Minimalism is a hot topic right now,
. . . as people react to the hyper-consumerist culture,
. . . that’s been passively accepted for the past several decades,
. . . but has left us with suffocating levels of:
. . . . . . Stuff,
. . . . . . Debt, and
. . . . . . Stress.

'The Joy of Less.' minimalism book focus,
. . . is on the how-to of decluttering,
. . . the actual physical act of removing belongings from one’s home.

Sorry'; I'll never be a "minimalist" but I don't buy excessively either.

For instance. I was given  a small Vinca vine. Over the years in springtime I have transplanted wayward plants
to other areas, Now I have vines covering 90% of my yard. No moving. (Gas-emissions-no thanks) B)

Same with indoor plants. Cut & divide.
No need to "buy" more; but plants help keep the air house cleaner.
Too often people use their wallets instead of their brains.
Being poor teaches you to use your brain rather than your wallet.

And I understand that not everyone is into finding things by dumpsters (or even in them) but it's amazing
how many great things you can find if you're willing to look.

Consumerism is bullsh*t; get previously used.  You'll be happier for it. I know I am.
