Simplify everything that you can. A lot of us find the holiday season stressful when it is supposed to be fun. This is because we put unnecessary pressure on ourselves to make everything perfect.
Find the perfect gifts, spend the right amount of money, decorate a certain way, host the perfect party, and the list goes on.

What is a Minimalist Christmas Tree?
A minimalist Christmas tree can mean something different to everyone. My definition is that the tree is simple. Maybe there aren’t a lot of branches.
The tree could be very tall and thin, or smaller than the average Christmas tree. The decor on the tree might be very simple or all one color.
Since the definition of minimalism is different for everyone so is a minimalist Christmas tree, but for the sake of this post, I am finding 5 Minimalist Christmas Trees that are very unique.

This year I am planning on trying out some new Christmas traditions. Making memories can boil down to all your fun family traditions. I remember growing up making Christmas cookies, our own ornaments, and sending cards every December leading up to Christmas.
The definition of tradition is; something that is handed down.

Americans spend a lot of money on gifts, the average American spends $920 per person on holiday gifts, and the sad thing is a lot of these gifts go in the trash! 31% of people regift the presents they receive and 4% actually throw them away.
This sounds horrible, but it can be fixed with the gift of an experience.
When I was younger I kept everything! I would keep little scraps of paper and tickets. Keeping every card that was ever given to me! I totally understand how Christmas decorations can be sentimental, but I also don’t want to store 5 bins of decor that I only use once a year.
Here are five simple ways to cut down on your Christmas decor before it takes over your entire storage area. Read More Here

December is here and Christmas is only a few weeks away. We have spent the last year decluttering our home and simplifying what we have kept. I am not looking forward to filling our house back up any time soon.
I decided to come up with a simple gift guide for all the minimalists with kids. We will be getting our kids gifts this year, but they might not be something they store in their room.
When looking for a gift I always try to find something that’s high quality and durable. We love gifts that get our children thinking outside the box and interacting with us. I try to steer clear of toys that make a lot of noise and anything fragile. Read More Here
We are using some homemade reusable Christmas gift bags this year. These simple bags are super easy to make.
Reusable gift bags are eco-friendly and super cute. “Americans spend more than $7 billion on wrapping paper each year, according to Sundale Research.” What I like about this simple craft is you make it one time and you are done forever!
Hopefully a small change, like not using as much wrapping paper, will amount to a larger impact on helping the environment. I like to say every little bit helps. I found this question when researching how much waste is created by wrapping paper. Read More Here
