But, productivity can come at the cost of moving the needle forward in your life if you lose sight of your priorities. Think about your to do list…. Maybe it’s a list of things you want to get done today. Maybe it’s a list of things you need to do tomorrow. Or if you’re like many people, your to do list is a running list of things you think about and jot down so you don’t forget. The problem is that the items on a to do list are not prioritized. They keep you busy, but busy is not the same as productive. And worse yet, productive is not the same as meaningful. That’s why you NEED a Stop Doing List. This episode of the Wannabe Minimalist Show will help you discover: • the truth about to do lists and why they are the end-all-be-all • how to set priorities for you and your family • ways to give yourself grace around being perfect • 5 things you can add to your stop doing list - like TODAY Subscribe & Review Are you subscribed to the Wannabe Minimalist Show podcast?

You know, like the ones you have read on countless blogs about how this great epiphany just hit one day? Or a moment when you just could’t take it anymore? Well, today’s guest will help you realize that you don’t need to wait for a big life change or a crisis to start your journey to a more intentional life. It’s easy to start living more like a minimalist and you can do it today. You can start by giving everything you own a home. That’s exactly what Jenna did. And she knows her stuff. As a mom who always thought she lived tiny (and compared to many of us she does), she realized that her home was still messy because as a self-proclaimed “messy person” she struggled with putting things away. Giving everything she owns a home changed the way Jenna viewed her stuff, let her declutter things that no longer had a place to go, and enables her, her husband, and 3 kids to live comfortably in about 800 square feet. Jenna Arvidson gives moms permission to live differently. She teaches how to simplify your home and your day so you have time and space for what matters most. This episode of the Wannabe Minimalist Show will help you discover: - what it means to give your items a home - why it’s incredibly important to give everything you own a home - how to give your items a place to live - a new outlook for starting and ending your days that have made a huge impact - the best minimalism advice Jenna ever received Subscribe & Review Are you subscribed to the Wannabe Minimalist Show podcast?

Instead of only replying to her, I thought it was advice we could all learn from. Here’s are some of my best ideas for creative ways to store your stuff when you have no closets.

I guarantee there are some ideas here that you have NEVER heard before. So jump on in. This episode of the Wannabe Minimalist Show will help you discover: • what kind of furniture is best for small homes • why I think doors are some of the most underutilized space and what to do about it • creative storage ideas for the kitchen so you can clear off your counters • how paint can help with your storage dilemma • and the coolest idea the designers came up for storing extra chairs (hint: I don’t make you wait to the end to find out) Subscribe & Review Are you subscribed to the Wannabe Minimalist Show podcast?

Why We Love Our Stuff

********************** Links mentioned in this episode: (some links are affiliate links) JOIN THE WANNABE MINIMALIST FACEBOOK GROUP GET YOUR FREE HOME SYSTEM POWER PACK SUBSCRIBE TO WANNABE CLUTTER FREE DOWNLOAD A TRANSCRIPT FOR THIS EPISODE ********************** Music: Happy by MBB https://soundcloud.com/mbbofficial Creative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported — CC BY-SA 3.0 Free Download / Stream: https://bit.ly/Happy-MBB Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/g6swHZbWtRc ********************** Ever wonder why we are so attached to the things we own? From a young age, even before we can talk and verbalize our feelings, humans show that they value their things over things that are not theirs. But, as a parent you probably already know this. You’ve experienced teaching (or trying to teach) your child to share. There are scientific reasons for why you and I feel attached to things, but they do not define who we are. However, as you embark on the path toward minimalism, it can be extremely helpful to learn about the reasons behind why we love our stuff, why we want more, and how to be happy with decluttering like a minimalist. So join me on the latest episode of The Wannabe Minimalist Show where we look at the science behind materialism and why we love our stuff so much. It’s the perfect way to end 2019 as we get ready for the New Year (and New DECADE). If you are looking to declutter in 2020, don’t forget to join my private Wannabe Minimalist Group on Facebook. We’re starting a 21-Day Decluttering Challenge on January 11th, but sign up now to introduce yourself, get prepared for the challenge, and to find motivation. By the end of the month, you’ll have decluttered your whole home and will be ready to tackle the New Decade on your terms. What have you got to lose (other than all that extra stuff of course!)?
