6 Things Minimalists Always Do to Maintain a Tidy Home

Enforcing a “One In, One Out” Rule

With a ‘one in, one out’ mentality, you will no longer be accumulating, but rather replacing what needs to be replaced

Keeping Ongoing Shopping Lists

If you find yourself thinking about buying something new, you can check the list to see if you actually need it

Turns out, you don’t need yet another throw blanket when you already have a half dozen and no more room for another.

Keeping a Donation Basket Nearby

What good is your donation bin if it’s tucked away in the deep, dark corners of a rarely used closet? Instead, place a medium-sized basket dedicated to items you want to donate in a high-use area like an entryway or mudroom.

Decanting Pantry Goods

Decanting food like cereal, snacks, and pasta is a great way to immediately see what you have so you don’t overbuy

Before heading to the store, open your pantry to quickly see which canisters are still full.

Avoiding Buying in Bulk

Buying in bulk seems like a financially responsible decision. That is, until you’re drowning in more bags of coffee beans than your pantry can accommodate.
