  1. Such a good article, it was informative whilst still giving encouragement instead of making the consumer feel guilty for struggling with minimalist shopping. Loved it!

  2. Such a good article! I am learning, a little each day, how to de-clutter, and to buy with conscience. I’m so happy that I removed a way too big desk from my bedroom and am using one much smaller. The room looks bigger, and I feel lighter, believe it or not.
    Keep these articles coming!
    Thank you,

  3. Thanks for the well written article. Having traveled around the sun many times, I am comfortable with minimalism in some areas. For example, I have one serated paring knife that is used to cut vegetables like, fruit, bread, basically everything. It was not expensive and does the job.

    Now that I’m living and working in a country far from family and with a different language where most clothes are fast fashion or boutique, I made a purchase of well made basics (tops, sweaters and dresses) that will machine wash easily and take me from workouts, to work and out to fancy places (should someone successfully pull me out of my aspiring hermit weekends!) Completely not minimalist, yet will free me up from clothes shopping for the next two or more years.

    I believe everyone has to discover what will work for them.

    1. Yup, I couldn’t agree more, Rhea. We’ve all got to find a threshold that feels right. Thank you, as always, for sharing.
