The Minimalists

I can’t believe I never posted about The Minimalists on here before – I guess I just kept it to Facebook + IG. I just saw they’re coming out w/ a brand-new Netflix documentary, Less Is Now – available on 1.1.2021. ✨

In the meantime, their 2016 documentary, Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things, is still currently available to stream on Netflix.

I really don’t remember how I stumbled upon them in the first place, but I know I started reading their books back in 2014, although unfortunately (very much in the spirit of minimalism), I lent out most of their books, which haven’t been returned to me, so am currently only in possession of a few. 😅

I’m also in a Minimalist Facebook group + attended a meetup + discussion a few years back at an IL suburban library, which was a great opportunity to connect w/ some likeminded people. 🤓

I was lucky enough to meet them at the premiere of their first documentary in Chicago at the Portage Theater. (+ I’m still very proud of myself for being the first to stand up + ask a question during the Q&A portion of the event!)

They also have a podcast + YouTube channel! If you’re interested in beginning to live a minimalist lifestyle, check out the video introduction below or skip right ahead to playing the 30-day Minimalism Game! 😉

When I first started selling a lot of my possessions back in 2015/2016, I used eBay, but now I’m mainly only selling clothing items + like using the DePop app! I have a rule that I’m not allowed to buy something new unless I “get rid of” something old/something I don’t wear anymore, but to reduce waste + get some of the $ back, I try to sell my items to a new owner.

It’s very simple to list for sale + I choose to ship through DePop, so all I have to do is print a label that’s sent to me when an item is purchased, put the item in a box + place it in the mailbox for USPS to pick up. The payment comes in through PayPal, which is really easy + convenient. Items that don’t sell after some time are usually donated to The Salvation Army.
