Hi everyone! Sorry I went off the radar for a bit there, my wife wasn’t well and had to undergo surgery, so I was a bit tied up playing nurse. All’s well now, you’ll be pleased to hear, and I’m ready to get stuck back into some blog posts. But there were points over the […] The post Decluttering for stress-relief appeared first on Want Less. ...

If you’re familiar with The Minimalists, you’ll know they’re all about keeping hold of what ‘adds value’ to your life and letting go of the rest. But if you have a pile of unopened cosmetics, how do you know what will add value and what won’t? I’ve been turning that question into a bit of […] The post Brutally honest cosmetics reviews: round three results appeared first on Want Less. ...

This is a guest post by Ali Cornish of the fantastic blog, Everthrive. You should check it out. Many centuries ago, Rene Descartes coined the phrase: ‘I think, therefore I am.’ He believed that the first defining aspect of humanity was that we are creatures of thought; the only reason we know we are truly alive is […] The post The case for independent thinking appeared first on Want Less. ...

Well, you spoke and I listened: I’m reviving my snarky cosmetics reviews. So many readers said they’d like me to reprise the series, so after a brief break (for my own sanity – I can’t stand being this high-maintenance!) they’re back. This month, I will be trying out four neglected beauty products from my cupboard […] The post Back by popular demand: brutally honest cosmetics reviews appeared first on Want Less. ...

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 ...
