Minimalism and Home Decluttering – Friday Favorites #5

I may make a commission from the links within this post. Learn more.

Happy Friday everyone! I feel like it has been forever since I have done a Friday Favorites [only like 3 weeks]! Today we are focusing on minimalism and home decluttering.

Lately, I have become obsessed with decluttering videos, posts, and even some hands on experience, as you have probably read in my previous posts.

I am going to be sharing some links with you that were responsible for creating a spark to declutter my stored items and book collection! So you know these will be good! 🙂

We are focusing on minimalism and home decluttering. Lately, I have become obsessed with decluttering videos, posts, and even some hands on experience, as you have probably read in my previous posts.

Minimalism and Home Decluttering

1 // Decor By The Seashore

I found this post on Pinterest a few weeks ago. I love how thorough it is, and how simple it seems to declutter.

For my personal declutter, I made a list of what I felt I could declutter more and what I have not really decluttered in a while. This post helped me identify more areas to work in than I thought was possible.

2 // Christine Kobzeff’s Declutter Playlist

If you read my previous post, 250+ More Things I Have Tossed After I Downsized, you may wonder who the YouTuber is that I had mentioned. Well, it was Christine Kobzeff!

I have followed her channel for a few months, and one day her playlist popped up on my recommendations. I watched it and was amazed at how different her life was a few years ago.

This is why I felt the need to purge my home items I was storing. Seeing her transformation made me realize that I will likely be a completely different person as well in a few years.

3 // Aubrey Cullins

Recently her channel is all about decluttering her life. She shares videos with very specific things that she wants to declutter. She talks about why she has each item and what her intentions are with the item as far as for keeping, selling, or donating.

I enjoy her videos because she reminds me a lot of myself when I started my minimalist journey.

4 // Declutter Your Computer by

If you spend any time on the computer, you know how easily it can become cluttered with icons all over the screen and dozens of files. This post walks you through each step to help your computer not be so cluttered.

While I have not made it to this part of my decluttering process, I will follow this advice once I get there.

5 // Overwhelmed to Organized – Free Course!

Of course, your physical possessions are not the only thing that can be cluttered and filled with junk. You also have to look at yourself.

Are you overwhelmed, running on fumes, or simply frustrated?! Then take this free course to help you recover from all of the craziness! I just started the other day, and I am so thankful already for it!

Terryn is a dear blogger friend of mine, and what she is doing with this course is going to change lives! Let her change yours!

Do I have you inspired enough to start your decluttering frenzy?! I hope so! If not, check back next week!

I am keeping focus on decluttering, because it seems to be everyone’s favorite topic of discussion!

    Erin! I love your Friday posts and woke up to this one in my inbox this morning. I was so surprised to see you mention my course, girlie! Maybe it was the lack of coffee so early, but your sweet words brought tears to my eyes. Thank you!

    These are awesome! I’ve been looking around our house, and realizing we need to get rid of so much stuff!!! It’s just too much and it’s overwhelming to me. I’m going to check a few of these out.

    I love the ideas for decluttering. Over the last few months I’ve been trying to do it as much as possible but it’s always so hard to figure out where to start!

      I feel your pain! I try to only have a recycling bin on my desktop and create folders for everything else. It has taken a lot of work to get it that way, but now I need to clean out all of my folders because of this method! haha!
