how to be minimalist in one step


There are many guides to minimalism out there; I’ve even written one myself. These guides are full of tips to help you declutter and live with less.

Truthfully, you only have to do a single thing to be a minimalist.

  1. Eliminate everything from your life that’s not useful or beautiful.

That’s it. That’s all you need to do to be a minimalist.

Thank you so much for your help during my current challenge. You are awesome!

      Dear Michele,

      In your case, then, a Kindle would be considered useful. Kinda like my microwave, which we use every day. Others may not agree but who cares? We have only to please ourselves 😉

    Love the William Morris quote! (Or, more accurately, paraphrase.)

    Sometimes I try to take it a step further: When I need to get something that’s useful, I try to find something that’s also beautiful. (Or at least not ugly.)

    Right now, I’m looking for a new broom. (On our old broom, the bristles have worn down to practically nothing.)

    Ideally, my new broom will have natural bristles, a natural wooden handle, and blue stitching to hold the bristles in place. No plastic. Then I will leave it propped up against the wall on the back porch, and I will appreciate its simple beauty every time I come and go. 🙂
