Simple rhythm: checking daily to see if I need to do a load of wash. I don't every day, but staying on top of it keeps things easy. Especially with small wardrobes! // 👉 Sometimes I have a helper when I'm doing laundry. I love that these magnets are easy to access but also easy to tuck away behind closed doors. 😊
Hello all! Sorry iv been a little quiet the last couple of days...needed a little quiet time to get my head straight and to be mumma!
Getting back in my groove today ready to hit the ground running tomorrow!
Been adding products to the website so you lovely lot can shop online too!
I hope your all having a lovely Wednesday and are feel gooood!!
Our latest adventure in #minimalism : we packed up all our dishes and silverware except one set for each of us. We are each responsible for washing and putting away our own set every time we use them. So far, our 9 year old is doing great with this and dishes have been a breeze the last few days!
We are on a "why didn't we do this seven years ago" roll when it comes to home "renovations" these days. Can you spot the differences?
1. The picture frame kept falling off the wall and breaking, so we moved our @lisa.riehl "Waiting" over.
2. I cleaned, plastered and painted the walls, they were quite dinged up.
3. The vent! After six years it occurred to me to measure it ... It fits a standard floor vent cover. $16 later and two cuts into the baseboard ... Dur.
4. We had @tr0utz husband wire an outlet into the water closet where our modem and router live - no more unsightly wires into the main room through the wall.
5. I purchased blank face plates for the outlets that used to house coaxial and audio receiver stuffs. We never used either and now they are baby safe and much less visually cluttered.
We also had the angled window installed 11 months ago, @adam.ryanjames installed a shower set up in our claw foot tub this spring, we gifted ourselves a new hot tub cover with lifter bar for my birthday/Fathers Day, and our deck will finally get stained (by my husband) while I take the boys on a cross-country trip.
Small inexpensive changes that make such a difference! I love this little house ❤️ #homesteading#homestead#minimalisthome#minimalisthouse#minimalistfamily#visualclutter#unclutter#diyhome#smallhouse#smallhome#simplehome#cohesivehome#slowhome

A simple, tidy, uncluttered T-shirt drawer -after, before, and during.
Although there are quite a few shirts, (enough to last a month), simplifying for me is tidying up the spaces I'm not in charge of purging. 😂😂 I have actually attempted to tidy this drawer before but I think I wasn't folding the shirts optimally. I tried the heart method this time and it made all the difference!
Now you can see every shirt and hopefully keeping it this way will be a breeze.
Do you stack shirts or "file" them?
***GiveAway!!!****Thinking about the school year and change of season ahead? I'm giving an Essential Oils Diffusing Class on Facebook tonight and I'm talking all things Fall and oils!! How do we stay healthy during "sick bug" season? What oils can you diffuse to help with school days-specifically motivation, concentration, peace, balance and sleep? What are my favorite recipes for pure, toxic-free Fall scents? (Because candles are seriously scary 😷😷😷). I have such great info planned for tonight!! Follow me and comment Back To School Wellness below for and invite to the FB class! Tag a friend in your comment and if they follow me and comment below I'll send you a wellness roller for your upcoming school year!! 🙌🌿💕 Looking forward to sharing and sending some oily love your way! #backtoschool#essentialoildiffuser#wellnessjourney
H O M E ✨ it's been 3 months since we moved and only NOW do I finally feel settled now that the old sheets and yellowed and ripped newspapers are off our windows and we have lovely white functioning BLINDS and glorious filtered light ✨Seriously feel like a million dollars now. Amazing how easy it is to take little things for granted ✨
The end of the summer activities and beginning of fall ones are really starting to vibe in our home today. A sweet visit from Teddy's first grade teacher really settled us into this cozy afternoon. Looking forward to all the amazing things this eager boy is about to experience in grade school as we prepare for the fall season and a new school year 💕💕
Over 600 Families!!! Earlier this month our online wellness crew @theminimoilists reached the 600 member mark and rising. For those who don't know- I co-run a podcast called @thepracticalminimalists with a dear friend @heather_conkin and recently we decided to sponsor ourselves in a way where we knew the sponsorship gave value to others and kept us from needing to reach out to or accept offers from companies that didn't quite align with our values. And it's an honor, a blessing, and a true privilege to be helping 600+ people give their people more simplicity, wellness, and freedom along the way!
Curious? My husband David is the smartest person I know and the reason we fell in love with essential oils, #youngliving , and the science behind it all. AND he was just interviewed by us in our latest bonus episode to help you understand 1. How #essentialoils can be beneficial for you and your family, 2. How you can get started in a way that helps support the show, and 3. How a skeptic turned believer! ❤️Episode link in profile or up on iTunes or here: http://www.thepractical-minimalists.com/podcast/davidjonesbonus
