Having less IS more and here is how it works

Being frugal means carefully choosing what to buy based on your practical needs to create the freedom you never thought existed.

Less is more:

  • Fewer clothes to choose from – more time to get ready in the morning.
  • Fewer accessories – more versatile pieces that go with everything and make a statement.
  • Less objects around your home – means that you open up your space, free your mind from worries about your belongings, slow down your life, embrace practicality and technology over consumerism.
  • Less is more means that your earnings can go further; hence you can feel more fulfilled by your life’s successes and your business – big or small.
  • Adopting the ‘less is more’ approach, means that you can put yourself in the centre of your world as family, friends, and work can be the surrounding circle that cherishes you and gives you positive encouragement to thrive.
  • Less is more at work means that you dismiss the distractions and work on one project at a time. Since you are in charge of your workload, going one step at a time will help you focus and succeed faster and with fewer mistakes.

By forcing ourselves to consider our purchases seriously, we are more likely to buy items we genuinely like and appreciate, rather than accumulating low-cost impulse buys.

The ideal consequence of this way of shopping, if you give it a try, isn’t just to buy less, but also to buy better. 

It’s a philosophy that has something in common with the guiding principle of Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, which has developed a near-religious following.

It dictates that only items that spark joy should have a place in your home!

Amazing how that clarity makes us shift our lives and give it a forum for expressing our dreams.
