Minimalism and Frugality
Today I sent a guest post to Miss Minimalist about my journey to minimalism which was definitely an incremental process. The biggest motivating factors were often moves from place to place and the unwillingness to pack yet another box full of stuff that I would never use.
Through this journey I discovered that minimalism and frugality naturally go hand in hand. It is amazing how much money you can save when you don’t feel the need to buy anything. And it is wonderful how that one-two punch of minimalism and frugality opens the door to so many more possibilities in your life.
If you want to write instead of working at a mind numbing, soul sucking job then it’s easier to save money to build up a fund. And the money you save goes a lot further because your expenses are very low.
Some people pursue other dreams like being full time parents. Others want to work on environmental causes or travel the world.
Whatever your dreams, they are easier to achieve through minimalism and frugality. Luckily there are plenty of sources of inspiration and advice for that journey. Miss Minimalist is one of them. And of course you’ve already found me here at Frugally Food!
