    Ok I'm not trying to brag or look upity here but is anyone else not concerned over material goods like at all? I mean I definitely don't want to be stressed over necessities but if that's covered I don't want anything else other than maybe 2 sugary drinks (like boba tea) a month. Like I don't want clothes or decor or furniture or to eat out or anything rlly. And if something starts to break, like my computer or phone or shoes, I wait till they're completely 100% unusable. (Again, not bragging, this legit doesn't matter and I can't imagine why someone would care if others cared about materials, like that doesn't make sense to me. Just wondering if others have the same relationship w material items too).

    I myself am a minimalist, and I just want to let you all know that these two guys are right in the sense that we have a consumerism problem, and minimalism does help a little just like vegans does its part to help animals. But their cult-like approach is off putting.
    Research minimalism outside of these guys, and if you dig it then cool, if not then oh well.
    I use minimalism as a way to help ME, and it's definitely not for everyone. I never liked owning a lot of things, so it was a natural step for me to give up what I felt was junk. But that's what I was comfortable with.
    I also think minimalism is a broad spectrum. There's people who don't use furniture. There's others who have plenty of furniture but it is all used and serves a purpose.
    I have little to no things in my apartment, but I have wall shelves with pictures of my girlfriend and pets because minimalism to me isn't the elimination of things, but giving space to the things you value most. First and foremost the "minimalist" journey is for the benefit of you. If you want to make a change go for it, but if you want 5 closets stuffed with clothes and 8 throw blankets on your 3 couches then go for it. :)

    Basically, two rich guys, who chose to be minimalists, tell people, that you feel happy with less stuff. Tell that someone, who is really poor. Ah, and by the way, rich people are more happy overall, there are studies proving that.

    "Memories are in our heads not the objects" this is true, but you've got to remember that the objects can remind you about the memories if you forget. Imagine that you're 70 and you still have your pokemon cards, but you havent thought about pokemon for 50 years. Imagine how amazing it would be to be reminded of that thing by finding that object when you clean up. I agree that unnecessary stuff is bad, but sometimes stuff can be very good to keep.

    You should make a video about Dave Ramsey, the guy in this documentary who says "I want it, I want it now". Dude's the platonic ideal of a guy who used to be poor, got rich, completely forgot what it was like to be poor, and now makes a living telling poor people how to get rich.
    Some of his advice includes:
    - Don't do anything that would get you a credit score (don't get a house until you can buy one in cash, same for a car, don't get a credit card, etc)
    - Before anything else, get $1500 and lock it away for emergencies (not actually a terrible idea but he seems genuinely unable to understand that many people don't have hundreds of dollars just laying around)

    The worst thing is that it's not even true, at least not for everyone. I have a lot of "stuff", a lot of things that make me happy because they are nice to use or even to look at - some both. Also, a lot of things can help you bring back beautiful memories - so yeah, they make you happy. I really appreciate the things I have.
    Another thing: this whole concept makes me feel bad in a way for people who have no choice - people who have nothing like homeless people, refugees, all kinds of poor people around the world.

    Minimalism for me is a good way to keep my messy behaviour in check, it stops me from becoming messy, having poor hygiene and dropping self care. That's just a tool I use to keep my life somewhat stress free, I also do like owning the same shirts lol it makes getting dressed easy (as a man no one cares what I wear, as long as it's clean and I don't smell!)
