The Real Truth About Living a Minimalist Lifestyle

The popularity of minimalism has grown a lot in the past years. Long before the emergence of flat design, minimalism has been playing a huge role in many people's lives. This includes the designs of many artists: sculptors, theater directors, interior designers, graphic designers, and, of course, web designers.

A minimalist is someone who strives to remove much of the clutter from their lives and focus on life outside of physical possessions. The ultimate goal is to shed those things that don't matter in order to more fully pursue the things that DO matter. This can certainly manifest itself in many different ways, and every minimalist has their own story. Some take it way further than others.

so judgemental

What would have made Minimalism better?

I'm so into minimalism that it kind of hurts sometimes. I just can't get enough. Then I started listening to this book...OMG. I clicked it off. I do not share the Author's beliefs, which strike me as limiting rather than expanding.

Keep your money

The author took 2 hours to say what she could have said in a short magazine article. In short, don't be a haughty minimalist. Keep what makes you happy. Let the rest go.
