“minimalist moment” – a moment in time when my journey to become minimalist impacted an unexpected decision.

this weekend while driving through my neighborhood, i noticed a large number of cars parked outside a neighbor’s home. as i drew closer, i counted 12-15 people in their driveway and the “garage sale” sign posted by the street. my initial inclination was to think, “wow, that’s a lot of people at that garage sale. it must be a good one. i should at least stop and check it out.”

at that point, my mind raced back to our decision to become minimalist. i asked myself a different question, “is there anything that i really need to add to my life?” after thinking of none, i drove past the garage sale without a second thought.

don’t get me wrong, i’m not against buying used and cheaper. but i am against buying used and cheaper just because it is used and cheaper.
