  • Live simple, live free

    :salams

    As you know that I am currently engrossed with the idea of frugal and simple living. I'd like to make a thread about it containing some tips (not all my own tips) from various sources in the internet. Hope we can all benefit from this.

    The first stage to live simple is........

    DE-CLUTTERING YOUR WARDROBE
    .
    ........... especially for sisters :D

    We sometimes buy clothes impulsively. When we see clothes are on sale, we directly want to buy it. Learn from men. Men will not buy anything they don't like, eventhough it's v. cheap. They buy something they really wanna buy! That's the key.

    Back to wardrobes. It's time for you to organize your wardrobes. How many shirts, skirts, Tshirts, jeans that you haven't worn in 6 months? Better get rid of them quickly for charity may be. I did once last month. And the feelings when the bulk of clothes were gone was..... irreplaceable.

    For a starter, here are some little good tips I found from the internet.


    How To Declutter Your Wardrobe: Tips for Simplifying Closets & Clothes
    1. Take everything out of your closet.


    2. Make space on the floor for three different piles: keep, donate, toss. 3. Find your favorite signature items and accessories (if any). Keep those. Build flexible outfits around items you wear often.

    4. Decide what to get rid of:6. Keep your clothes in view.

    So, you guys ready to do this first step???? :D

    Will update soon with more tips :insha:

    Any tips from all of you are truly welcomed as well :up:

      The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “It will be said to the companion of the Qur’an: ‘Read, and ascend, and recite as you used to recite in the [previous] world, for your status will be according to the last verse that you recite.’” [At-Tirmidhi (2914) and Abu Dawood (1464)]

        It is so hard at first. I was like.....oohhh nooo I love these clothes. I can't let them go. lol. But after they were all gone and I saw neat wardrobe, it was addictive. I would like to do more and more de-cluttering. lol.

            One of my tips is that which i try and practise,
            Walk leisurely on a Sunday or a holiday and enjoy the quiteness and beauty of Allah SWTs creation around you.

            Simple yet effective stress relief.

              Agree. Enjoying nature makes us think less about materialistic things. Instead of strolling around at malls, doing hiking, mountaineering, or just a walk by the sea is much better, for our health as well. And it makes us more grateful to Allah :swt: :insha:

                    I would love to live technology free for a month and see how it feels.
                    The concept of Muslim Village probably will fulfill this criteria.

                          In simple terms think of it in this way:
                          You die- imagine the poor person who has to sort through your crap!!
                          My nana was so simple he barely owned anything- not cos he couldn't lol he had plenty of money. He just didn't feel the need to. Simple man simple life
                          *~* Learn Patience from Aasiyah (RA); Loyalty from Khadhija (RA); Sincerity from Aisha (RA) and Steadfastness from Fatima (RA).*~*

                            True that. Especially if people die leaving much debts behind. It just seems not fair for the family.....
