It’s been a fun week here at Becoming Minimalist. We surpassed 100,000 email subscribers and held a little prize bundle giveaway to celebrate.
On the blog post celebrating the achievement, 2,000 readers left comments explaining how they first found the website. They were so fun to read—people from all over the world, from all different walks of life, sharing unique stories of first being drawn to Becoming Minimalist.
It was a healthy reminder that the movement to own less continues to grow, and in significant ways. Thank you for being part of it.
I want to encourage and inspire you this weekend to find more life by owning less. Here are some inspirational articles and blog posts I want to pass along. Grab some coffee and a quiet moment this weekend… you’ll be glad you did.
