I recently wrote a post titled Why I’m not a Minimalist, and my dear sister commented on my FB page explaining that Minimalism isn’t just about getting rid of stuff, it’s about simplifying life so we have more time for loved ones, she also brought to my attention that there is at least one very well known family who practices and preaches minimalism: Leo Babauta‘s … Continue reading Am I a Minimalist After All?
