I know a lot of people are here to declutter, get organized and keep their lives simpler. But I was wondering if there are any more extreme minimalists here? Living with the absolute minimum of stuff and nothing that is not essential. Please no flames from those who don't subscribe to this level of simple living- positive posters only
I recently went through a life changing experience, and now we are moving far away to an island- which I have wanted for a long time. I thought I had been moving towards minimalism the last few years, but now I am realizing I was fairly deluded . I just had it neatly organized and stored so it seemed like less stuff. I took selling to a whole new level and have decided this whole move will be the inspiration for a new simpler life. And I mean very minimalist. The more I get rid of the more I want to. And the more I realize that what I believed before to be essential to a convenient happy life was actually completely unnecessary.
We are learning to do without things that we really never needed to begin with. We will only be shipping the bare minimum of stuff. My lounge room is set up like a department store completely packed full of the stuff we are selling. I am no longer interested in buying anything as I see that it got us into this situation in the first place. Things no longer have meaning to me. I am holding my breath until we have it all gone and we can get there and just be together as a family. Which is what is really important to me. And always was, but managing all the junk was getting in the way of living a full life.
So is there anyone on here who lives this way as well? Maybe those living on an RV or a boat- the ones who didnt rent out storage for their stuff while they were away But sold it all and let go of the importance of 'stuff'. Or those who just decided to change their life one day? Or anyone who is moving towards this lifestyle now? Im talking hard core minimalists.....where are you all?
