Minimalism is a state of mind. It affects the way we live, dress and consume. As passionate minimalist I get a lot of questions on my lifestyle and how it affects my happiness. So today I try to share 3 big reasons why Minimalism makes me happy + some tipps on how to simplify your life:

THE JOY OF SIMPLICITY. I know exactly what’s in my closet, my drawers and my bookshelves. When I got the feeling that I own too much stuff (which happens all the time), I’m selling parts of my wardrobe/posessions at my Tictail Shop and donate some pieces. After closet cleanouts I always feel incredibly liberated and clear-headed. I have one strict rule, that I follow relentlessly: For one new thing another thing must go. That’s a great way to simplify your e.g. wardrobe and once you stick to this rule, it feels damn good!!

LESS IS MORE. My closet and my flat is an absolute no-fuss zone. If something isn’t really needed, it’s gotta go. Think about all the random stuff that’s just there without a purpose. Do we really need this? Answer: Nope. If you have less you can concentrate on the important things in life: family, love, friends and health.

NO REGRETS. Being a sartorial minimalist definitely changed my personal style for the better. While living the no-fuss ideology (=buying less) I’ve developed my taste in fashion and I know exactly what I like and what not. Nowadays I only buy stuff when I’m 100% sure it’ll fit my aestethic and quality demands. When I’m shopping I use a simple trick: Before I buy a new piece of clothing I try to come up with at least 3 different ways to wear it. That’s how you will never regret a purchase.

Der Post ist ja richtig toll und ich versuche mich gerade auch sehr mit diesem Thema zu beschäftigen und es umzusetzen. Demnächst steht bei mir auch ein großer Frühjahrsputz an und ich werde dann auch wieder ausmisten! Machst du auch mal einen Post speziell über den Minimalismus zum Thema Kleidung?

viele liebe Grüße

Ich wünschte ich hätte auch so eine Attitude, wenn es um Ordnung in der Wohnung geht. Bei mir sammelt sich viel zu viel an. Bei Schmuck trifft simplicity allerdings genau meinen Geschmack. Ich liebe zum Beispiel die Kreationen von Nomination. Die sind genau schlicht und doch experimentell genug, dass ich diese Teile liebe! Einen wirklich tollen Blog hast du hier, mach weiter so! :)
