I was heavily into minimalism back in 2010 when it started to make traction. It's a good start to thinking about your overall relationship with things and people/time, but it can very easily become a religion of its own. It won't make you happy for long. It's quite strange how entire YouTube channels make money off the concept too. Looks more like an exercise in narcissism these days than a philosophy of life.

Minimalism changed my life. Before I decided to be minimalist, I had IV and drips all around me! The doctors were like "it keeps you alive" and all of that crap, but it was making me sad. It was cluttered, and took up like 1 foot around me! That's when I decided to go minimalist. I took off all that extra weight and suddenly my life changed! Because it stopped! now I am eternally stuck in a grave waiting to be reincarnated. Rumor has it I will be an ant, because apparently I have the mental capacity if one.. idk. But don't worry drew, I will make sure to eat all my fellow colony members to keep it minimal! :D

I had a shopping problem a while back. It wasn't impacting my finances but I didn't have a healthy relationship with consumerism. I was at a really difficult time in my life and getting a package in the mail every week was about all I could look forward to. I was constantly scrolling through Wish and Amazon trying to find the best deal for the same item, none of which I really needed (or even necessarily wanted). I still find myself drowning my dissatisfaction with my life in impulse purchases, although nowadays it's usually snacks. I know because of my dad that I'm probably more predisposed to impulsive and addictive behaviors. It's a weird line to walk because naturally, we do need to buy things, (especially hobbyists like myself who need supplies for their crafts), but it's hard to know when that purchase is actually justified. I find myself driving home from work and wanting to stop by a store, any store, so I can just fill that little divet that place leaves in me. I used to be really interested in minimalism, and although I don't think I could ever practically go full minimalist, I think it's something worth looking into again. I'm really glad you brought this topic back into my brain and gave me a new Youtuber to check out so I can research it more.

Whats even funnier is that they sell minimalism like a religion that if you have lesser stuff you became much happier and having more stuff = less happiness. Minimalism is a lifestyle not a spiritual belief

Don't ask me why because I don't know. You're just really funny, and I appreciate it. I'm proud to be a little stinker.

Honestly, minimalism has been a cult since its peak with art (at least). People would only claim that art is when there's nothing but a line smack dab in the middle of a canvas... thanks Barnett Newman. There was even rules to how one has to be minimalist and how to paint at one point. It was very rigid and that was back in the 50s/60s? I can't remember lol. I took a class on it not too long ago so...

Ok I'm not trying to brag or look upity here but is anyone else not concerned over material goods like at all? I mean I definitely don't want to be stressed over necessities but if that's covered I don't want anything else other than maybe 2 sugary drinks (like boba tea) a month. Like I don't want clothes or decor or furniture or to eat out or anything rlly. And if something starts to break, like my computer or phone or shoes, I wait till they're completely 100% unusable. (Again, not bragging, this legit doesn't matter and I can't imagine why someone would care if others cared about materials, like that doesn't make sense to me. Just wondering if others have the same relationship w material items too).

I myself am a minimalist, and I just want to let you all know that these two guys are right in the sense that we have a consumerism problem, and minimalism does help a little just like vegans does its part to help animals. But their cult-like approach is off putting. Research minimalism outside of these guys, and if you dig it then cool, if not then oh well. I use minimalism as a way to help ME, and it's definitely not for everyone. I never liked owning a lot of things, so it was a natural step for me to give up what I felt was junk. But that's what I was comfortable with. I also think minimalism is a broad spectrum. There's people who don't use furniture. There's others who have plenty of furniture but it is all used and serves a purpose. I have little to no things in my apartment, but I have wall shelves with pictures of my girlfriend and pets because minimalism to me isn't the elimination of things, but giving space to the things you value most. First and foremost the "minimalist" journey is for the benefit of you. If you want to make a change go for it, but if you want 5 closets stuffed with clothes and 8 throw blankets on your 3 couches then go for it. :)
