52 Ways to Simplify: A 2021 Series

The Distil Union design philosophy of "less is more" stems from the idea that creating space for the activities and people you love — rather than for more things — can lead to a more fulfilled life.

But why do we urge you to #SimplifySmileRepeat? Our minimalism rejects fulfillment from objects and embraces the simplicity made by decluttering, organizing and editing in order to create opportunities for the truly important things.

However, to truly live this way takes discipline and constant reminders. In a world where we're inundated by ads tempting us with the latest and greatest, it's difficult to realize when you have enough. We realize some of this may seem counterintuitive coming from a retail business. Because, yes, we make objects — but our goal is to design those objects to fit seamlessly into your life, so you don’t have to spend any more of your precious time fussing, finding, tidying, and organizing. "Outer order contributes to inner calm." Gretchen Rubin

So if you feel like you've got too much stuff in your space, we’ve got some great tips to battle unnecessary noise and visual clutter. Follow along with our "52 Ways to Simplify" series as we share our best hacks for every area of your life.
