I don’t think it’s news to anyone that I’m a huge fan of minimalism. Minimalism has enhanced my life so much that I want to share it with anyone who will listen. It has helped me find the answers to some of life’s more important questions like: Will my life be complete without this bundt pan? and How long will it take me to actually use up 82 hair ties?
All kidding aside, there are so many wonderful ways minimalism can enhance your life. Although it is often associated with decluttering, once you do embrace the lifestyle, its message of simplicity starts to permeate so many different aspects of your life. Here are five reasons to become a minimalist.
Become a Minimalist To Save Money
I’ve written at length before about how minimalism and frugality go hand in hand, and that’s because both lifestyles help you save money. With minimalism, paring down actually helps you save money today as well as in the future because you reduce your future need for things.
Along with reducing maintenance and storage costs by getting rid of things that no longer give you value, after you’ve pared down and feel the benefits of owning less, it encourages you to think harder the next time you’re tempted to buy something.
