I started my minimalist journey after I had my third kid and I knew something had to give. I was standing with my to do list, extremely stressed out and trying to keep up with all things at all times. I first turned to decluttering to reduce the things in our home and then learned how to do some simple planning (bye bye scrap paper) and the rest, they say is history. On the blog today, I’m sharing one must know tip for starting minimalism as a family.

Looking back, I’d probably tell myself to slow way, way down. But that’s just for me. Maybe you will do well on going as fast as humanly possible with your family, right? So yes, read the advice, learn the method, and watch the YouTube.

But in the end, listen to yourself and your family. That’s the must know tip if you are starting minimalism as a family. Honour the way that you work and thrive. Pull from different methods, ideas, and advice if that’s working for you. There’s really no “right” or “wrong” way to start. But, I will tell you this because I’ve seen it to be true 100% of the time:⁣⁣⁣

You will feel soooo good once you’ve started. Making space for the new you and new ways of living as a family!

My personal journey with my family? It was mostly me doing the work, let’s be honest, as I’m home full time with the kids, but my husband was mostly on board (he likes living in a tidy, uncluttered home, but isn’t as intense with the decluttering as I was ha!), so I went ahead with things. I started with reading about the konmari method and went through her process, paired with a simple planning method called the bullet journal method.
