It is the season of giving, yet we want to be deliberate about not cluttering our homes and creating more waste. Today, my guest shares how we can be intentional as a way of life and become minimalist moms.
We Talked About
- What is Minimalism?
- Involving kids in our minimalist lifestyle
- Why we don’t need to buy so many things for our kids
- Navigating Minimalism in the Holiday Gift-Giving Season
- How to deal with Birthday parties when you are a Minimalist Mom
Things to Remember
“Live life with intention.”
“People are more important than things.”
“There are so many things in our life that we can’t control, but we can control the amount of things we bring in. We are the gatekeepers of our homes.”
“The stuff doesn’t matter. It’s the relationship.”
“Our job is to be a guide. It’s not to direct their every move.”
“People can live with a lot less than they think they can.”
