How Less is More in Business and Life with Nadine Riseham
We are all living with so much stuff in our lives, not only in our houses but in our workspaces, in our cars, in our finances, in our relationships and in our minds.
We need to declutter and live more minimally and appreciate having more minimal space. ‘Nothing changes, if nothing changes’, read that quote again and you will quickly realise that if you do not make a change, your life will just continue to be one big mess.
When your things are not serving you any more, it’s not being valued or appreciated; then it is clutter.
Do you know that most Australian houses have $4500 worth of unused junk just sitting around, imagine what you could do with this money. We are literally turning into a nation of junk junkies.
There seems to be instilled in us a habit of not being able to throw things away, from shoes to phones even after their life has come to an end. You might be asking me what is clutter, or how do I know? When your things are not serving you any more, it’s not being valued or appreciated; then it is clutter.
How To Minimise the Clutter
The most troubling item for people to get rid of is clothes, generally due to the fact that many people believe that they will fit back into them one day.
Quick Tip: find a home for your items straight away and if you cannot, then it does not have a place and you need to get rid of it.
Do I Need To Declutter?
The answer is yes, everyone does, in all areas of their life.
Life is too short to be cluttered by things. You need to own your time now and be present in the moment and too much stuff hampers this. Another aspect to the decluttering process is minimalism.
When I learnt about this movement it literally changed my whole world. Do not think minimalism is just about having white walls and all this bare space, it is so much more than that. It is a whole mindset shift that can be adapted to every part of your life.
It is all about living with less and really appreciating people and experiences, rather than just stuff. Two guys called The Minimalists, started this movement about ten years ago and have a very large following and definitely worth you checking out.
You do not have to be extreme and have one plate, one cup, one bowl or get rid of your book collection. Minimalism comes in different forms and you can certainly be a minimalist in most of your life but yet have an area that is given a bit of lee way.
You make up your own rules and then stick to it. This is where I can help you stay on top of it and live your best life.

Hi there, my name is Nadine and I want to help you with your decluttering journey, so come and Declutter with Me!
I have always been interested in organisation and living a cleaner lifestyle. But it was only last April that I came across minimalism. This brought a whole new outlook on life for me and made me realise that living with less and appreciating blank space is the future. Having a decluttered mind not only helps with your home but also your relationships, your finances and your mind. I am also a single parent to four amazing children and an accountant.
