Could you get by wearing the same handful of outfits for the next few months? Courtney Carver’s wildly popular capsule wardrobe challenge Project 333 asks people to do just that: wearing only 33 items, including clothes, coats, shoes and accessories, for a three-month period. I’ve reached the end of my Project 333 challenge and if […] The post 10 lessons from Project 333: the ups and downs of my capsule wardrobe ...

I’m a little tipsy as I write this, so please bear with me. I have had a few celebration drinks this evening because, as of today, July 1, 2017, for the first time in my adult life…I am debt-free! I’m still not sure how I did it, quite frankly, and don’t ask me how I […] The post Goodbye debt, it’s been…memorable appeared first on Want Less. ...

Urgh. I’ve been avoiding writing this post. So much so, I haven’t written anything on this blog for weeks. Sorry for disappearing for a while. Here’s what’s happened: More than a year ago, I publicly committed to paying off all my debts by June, 2017. Yup, the June 2017 we’re currently screaming towards the end […] The post I made a big money mistake. And I’m blaming Japan appeared first on ...

Phew! I’ve just got back from a whistle-stop visit to the other end of the country for my gorgeous little niece’s Christening. The travelling was exhausting, but it was fantastic to have a big family get-together. While we all tucked into lunch, my sister put up a wooden ‘wishing tree’ and invited the guests to […] The post Advice for the next generation appeared first on Want Less. ...

  If I’m going to get all wholesome in the garden, I like there to be a drink at the end of it. I’ve already written about how I created a fruit liqueur using cherries from our tree. Now I’ve found a way to brighten up cheap cocktails. We received some borage seeds as a […] The post Ice, ice baby appeared first on Want Less. ...

I think I’ve come up with a win-win-win. Bear with me, but I reckon it’s a way that: I can give personal recommendations for any tools I’m using to simplify my life and improve my finances; You can get the unbiased lowdown and decide whether they might work for you; And, as an added bonus, […] The post A non-grubby way to use affiliate links on Want Less appeared first on ...

What is it about completing a challenge that feels so damn good? Is it the illusory sense that an uncaring universe is giving you a pat on the head? Is it the feeling that you’ve somehow got one over on your usually lazy, fickle or easily distracted nature by dazzling it with arbitrary goals? I’m […] The post Taking on the original capsule wardrobe challenge appeared first on Want Less. ...

This is a guest post by LM Radja. I’ve been drifting along this minimalism path for quite some time now. I’ve seen, read and listened to some extremists, some middle-of-the-road folks and some folks who just struggle with the process. As I watch the movement become more mainstream, I wonder where it will take the […] The post Numbers and the lies we tell ourselves appeared first on Want Less. ...

Beauty products: are they magic potions or huge great cons? My intrepid experiment to find out continues. As a bit of a re-cap, I’m a low-maintenance person who prefers a night out in the pub to a day in a spa. But in an effort to declutter my bedside cabinet of all its abandoned products, […] The post Low-maintenance versus high-maintenance beauty regimes: round two results appeared first on Want Less. ...

“Oh, for fuck’s sake,” I snapped to myself at the cashpoint. In the process of getting money out, I had somehow tipped up my purse and let all my bank cards scatter over the city-centre street. When I bent to pick them up, more cards fell out. Then the umbrella handle I was precariously balancing […] The post Card-tastrophe appeared first on Want Less. ...
