Hey, everybody! Remember in this post when I said I was going to come out with a list of resources for minimalists? Well, here it is!
Today, I’m bringing you a collection of 7 different articles all about minimalism.
Definitions of Minimalism
The authors of this blog (Joshua Fields Milburn and Ryan Nicodemus) are probably two of the most influential minimalists out there. They have a documentary that’s currently on Netflix (as of January 2017) about minimalism, they have written several books about it, they regularly go on tour, and they, of course, run this blog. This post talks about what minimalism means to them and also gives some resources at the end.
Joshua Becker (author of the Becoming Minimalist blog) wrote this post talking about his take on minimalism. He’s also written a book on minimalism. I love his perspective on the phenomenon. In this post, he has a list of seven things minimalism means/represents to him.
I’ll admit that I haven’t read as much of this blog, but I’ll also tell you that’s about to change! This post is short and sweet (minimalistic, if you will) and explains what minimalism means to author Lorilee. She talks about six traits that she thinks define a minimalist.
Where to Start
This post, written by Courtney Carver, talks about seven things you can do to start your minimalist journey. There’s a really cool graphic in this post with the list on it, so you can just look at that if you don’t want to read the entire article (even though I would definitely recommend reading it).
This is another list post of resources written by Michael at the Minimalist Vegan. It kind of speaks for itself, so head on over and check it out! There are a lot of good articles listed there.
This is a wonderful master post of suggestions to start becoming more minimalist. This is good for people who are just starting out with minimalism or who have been minimalist for a long time. I’ll be trying out some things on this list, too!
Lindsay Nixon gives examples from her life of how to start with minimalism. She gives some of the classic suggestions (get rid of duplicates), but she also puts her own spin on those suggestions.
