Simplicity is Beauty: Tips for A Simple Life

You’ve probably heard that adage one too many times, but the fact of the matter is that it still holds true even today. All around you, you see people going crazy over the latest trends, spending their money on purchasing these trends, and regretting all their purchases even before the day is over. There is very little to be had or gained from a life that is extravagant and ostentatious. Soon enough you’ll realize that while there is just one life to live, it’s still loads better to live this life with a clearer sense of direction.

Such direction can be better achieved with a simple lifestyle. Of course, simplicity might seem to be the unpopular opinion these days, but there’s much to learn from living the kind of life that is not lived all over the place, so to speak. Here are some clear and practical tips on how to live a simpler life.

You might want to live in a smaller house.

 Smaller house means more minimal maintenance, which means less costs on your part. Let go of those desires to own a castle-like mansion; at the end of the day you won’t be needing all those rooms, anyway.

Buy used first

Second, you might also want to follow this principle: buy used first. Buying used means that you get to purchase items at a pre-loved and lower price. What’s more, you’ll also be purchasing items that come with a rich history (just make sure you do your research and you know the owner quite well enough to say that the item has been well taken care of).

You can work on your bad habit of impulse buying.

 Get a new habit, one that’s more worthwhile than spending hours on the computer looking for the newest Park N Shop coupon discount, or the latest Abubot discount code. This habit is a trap that’s only going to make you spend more than you intended.

At the end of the day, the choice for simplicity is and will always be yours to take and make. The key is to begin as early as today, so that you won’t take the adjustment period too hard. Enjoy the simple life.
