For the last eight years, I have been compiling and publishing curated articles that inspire simplicity. At first, it was an exercise in communicating to Becoming Minimalist readers the most popular articles I sent out on Twitter.
But over the years, it has become more than that. It has become a place where people (every other week) come for a dose of inspiration. And it has become a place to promote and encourage writers around the world who are publishing content about minimalism, simplicity, and intentional living.
I think you will enjoy this collection of articles hand-selected for you this weekend. Grab some coffee, tea, or lemonade and be inspired to live a simpler life today.

The Cancel Amazon Prime article is terrifying and very well written. I have used Prime because I got a “free” trial subscription but other than watching the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, I really don’t use it. I still go to CVS for household goods, I still buy books from small brick and mortar shops and borrow from libraries. I still like to buy from local shops and after reading this article I’m canceling my trial immediately.
