Minimalism — what are your thoughts?

Minimalism is a philosophy about getting rid of excess stuff and living life based on experiences rather than worldly possessions. In simple terms, it is owning fewer possessions and living with the minimum amount of necessary items.

At its core, being a minimalist means intentionally promoting the things we most value and removing everything that distracts us from it. It offers freedom to disengage and keep only the essentials. As it also aims to remove the frivolous and keep the significant, to value the intentional endeavors that add value to life.

Lately youy may have seen many experts and supporters advocating for this lifestyle, ranging from simple actions like removing clutter from your wardrobe or workplace, to the extreme where “bohemians” choose to live without a home (just in a trailer parked on the beach for example) and with hardly any material posessions at all.

What do you think about this philosophy, and how far could you go with it?
