Spring Minimizing

Spring sprung a month ago, yet most of us are still procrastinating with the clutter that has mounted since last summer.

The unopened boxes in the basement, garage, and attic.
The unused clothes in the closets, dressers, and bins.
The unwanted junk in the cabinets, drawers, and storage.

Spring Cleaning? Bluck! Who wants to clean all weekend? How boring, lame, dreadful.

Well, you know what’s more fun than Spring Cleaning? Spring Minimizing! And here are two ways you can make decluttering more fun and productive this season.

First, if you feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, join thousands of other minimizers and play our 30-Day Minimalism Game.

Second, if you’re looking for a detailed guide, read our friend Joshua Becker’s newest book, The Minimalist Home: A Room-by-Room Guide to a Decluttered, Focused Life.

Then, share your before-and-after photos with us on Twitter or Instagram. We’ll repost many of our favorites.
