Life easily becomes overwhelming with commitments to friends and family, work demands, and devices consuming your attention.

Life easily becomes overwhelming with commitments to friends and family, work demands, and devices consuming your attention. On busy days, you feel like a hamster racing in its wheel, wrapped in red tape. You begin to wonder if everything in life comes with a price tag. At times, it’s necessary to take a step back and observe how life is going. Is it all too much? Maybe it’s time to simplify. Live a happier and more fulfilling life by getting back to basic and saving money in the process.
1. Redefine"enough" Do you have all that you want or need? Do you have “enough”? Modern culture is build on socially persuading everyone to need more because you deserve it. Once you have a new possession, you must upgrade or update it to keep current, relevant and functional. You spend more to be comfortable, but are you? Have you had enough? For your personal sanity, redefine what enough really means to you: financially, physically, emotionally, morally and more. Forget everyone else’s definition of “enough.” You are enough.
2. Unplug and reclaim your time. Cut the cords and save money by ditching cable and landline. More people are saving money and streaming TV shows directly from the networks online or subscribing to more affordable services such as Netflix or Hulu. This is the way to go if you only watch a few shows anyway, or if you want to cut out excessive TV time. Landlines are also becoming increasingly irrelevant as people use cellphones as their main contact. Reclaim you time and life by cutting the cord.
3. Simplify lifestyle practices. Do you know where your food comes from? Does the smell of commercial cleaning products make you recoil? Do you reuse and repurpose, or do items go straight into the trash? Convenience should make life easier, but you regularly replace products, waste your money and end up doing damage to the environment and perhaps your own health. Take a moment and look at some of the many ways you can get back to lifestyle basics. These things don’t take as long as you think, and you’ll feel a sense of fulfillment and true satisfaction providing for your family this way.
6. Automate your bills. The stress of keeping up with due dates add up. Forgetful moments happen, and late fees and credit dips do, too. Time spent navigating automated systems and getting checks in the mail are more frustrating than they should be. Many companies offer savings when you automate your bills, such as on a consistent monthly phone or internet rate. Save money and time by automating your bills.
7, Choose simple, multipurpose furniture. Bulky, heavy furniture fills up rooms in the house, requires too much cleaning, has limited purpose and might make you feel claustrophobic. Well- built, multipurpose furniture and items in your home will simplify your space, open up a room and provide less stress. Relieve your decorating budget, your time and your sanity, without sacrificing style. Maintaining simplicity in your love life will free up your time and ability to enjoy life more. Live a fulfilling life without filling it with items that hold you back, and save money and your sanity by focusing on simplicity.
