No Sidebar E-Mail Program Review

Good afternoon all!

I thought I’d provide a review of No Sidebar‘s 30-day e-mail course.

Overview: Every day you receive an e-mail with a mini-challenge, some of which build on others. These challenges cover areas from social media to decluttering to the mental side of minimalism and is more focused on minimalism as an entire lifestyle rather than focusing solely on decluttering. Also includes membership in the private Facebook community group.

Cost: $15 U.S., although if you follow them on Facebook on occasion they have a discount code that reduces it to $10.

Pros: 

  • Most days are “do-able” challenges that break things down into manageable pieces. There’s no “Today throw out all of your clothes.”
  • Least expensive of the minimalism/decluttering courses available.
  • Includes Facebook community group.
  • Covers unique topics.

Cons:

  • The challenges were so varied in topic that sometimes it was difficult to “see” a cohesive picture of what the course was aspiring to achieve.
  • No other content such as videos, interactive webinars ,or web portal.

Recommended: Yes

Final Thoughts:  Although there isn’t much interactive content, the challenges are refreshingly different than the usual decluttering challenges offered in minimalism courses and books, and the price point can’t be beat, even if you don’t catch them during a discount code.

Welcome!

Hello there! This is Pip, the Minimalist Hobbit. I live up in the Shire, otherwise known as Lake Placid, NY, and am on the journey towards minimalism – not just with my physical clutter but electronic, social, etc. I hope you’ll join me!

If you’re wondering what Minimalism is, although it means something different to everyone, I like The Minimalists’ definition the best: “Minimalism is a tool to rid yourself of life’s excess in favor of focusing on what’s important—so you can find happiness, fulfillment, and freedom.” – https://www.theminimalists.com/minimalism/.

I will start regular posting soon, but will leave you with some quick book recommendations to get you started: (Please note that these are affiliate links. Your patronage is appreciated.)

Looking forward to traveling this road with you.
