Re: Why are you a minimalist?
Not quite there yet, but I am trying really hard to stay on the road to get there.
For me, I don't want to spend time taking care of THINGS. I want to spend time with people that are important to me, and doing things I love. And while maintenance is inevitable, I want to spend as little time doing that as I can get away with. Going minimal can do all these things for me.
I also come from a family history of hoarding or hoarding tendencies. I want to break the cycle, so it is never an issue for my kids. And I want them to remember me spending time with THEM, not dealing with all our STUFF.
