Once you end closet chaos, your mornings open up, you spend less, and you will begin to find confidence in who you are instead of what you wear.

“Your home is living space, not storage space.” —Francine Jay
Consider the benefits of living in a smaller home: less expense, less worry, less upkeep. In other words, more time, more money, more freedom, and more opportunity.

Host a garage sale. Raise money for orphan care.

If you pay much attention to the world of retail sales, you will notice a trend: worry. They seem unable to get America's largest generation onboard with consumption.
For a number of reasons, millennials appear to be a generation hard-wired for minimalism. I hope the trend continues.

The very perk we believe is designed to benefit us is actually designed to benefit the store that now has our money.

When most people read about billionaires giving away money, their first reaction is typically, “Well that’s easy for them to say… if I had that kind of money, I would be generous too.” And unfortunately, the stories we most need to hear are often the hardest to find.
Everywhere I go, I meet people living passionately generous lives. Their stories need to be told. For in them, we find greater inspiration and motivation.

It was an honor to be interviewed by +Lori Deschene for Tiny Buddha.
 
“I want people to realize that their lives are too valuable to waste chasing and accumulating material possessions. I want people to know they were designed to accomplish more significant things than filling a big house with a lot of stuff. And I want them to realize that all the stuff they own is actually keeping them from fulfilling their biggest dreams.” ~Joshua Becker

A goal without a plan is just wishful thinking.
Saying you want something is one thing, doing something about it is very different. We prove what we desire most by our actions, not by our words.

Whether we like it or not, our kids are soaking up values from us every day about how to live, how to work, and how to spend money. And if we are constantly desiring things we don’t need, why would we expect anything else from them?
No wonder our kids ask us to buy items at the store... they've seen us do it a thousand times before.

Often times, marketers make promises they can't possibly keep. Here were eight I noticed during this year's Super Bowl.

I want my home to be welcoming. I want it to be a place where my family feels comfortable, a place where it’s easy for us to enjoy time together, and a place that helps us each do our own work. What do you want your home to be?
What do you want your home to be? Make plans now to start the new year in a space that feels more peaceful and more purposeful.
