Why I’m Doing a Minimalism Reset & Just Save June 2020

Taking a true break from the blog without expectations, or putting pressure on myself has been nice and needed. During this quarantine I’ve had so much time to reflect on where I am, where I want to be, and what’s next. I’ve decided it’s time for a reset.

I have so many goals that I want to achieve and things I want to accomplish and it will all work out in time. I tend to stress easily, so I’m trying to reduce that by being more intentional and getting back to the basics of why I became a minimalist in the first place.

WHY I’M DOING A MINIMALISM RESET

Since the beginning of the year I’ve lost all motivation when it comes to being intentional about how I live. I was just going through the motions without any thought. So I’ve taken the past month to truly get intentional again about what is in my home and rid of the things that no longer serve me. I have a bunch of items to sell and donate that I plan to tackle during June.

While doing this minimalism reset I’ve decided to take on “Just Save June”, where I go a month without spending on anything unless it’s a necessity. My motivation is to get back to the basics. Be more intentional about the purchases I make and not spend mindlessly.

JUST SAVE JUNE (2020 no-spend month)

WHAT I CAN SPEND MONEY ON

  1. rent & utilities
  2. tithes
  3. transportation
  4. phone
  5. internet
  6. food
  7. healthcare – doctor’s visits, medicine
  8. gifts for others – graduation presents & father’s day

RULES

  • only replace basic toiletries and household items
  • only eat out TWICE a week
  • NECESSITIES ABOVE ONLY!

I’ve taken part in a no-spend month before, so I’m interested to see what I run out of this month. I didn’t prepare by buying a bunch, so if I need to buy some things I will but only if I run out. I’ll do a recap towards the end of the month, as well.

I’m not the person to stick to a no-spend unless I literally have to, but I’m trying to think more about what I’m buying and why, like, should I get more books, I’ve really only bought books I know I love, but with the libraries closed, I’ve been tempted. I tend to think minimalism in getting rid of stuff, but that cycle is wasteful if I don’t stop buying (I swear I’m a shopaholic).

I completely understand that cycle. But focusing on what you like vs what you don’t and being more intentional about it all is great too!
