5 Small Minimalistic Changes

If you can do something. Just a small tiny change then why wouldn't you? Because that small change can save lives. These are just some of the small changes I have made, some of them I have always done. And if you want to go all out and clear your clutter then check out my post right here.
Use tote bags
Out with the plastic and in with the tote bags! Easy to throw in a bag and have ready for when it is needed. Also just a bit.. actually much cuter than plastic bags. At least that's what I think. And I think the planet agrees. 

Save glass jars for storage
I use glass jars in my creative storage but you can also use it in the kitchen to store nuts, seeds, pasta, anything really. Use then in your beauty space to store cotton swabs, cotton pads, bobby pins or again, anything really. You can also use then as vases like I did in the DIYs right here: Polka dot vase,

Thrift as much as you can
Thrifting, reusing and upcycling is something I am very passionate about. Everything besides my bed is basically thrifted and I love it. You can find the most amazing and unique things at thrift stores. Not only do you save a ton of money but you also help the planet. Here are some helpful thrifting tips

Give to thrift stores
Unless it is ruined or very very used I give it to thrift stores. Books, clothes, decorative items, everything. Also those glass jars can be thrifted. Why not let another person have the benefit instead of throwing it out?

Borrow books from the library
I have since I was little always borrowed books from the library. The I started buying books at the thrift store. Then I started buying books as new. Now I threw out (to the thrift store) over 100 books and have only a handful favorites.
