We buy what we don’t need and after suffer from overwhelming and anxiety. We fall in trap of advertising campaigns that promise us happiness after owning more. But is it true? I don’t think so
I like the concept of minimalism. But some people take it to extreme extent that is deprivation from needed belongings. While growing I’ve thought that it’s doesn’t matter in which shoes you walk in Paris as long as you see the world. And I used to believe in it. What’s wrong with this position? Uncomfortable shoes could destroy your health and can make even Eiffel tower visit as unpleasant experience. It’s really matter what you own and quality of items.
I try to explain that owning stuff it’s great, but owning trashy items it’s not fun. Who need fast fashion low quality items? Definitely not you. Keep that for teenagers who want to look trendy. Dress up classy, buy second-hand clothing, own high quality multipurpose items (own induction stove instead of cattle, toaster, grill, multicooker, etc), delete unnecessary information, delete unnecessary photos, keep your memories safely backed up in a few clouds, reject plastic when it’s possible, create memories.
Life is beautiful. Spend money on what’s going to create for you beautiful memories.
