I have had so many people ask me about Minimalism. They all want to know how on earth to start!
When you are faced with all this stuff in your home and have decided to make the jump… it’s daunting! I mean… where in the holy heck of hummus do you even start!?

Lastly, I want to introduce you to a blogger I hold dear to my heart. She is a respectful parent *check* an unschooler *double check* AND a minimalist *triple check!* Racheous shows you round her gorgeous home here. I love seeing what minimalism looks like for other people and it really inspires me to do more decluttering on my minimalism journey!
