Too much stuff. Need a plan to reduce all this clutter. Photo by Andrea Piacquadio on Pexels.

Have you noticed how much extra stuff you have lately?

Well, then maybe it’s time for a seasonal declutter this year.

No, you don’t have to get rid of things that have meaning to you. But what about those things that have been sitting around collecting dust?

Do you still need these things around you? “But I like all my stuff around me.” Ok. Then maybe, begin somewhere; with yourself.

Start with planning, then move on to organizing or go back to your clutter if it’s all you need and know. Stay there, move at your pace.

What’s the Difference Between No Buy v. Low Buy?

Let’s start with the difference between ‘No Buy v. Low Buy’ and take it from there to get you at least thinking about If you feel you have clutter and how reducing it may benefit you.

No Buy

In a nutshell, no buy is where you commit to using what you already have and not buying anything new.

Exceptions are your essentials, of course. 

  • You could decide to try a no-buy plan out for a month if you’d like. Here are four tips to get you started.

  • You can challenge yourself with a no-buy plan with these simple tips.

Low Buy

In a nutshell, low buy is sticking to a plan to buy only what you really need or budget for something, replacing things you use as they run out. And using all the things you have until it needs replacing, etc.

  • How about giving yourself a low buy plan to try for at least a year?

  • Maybe try a low buy challenge to feel if you can be content having more with buying less.

Challenge or Lifestyle?

Some that decide to try the no buy or low buy idea come to find that it’s simply a challenge for oneself to be more mindful of consuming habits, while others discover that it’s a lifestyle linked to minimalism itself.

It’s part of your journey to reduce the unnecessary clutter and how that imparts meaning to you and your lifestyle aspirations.

  • Use this list to see if you can take some small steps to begin the challenge to reduce your clutter today. Try one thing on the list each day for the next 30 days if you can.
  • Check out these simple hacks to get you going in the new direction to begin a no-buy/low buy lifestyle if you’d like.
