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?
Learn how having less and leaning toward minimalism can improve your life.
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 little 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 fewer items 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.
I see great value in minimalism, and I aspire to become a true minimalist.

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.
