Why A Small Life is a Better Life

Living “A Smaller Life” involves minimizing, organizing, learning how to DIY and how to be a bit more self sufficient. When you reduce the clutter and have a place for all your essential items, you don’t spend valuable time searching for your stuff. Your level of frustration with any undertaking is reduced and the pleasure you find in all pursuits increases.

A place for everything and everything in its place is more than just keeping things neat, it improves your quality of life. A Smaller Life is a better life.

Living small means being more self sufficient. Plan ahead to reduce the need for maintenance, then choose the best tools and do what you can yourself. It will make your life easier and help you stay in control of costs, stress and the quality of the work.

Find ways to minimize the physical, visual and mental clutter in your life, so you can enjoy what matters — and let go of what doesn’t.
