This Holiday Season, Say YES TO LESS With Little Remedies

little remedies disclosure say yes to less

Saying YES TO LESS… this is a philosophy my family recently adopted and one that has been so incredibly beneficial to our family.

Since Darren and I got married nine years ago, we have moved a lot.  Counting that initial move in together, we’ve moved approximately nine times, living at six different addresses.  With each move, the moving truck gets a little bigger and a little more full.

When we moved to South Carolina a few years ago, we rented the largest self-moving truck available and all of our belongings didn’t fit inside.  It was awful.  When we found out we’d be moving back to Georgia earlier this year, I vowed not to let that happen again.

We decided to say YES TO LESS.

 

I just want to reiterate how truly liberating it is to say yes to a life with less stuff.  We actually use everything in our home.  It’s easy to find exactly what we’re looking for and every single item has a home.  No more digging through clutter for what we need, no more trying to find a creative spot to store things.

However, this isn’t the only area of our lives in which we’ve decided to say YES TO LESS.

I’ve done something similar with our groceries.  Before, I’d make a rough list of things we were out of, stock up on things I had coupons for, and look for any particularly good sales the grocery store had.  The result was a well-stocked pantry that didn’t have everything I needed to prepare dinner each night.  We made frequent trips to the store just to pick up that one item {which often turns into more} and things would expire because I had overbought.

I detest being wasteful, so I began to execute a new system.  Each week, I make a menu plan.  I make our grocery list based on what we need to prepare those meals, along with any staple items we’re out of.  I search for coupons based on my list, only using ones that line up with our needs for the week.

The result is phenomenal.  I through out far less, and I spend less at the store as well.  We have exactly what we need, which results in far less last minute trips to the store.  Additionally, my pantry isn’t overflowing with 20 boxes of mac-n-cheese that I bought simply because I had a coupon and they were on sale.

One additional area that we say YES TO LESS is with our medicine.  Raileigh has several really severe allergies that require daily medications.  There are also additional things we must give her if she has a bad attack.  I never knew how many different medicines were available for children– it’s astounding!

Many products seem to contain artificial ingredients that I have never heard of and could never begin to pronounce.  That is not what I want to be giving my family.  When Raileigh was born, I began paying more attention to products that are made with natural ingredients.

Little Remedies is one of those.

During cold and flu season, I make sure to keep Little Remedies in our medicine cabinet just in case the cold and flu decides to strike my little one.  I want to be prepared with a natural product that I can treat my daughter with.  We also stock up on tissues, her favorite brand of saline nose wipes, and the natural cleaning products I use in my home.  I don’t want to see those germs appear in the first place, but we need to have a good line of defense in case they do.

We also keep a few super soft, cuddly blankets right beside our favorite movies.  There’s nothing like some good cuddles to help chase away the sickness!

  1. I’m all for yes for less. When my daughter moved out and I moved into a 1 bdrm apt I got rid of so much stuff. For the last 1 1/2 years I’ve been winning lots of giveaways so I have to do some spring cleaning after Christmas. I love that little snippet of Raliegh and the strawberry cookie. I think I may have to try those.
