Minimalist Monday: Wallet Clean Out Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Minimalist

You don't always have to take on a big project to kick off your minimalist journey. The important thing is to just start, even if it's something small.

Minimalist Monday: DIY Baking Soda Dispenser (Guest Post By Win A Visit Winner, Amy!) Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Minimalist Guests

Today's Minimalist Monday post is about something very near and dear to my heart: baking soda!

Minimalist Monday: What Paper Docs to Keep & Shred (How to Purge Financial Clutter & Manage Household Records) Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Minimalist

Now that tax season is upon us, I thought I'd share a snippet from my first minimalist book, Minimalist Monday: Declutter Your Way to a Zen Home. (You can order it in all electronic forms (PDF, Kindle, Nook, etc) here.)

Admittedly, weeding through stacks of papers isn't what I would call a good time, but it's so worth it! (It shouldn't take more than an hour or so, either).

Tip from the book: Make it a ...
