Hello and welcome to Mostly Mindful! If you want to declutter your life, you’re definitely in the right place.

Our aim with this blog is to make minimalism more-ish: more appealing, more fun, more doable, more everything, except more stuff.

We have three main pillars that we focus on:
• Minimalism
• Sustainability
• Eating a plant-based diet

By sharing the knowledge we’ve gleaned since downsizing, paying off our debt and becoming vegan, we aim to help our readers make similar life decluttering changes, in their own lives, too.

Truth be told, we’d love nothing more than to inspire the whole world to view minimalism as more-ish! For now though, we’ll start with visitors to our blog (like you!).

Disclaimer: We’re not doctors or anything, so be sure to take any advice we offer with a pinch of sustainably sourced Himalayan salt.
