Have you ever thought about becoming a minimalist homeschool family?
Would you like to have less to clean, less to do, more time, and more joy?
Today we’re going to talk about how minimalism can have a positive impact on your homeschool family.
What Does Minimalism Have To Do With Homeschooling?
You might be wondering what minimalism has to do with homeschooling. Well, you know that raising and educating your children is a full-time job. When you have less stuff, you have less to clean and organize, and as a result, you’ll have more time for the people and activities you care about.
For most people, minimalism has absolutely no appeal. However, if you’ll take a moment to drop your objections and entertain this idea, you might discover that simply leaning toward minimalism could be life-changing.
Leaning toward minimalism might be the beginning of a new way of living.

Why I Want To Become A Minimalist
Hi, my name is Jackie and I’m the host of the HomeSchool ThinkTank Parenting Podcast. I’m not a minimalist, but over the years, I’ve discovered that I’m happier when I have less stuff. You could say that I lean toward minimalism. However, I can’t say that my entire family leans toward minimalism.
For me, having less stuff results in more time for who and what matters to me.
As you begin seeing minimalism as MORE time, money, space, connection and ultimately life, it begins to get easier to release items that have very little value in your life.
By shopping and owning less, I have less to clean, organize, and eventually get rid of.
With less stuff, I have more time to get outdoors, be with my family, and do the things that matter to me.
You could say that I see great value in minimalism and that I aspire to become a true minimalist.
Becoming A Minimalist Homeschool Family
Do you think that you would be a better parent with fewer things to pick up, organize, & clean?
If you had less stuff, do you think that you would have more time, energy, and space for the people you care about?
While we are not a minimalist homeschool family, I know that I am more calm, relaxed, and happy with fewer items around me.
I am certainly happier when I have less stuff to manage.
In essence, with less stuff, I find more time for who and what matters the most to me.
Do you think you might be happier with less stuff?
