I’m an essentialist, which means I own what I love and need, and no more.
Everything I have is something I use. All of my clothes are worn. There’s nothing that sits on a shelf or hangs in my closet waiting for the day when I’ll need it or feel like wearing it.
I’m not a minimalist — I don’t go without the things I want in my life — but I do get rid of anything I don’t love and use. And that, my friend, is the key to creating your personal retreat.
You don’t have to have a picture-perfect home that looks good on social media, you only need to use the space you have well, and make it work for you. A space that feels good, reflects your personality, and replenishes your energy.
Because when you feel good at home, you feel better everywhere else.
Imagine how your life would change if you freed up your time and the mental exhaustion of sifting through the clutter of unneeded things. On average, a person spends 3,680 hours in their lifetime searching for misplaced items.

Decide on a single starting point — it’s important to organize one room or space at a time to prevent overwhelm.
Distribute all items in the space or room into categories.
Determine where you’ll store the items you’ll be keeping. Having homes for all your items eliminates the need for constant decision making.
Design a system for storing items. Keep efficiency and function as the top priorities. Containers aren’t always necessary but they can be used to help keep items together.
