Minimalism doesn’t have to mean living with nothing but the clothes on your back. Most minimalist apply the principles to the areas of their lives where it makes sense for them. For some this simply means buying less stuff, for others it could mean a massive decluttering. You can be a minimalist in a house, apartment, or hotel room.
Claire at Want Less shares a great post on Keeping things in perspective: why my minimalism has limits. She tells us that minimalism is a tool to get something we want or need. Minimalism isn’t the goal, but rather a means to reach our goals.
In Claire’s case she uses minimalism at a tool to be happier, to see and do interesting things, and to spend more time with those I care about. What are goals do you have that minimalism can help you achieve?
