a party so you look at what you have (you know all of it fits because you got rid of what doesn't fit) so you can easily put something together versus getting overwhelmed even glancing at your closet, and then running out to the store in a rush. 

2. You save time.
Once again, if you know where your things are, you won't have to spend time searching around.   If you can't find your box of winter gloves in the closet, it could be because it's buried in clutter. But when everything is organized and purged, you can easily see where you store things.

3. You save energy.
It's so nice being able to calmly and quickly open a drawer and grab exactly what I need... there is no frustration because I never have to frantically search for something since I know where it all is.

4. You have less stress.
This goes hand in hand with time and energy.  I can't remember the last time I was stressed out looking for something. 

5. You are always prepared for company.
Entertaining is so much easier when you don't have to spend tons of time cleaning and decorating.   And you will never be upset when you have an unexpected guest drop by!

What benefits can you think of that would really help you in your own home?
