If you haven't noticed, we're all about simple here at Dirty Knees Soap Co. I mean... when was the last time you ran across a high quality lotion that contains only 7 ingredients?!
I know, right?! Good luck, seriously.
Simple is good. Simple isn't complicated. Simple is relaxing. Simple is contented.
Eliminate the unnecessary and move towards a more peaceful, mindful, and productive way of life.
Here are my TOP 5 TIPS for LIVING SIMPLE:
Toss Excess Paper. Scan into a program like Evernote (we get no kickbacks from Evernote, but we are a loyal fan!) Having a hard time parting with your kids' artwork? Take a picture of it. Save to a folder, or... open an email account in your child's name and send it to that email address with a note. When your child is old enough to appreciate it, hand over the login info for the email.
De-Clutter Your Email Account. Turn off unnecessary notifications from social media and unsubscribe from newsletters you don't read. Use the search feature in your email to find all those "Amazon" notifications you haven't deleted, but don't need. Create filters for emails you need to categorize.
Do A Clean Sweep Of Your Closet. Donate items you no longer need and, for goodness sake, toss those irreparable socks and undies.
- Step Away From The Online Calendars and To Do Lists. Don't get be wrong, smart phones certainly have their place. However, if you're anything like me... the smaller "I'll remember to do that" things get missed, which ultimately results in irritation, annoyance, and even disappointment. Who needs that?! Take 5 minutes and sit down at the end of the day with a piece of paper and a pencil. Write out your to-dos for the next day. For example, 1) order flowers for Gran, 2) call the groomer, 3) check the henhouse for eggs. The old adage that physically checking items off a list makes a person feel better... well, it still works!
- Put Tasks On Auto-Pilot! These days, you can set up auto-payments for bills (no more late fees), have groceries delivered on a schedule, and even have your body products delivered automatically. Save 25% on your first auto-ship order. Use code DIRTY10 at checkout.
