Do you dream of a life without hours of cleaning on the weekends? Where you can walk into a room without having a list of ten things to do running through your head? Less laundry? More time to do what you love?
In November 2011, our family got really serious about decluttering. We had our ups and downs, but by 2015 we were ready to give most everything up. We are currently living out of a camper trailer travelling around Australia for 12 months.
As a family with three young children, most people said it was going to be impossible to live simply. What about their LEGO? What about craft supplies, puzzles, books, and all the birthday presents? But none of that matters once you recognise other priorities in life.

It is not easy to go against the trend in society of more, more, more… but it is possible! With passion, practical information, and a steady stream of inspiration to keep you motivated – we hope your family will be on the way to living clutter free very soon.
Here we offer three types of resources for your clutter free journey:
#1 Clutter Free Inspiration for Grown-Ups.
In these posts you can find featured articles and/or videos that challenge the traditional thinking about “stuff.” When we question our choices instead of doing things out of habit, we can work towards creating a life we love. There are also some personal reflections about why living clutter free leads to a more joyful, fulfilling life.
#2 Clutter Free Inspiration for Kids.
Living clutter free is a lifestyle choice, and it is easiest if everyone in the household is working to maintain it. These posts can help you open discussions with your kids and aspire towards clutter free living together. They feature videos, activities, conversation starters and more.

If you aren’t going to spend your time organising a house full of stuff or playing with the latest toy available at Target, what will you do?? We share a new clutter free entertainment idea for the family every week or so – check out the archives here.
