Religious items

Final Thoughts:

It may seem daunting, looking at this list of items and then at all of the items you have in your house, but it can be done. Take time to look at each section and relate it to your daily life. Do you really need all of these items cluttering your home space? This process takes time, of course, but it is time worthwhile. Living a minimalist lifestyle, or as minimalist as you are able to handle, will make your life feel less cluttered overall. Understand that this is just a list to use as a reference and that it is not gospel. Focus on yourself and how best you can live your life.
