I wrote another book. It’s called The Minimalist Home, and it’s my step-by-step guide to decluttering each and every room of your home. Why, you might ask, did I write this book?

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 […] ...

Too often, we live our lives rejoicing only in the destination. We mark major accomplishments as the milestones that define our lives: a graduation, a new job, a wedding, a move, or overcoming a tragedy.

There is an oft-repeated parable that goes like this: An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life: “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. ”It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.

Note: This is a guest post from Karl Staib, author of Bring Gratitude. Recently, while standing in line at the bakery, I pulled out my phone and opened my Amazon app. It was a bad habit with no benefit other than to pacify myself while I waited. I remember the moment well. It had been a […] ...

Ten years ago, I was introduced to a word and a lifestyle that changed my life forever. I was introduced to minimalism and the reality that by owning less, I could live more.

Recently, I heard the story of Julie Andrews losing her singing voice after a botched throat surgery. For those of you not familiar, Julie Andrews grew up very poor in London. But she gained great renown in Great Britain and throughout the world because of her singing and stage performances. At age 13, Julie became […] ...

Minimalism is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from it. It requires a conscious decision because it is a countercultural lifestyle that stands against the culture of overconsumption that surrounds us. The world we live in is not friendly to the pursuit of minimalism. […] ...

There is a quote from Seth Godin I love to post in the Becoming Minimalist Facebook group. It goes like this: Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from. The quote is appreciated by most people who see it. But there are […] ...
