Husband and wife, Dave and Ashley wanted to live an intentional life and felt the pressure of materialism. After being inspired by The Minimalists (Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicrodemus), they decided they would rather be a part of the Minimalist movement than of consumerism, commercialism and materialism which Dave refers to as the Bad-isms.
Now, they seek only what matters most to them through minimalist living. It’s their mission to encourage others to choose a life that’s intentional for you and your family.
My favorite post: Are Minimalists Just Spoiled Brats? https://minimalismandyourmoney.com/2019/04/18/are-minimalists-just-spoiled-brats/
I’m definitely a minimalist wanna-be. I use some systems that work well to keep our stuff down to a minimum but need to work on the schedule. Love all these resources. Thanks for sharing! Will pin for later as well <3
Same here! I rely on a schedule to keep on top of it and it helps. Glad you enjoyed the post!
In my dreams I’m a minimalist! I love the idea and concept but it’s so hard to schedule everything right to keep it that way!
It’s all about the level of minimalism that works best for you. It takes persistence to maintain any organized or tidy space, but anyone can do it! I hope you give it a try.
