This numbers are shocking. To think that we live in a society in which screens everywhere tell us what to buy, even though we have no need for it. From there comes our socially programmed way of thinking, in which we become hoarders and forget that we must let go of certain things. We forget that we change, evolve, and we get stuck in the past.

But, what really is minimalism? The general definition is: the ability so simplify without losing any quality. To me minimalism is, the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from it.

It is difficult, to transition from our normal way of thinking into a more organic mindset. However, it is possible. Below are a few things you can do to start becoming a minimalist in your home. This will shape your way of thinking and help you declutter things on your mind.
