About a year ago we started to adopt the ways of a minimalist. Being minimalist to me, is just a label for not living in excess. Its about keeping what you use and love and getting rid of the rest. Its also about not buying what you don’t need or buying way too much of what you want. I like to compare it to food, if you ate one piece of cake once in a while you would enjoy it. If you ate a piece of cake everyday you might enjoy it but you would probably gain weight and get unhappy. If you ate several pieces of cake everyday you would probably get sick.
This is how I feel about stuff.
I decided to come up with 20 questions about being minimalist (Minimalist Homemaker Tag), that I am answering on my YouTube channel. Here are the questions below in case you would like to do this tag video or answer these questions on your blog. Obviously feel free to change the questions so they can apply to you.
