Starting of with minimalism 

It’s a learning curve to start with minimalism if you have as much stuff as I do. But in the past days I’ve gotten rid of so much things without missing it. Here’s how 

The notebook 

Not the movie. An actual book guys. In this book I write down what I use. For example my makeup. I’m not very adventurous with my makeup. I like what I like and I want simplicity. A couple of days ago I did my routine and afterwards I wrote down what I used. All the things I didn’t use I put in a box.

Getting rid of it

After a couple of days I didn’t miss the products. As long as you don’t miss something you don’t need it. If I don’t used the products I will go and throw them away.

What I do now is every day I look at a small airia that will take me less that 10 minutes and do that. The big change is that after that first task is completed I want to do a second task.

#3 music 

I’m not going to listen to full albums on my phone so I just keep my favourite playlists. The rest is simply not important.

#4 games 

We all have games on our phone. Let’s be real if your a gamer you probably have a PlayStation or Xbox at home. Can’t you wait just a little?

#5 text messages end email 

Unsubscribe to the emails you don’t want and delete all your texts. If there is a important message you want to keep take a screen shot.

#6 reevaluate your apps monthly 

Check what you are using and delete the apps you tought you would use.
