Fill your life with stories to tell, not stuff to show. The simplicity/minimalism movement is a beautiful community. And I enjoy any opportunity to promote writing that encourages people to live more by owning less. So fix yourself a nice warm cup of coffee or tea. Find a quiet moment this weekend. And enjoy some […] ...

I was recently asked, “How does your view of passing on an inheritance factor in your minimizing?” I responded with a quote from Peter Strople I’ve never forgotten: Legacy is not leaving something for people. It’s leaving something in people. The inheritance we pass on to our children is more than the material possessions or the financial […] ...

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from Angel (and Marc) Chernoff of Marc & Angel Hack Life. Recently one of our course students, Monica—a recovering victim of a very recent and debilitating car accident—was smiling from ear to ear the minute our FaceTime coaching session began. “What has you in such good spirits today?” I […] ...

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post by Louis Chew of Constant Renewal. Not long ago, I tried assearing some of my possessions. It didn’t go well. As I went through some old books and notes from school, I wondered to myself if I’d ever use them again. Deep down, I knew there was no […] ...

It’s 7:43pm and you’re at mile 25 of your daily parenting marathon. The finish line is in sight. So far, you’ve hosted a play date, dragged Halloween costumes out for dress-up, played at the park, supervised finger painting, and judged a Lego competition (which you determined to be a tie—naturally). Dinner is done and the […] ...

There’s more to life than buying stuff. There are many wonderful people pursuing and promoting simplicity. Fortunately, some of them are gifted in communication and choose to encourage and inspire us with their words. I enjoy reading their unique perspective. I’m sure you will too.

Nearly 40% of millennials overspend to keep up with friends, according to a recent survey. Digging deeper into the numbers, 73% of those who went into debt to keep up with their friends typically keep it a secret. And two-thirds of respondents feel buyer’s remorse after spending more than they had planned to on a […] ...

Note: This is a guest post from Jay Harrington of Life and Whim. After a long, brutal winter, it feels great to be outside again in a t-shirt, even if the temperatures aren’t climbing much beyond fifty degrees here in northern Michigan. In our community, which was recently buried in snow, people are out in force, […] ...

Note: This is a guest post from Nataly Kogan, author of Happier Now. In the summer of 2017, I traveled to Tanzania to give workshops to the two hundred girls who study at SEGA (Secondary Education for Girls’ Advancement) Girls’ School. These girls come from extreme poverty, and many of them lost one or both […] ...

Minimalism is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from it.

The world we live in is not friendly to the pursuit of minimalism. […] ...
