I feel more comfortable and at ease not having a lot of 'stuff.' I like that feeling of not having stuffed shelves, closets, drawers, etc. For me minimalism is also about letting go of consumerism- not having more than you need, not being wasteful, not worrying about keeping up with other people for the sake of appearances, not being obsessed with accumulating more and more possessions. I think that's why I like the both Thrifty and Minimalism forums. For me they are connected. It is very easy for me to not hold on to stuff and to be organized. But changing my consumerist tendencies is a challenge.
