I hope that you will join me on my journey into the minimalist lifestyle. I have spent my whole life not wanting to have a lot of physical items, but like everyone things have just seemed to have accumulated over the years. When I met my wife it was a big shock combining two households, myself with items and my wife with more things than anyone could ever use. In the beginning there was probably 400,000 items, in the past 4 years we've been able to cut that in half. Now we are making a conscientious move towards living with the things we really do need in life.
Like a lot of other people I got a renewed passion for downsizing and getting back to what's important "My Life" when I watched the Minimalists documentary. We have no intentions of giving up all of our possessions, we just want to lead a life that is not so cluttered with things that we will never use or do not bring any joy to our life.
I feel there are so many levels to minimalism, from people like me who just want to lead a simpler life to the hard core minimalists. There is no right or wrong in minimalism, everyone has their own concept, I think that we are all just trying to live a happier more fulfilled life and minimalism is a great place to begin.
I started my Real Minimalism and Minimalism: There are so many level page to see what kind of response that I would get from people around the world. I must say it has been phenomenal. I have been able to talk to so many great people and learn so much. I only plan to post once or twice a week, with topics ranging from where to start, what has worked for other people that I have met and other topics like volunteerism and travel.
We already have plans to do a couple of road trips this year, one to the tiny house jamboree in Colorado Springs and a trip down the east coast of the United States to visit some of our new found minimalist friends.
Join us for our journeys into minimalism, health and diet as well as our travel series.
