For the last eight years, I have been compiling and publishing curated articles that inspire simplicity in life. 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.
What I’ve Been Learning About Tidying and Minimalism | Money @ 30 by Kyle Burbank. With only a handful of projects completed so far, I already feel better as a result of our tidying and getting rid of items we no longer need. Plus, as expected, this process has also helped us to reconsider new purchases as it becomes apparent that they wouldn’t benefit us as much as we may have thought.

Thank you so much for including my post — and inspiring it! Incidentally, we’ve taken on a couple more projects since. In fact, last night, my wife and I each cut the number of t-shirts in our drawers in half. Granted, we are going to use some of those to make a quilt… but still a win. Onward and downward! ;)

I like the article by Felicia Renee. If you have a re-purpose store in your town/city, they may take these items as well.
Odd/tarnished jewelry or jewelry that is missing its mate.
Old magazines can also go to the Library.
Old clean kitchen/bathroom washcloths and towels to a shelter.
Sample size toiletries to an organization that helps battered women.
If any of you live in Northern California there are two repurpose/reuse stores.
East Bay Depot in Oakland Ca
Recreate in Roseville Ca
They also offer discounts to teachers and keep a lot of things out of the landfills.
Hi Joshua I have a book recommendation for you:
Possessed: Why We Want More Than We Need
By Bruce Hood (psychologist)
It is a very interesting and educated take on possession, ownership and consumerism (and more).
I think you would get a lot out of it like I did.
I love the saying:
It’s not what’s under the tree… but who’s around it that matters.
I bought kindle version of your book. Could you please forward the coupon so I can take course?
