As I have been weaving my way down this crazy path toward simplicity, I have been on the search for blogs that highlight the minimalist lifestyle. I was able to find quite a few.
First, I found a lot of blogs authored by people who strive to have only 100 possessions. While I think this is great, I knew I didn’t fit in this club. As i have written before, we use 126 socks in a week. I definitely think that is in violation of their manifesto.
So I moved on and discovered quiet a few blogs written by single men or women who loved to travel and traveled with all of their possessions secured onto their backs.
I found this fascinating but not really a good fit for my mission at this point.
Finally, I came upon a few blogs that I could really dig into and read for a while.
LovingSimpleLiving is a blog that I really enjoy. Lorilee breaks down the struggles and benefits of the simple lifestyle her family has adopted. Her blog is colorful and real.
BecomingMinimalist is a blog that i came upon from Facebook. The author frequently posts quotations set into lovely pictures that get shared by the thousands. I love to use this blog as a perfect place to look up any FAQ’s that I might have. There is a TON of information here.
ZenHabits– Leo Babauta is the author of this blog and is the dad to 6 kids. I had to read this one. His blog is very sparse but his content is real. You should definitely spend sometime over in his neck of the woods.
MinimalistMom-I really love this blog. Rachel the author spells it all out in her family’s journey of living with less. She is very clear that minimalism is what you want it to be, not someone else’s vision.
I have been really hard tried to find a blog that talks about Living Minimalism with a large family, which is why I have started blogging about this subject.
Please let me know if you have any questions and please check out one of the blogs above if you are curious about the Minimalist lifestyle. I think you will be surprised to see no two minimalists are alike.
