With Spring Cleaning and decluttering at the forefront of my mind at this time of year, I’m in full-on declutter, live-with-less, zen mode. I’ve posted my fair share of information and thoughts on minimalism, but love to look for new inspiration as well. Minimalism to me is not the idea to rid yourself of all your possessions, but to only keep those that are functional (you need) or bring you joy. The items you surround yourself with should serve a purpose, not sit unloved or unused while life passes by. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite inspirations for minimalism, so be sure to check them out below.
I’ve always loved Anuschka’s style, and her thoughts on fashion. Her book, The Curated Closet, is a great read, and my favorite post of hers is her Closet Detox Sheet.
Love his sensible approach to minimalism, views on life, and the fact that he (and his wife) have kids and make it work. What I really love is following along via Facebook because I see lots of articles I wouldn’t have read by just browsing.
I’ve read both The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and Spark Joy, and all I can say is that they’re life changing. I know some naysayers, but I’m ignoring them. She even has an app now to help you along!
Aside from being a minimalist, Mark is a talented writer. I was first introduced to his writing via The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck, and to say that it was life-changing would be an understatement. He has one of the only newsletters I subscribe to and actually read.
I recently discovered No Sidebar, and it’s beautiful aesthetics aside, I love the
My friend Reichel (ha!) turned me on to Rachel when she announced she has PCOS like I do. I checked out her channel and have been following along ever since. I love her no-nonsense approach to it, though her style is a bit more edgy than mine.
Shira is another SF Bay Area local and I’m happy to have her in my circle. Her blog offers practical ideas for reducing clutter and organizing your home in a smart way.
Minimalism, Intentional Living
I started following this blog after watching a TEDx Talk about becoming “rich” by owning less. It was one of my first crossings with minimalism, but is still inspirational to this day. They recently released a documentary called minimalism as well.
The Private Life of a Girl
Simple Living, Minimal Style
I discovered Sophie’s blog via bloglovin’ and although our aesthetic is a little different, her views and tips on simple living are absolutely spot on.
I’ve been in love with Caroline’s site ever since I came across her capsule wardrobe posts. She recently hosted a travel week on her blog too, but I might be partial because she asked for my input (fangirling here!)
Leo’s writing is inspiring on it’s own, but I really enjoy how in-depth he goes, it makes it easier to understand the concepts he talks about.
