This kind of clutter can weigh down a person’s entire lifestyle.

Get Rid Of What You Don’t Need

If you want to have a minimalist home, the first thing that you need to do is get rid of all the excess stuff that is weighing you down, taking up extra space, and keeping you from finding the things that you do need. Go through every single room and pull out everything that you have not used in the past year.

Plenty of us have convinced ourselves that we will re-purpose our old junk into some kind of genius Pinterest masterpiece, but the fact is, we won’t do that. Put the stuff into trash bags and take it to a donation center for a thrift store or local charity. Just get rid of it.
