5 Tips on How to Simplify Life
When it comes to something like credit cards, I do a lot of initial research but then commit to it and stick with it. I use this same strategy for investing. I don’t continually research once I’ve made a decision. This saves so much brain space!
2. Food & Meals
As you likely know, I’m a big fan of having a meal plan and figuring out the food for the week upfront. That way I don’t have to continually revisit and start from scratch.
3. What I Drink
I’ve determined that what I usually want to drink at a restaurant is a white French wine. I don’t have to go through a complicated decision making process each time. This applies to other things like what I order for breakfast out, etc. Knowing your preferences simplifies things.
With our house renovations, we have a new closet. I’m trying to be very intentional about only keeping items I really love and having many things I can mix and match so I don’t have an overwhelming volume of clothes.
I try with both the kids’ schedules and my schedule, to keep things simple. I try to avoid having too many meetings and calls. Instead, we have regular calls at Prep Dish with the same order and process each time. This keeps things simple and efficient.
