Although I’m not a 'proper' minimalist, I’ve always strived to live with less and clear out clutter. That doesn't mean just clearing out the wardrobes, but also getting rid of kitchen items I don't use any more, and home decor that no longer serves a purpose.
Did you go shopping after Christmas and get things that were a 'good buy' but you knew deep inside you’d probably never use? That ‘it will be good for work’ shirt that never makes it to your office, or a kitchen knife that was cheap (for a reason - it will be blunt and/or rusted in a month) will make it to the landfill fast. And that’s the primary concern for first world countries - our landfills are growing while we keep living in cluttered homes, stuffed with things we don't need (and often don't even like).
Make it your priority in 2019 to declutter, and to get to a minimalist level you are comfortable with. Don't buy quantity, but quality! It will cost you less in the long run, and will make you feel lighter and better about yourself and the impact you’re having on the environment.
Here are a few tips on decluttering efficiently:
