Minimalism can help you save money

Instead of trying to find ways to make more money, minimalists contemplate the opposite: They live with less.

Minimalists find that after going through simplifying their lives and their interiors, they feel more at peace and in charge of their surroundings.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Getting started on the road to minimalism can be the hardest. Once you realise how much you own, it can be overwhelming and fill you with guilt about the money wasted.

After decluttering, you may encounter another emotional factor: When you live with just the things you really love, breaking something will feel way more dramatic.

There is no single way to lead a minimalist life

Minimalism is often seen as an all-white room containing few furniture pieces. There are no colors or patterns or decorative accents that don't serve some function. However, this is not true.

Minimalism can look very different from one person to the next. Pictures of well-organised shelves and neutral-pallet interiors can only convey so much.

The philosophy may start at home, but being intentional can expand in other areas of your life, like your relationships, thoughts, and general attitude. You may find yourself constantly in a state of gratitude, knowing that you have everything you need.

When you make sure that everything in your life is there intentionally, you can better focus an manage your responsibilities.

Minimalism

It's the idea that by owning less, we free up the time, energy, and money to get the most out of life. The more intentional we are about what we keep, the freer we are to seek fulfillment.

Minimalism encourages us to invest in things we love, instead of accumulating things we like. When you have fewer options, you force yourself into a positive mindset.

Digital minimalism is a "philosophy of technology use in which you focus your online time on a small number of carefully selected and optimised activities that strongly support things you value, and then happily miss out on everything else."  - Cal Newport

Use technology to "support" your personal goals, rather than letting it "use" you.
