what does it mean to slim down the things we have?


minimalism is limiting the things that you have down to only what is essential. You can’t be a consumer and a minimalist unless with everything you take in you are giving somehing else away. 


Everything you buy you should have a purpose.  


This is doesn’t mean we can’t let go. This doesn’t mean we use everything until it’s empty.  


This is doesn’t mean we always know how to live simply.  


This is doesn’t mean we are amazing decorators, or that we are neat freaks.  


This doenst mean we are better than anyone else
