As regular readers will know, I have been reading (and thoroughly enjoying) minimalist blogs lately.
In the beginning, I think I started reading minimalist blogs out of curiousity.
Financially I was interested in being more careful about how I spent my money. I was seeking ways to become more frugal. I wanted to, at least in part, escape the crush of consumerism.
What I uncovered with minimalist blogs is so much more than simply being careful with money.
Now I am hooked.
The aspect that I have most embraced with minimalism blogs is the value of freedom. Freedom from debt. Freedom to pursue a career that you love. Freedom to be completely yourself.
Here are 5 minimalist blogs I am currently enjoying.
Courtney Carver is the author of Be More With Less. Read through Courtney’s about page to get a feel for her and her blog.
Courtney has a great series – How to Live in the Land of Enough.
For more from Courtney grab a copy of her eBook (affliate link) Simple Ways to Be More with Less
This site is run by Joshua Becker. I find this site particularly interesting, considering Joshua is part of a family of four. Throwing children into the mix, represents an even greater challenge for minimalists. Joshua however proves it can be done.
I also love Joshua’s down to earth writing style.
Looking for more of Joshua’s work. Read his eBooks (affliate link) Simplify for 7 Guiding Principles to Help Anyone Declutter Their Home and Life and (affliate link) Inside-Out Simplicity for Life-Changing Keys to Your Most Important Relationships.
This site has some fantastic minimalist images, not to mention many excellent posts.
I can definitely relate to the articles on living in a small space. My last rental, a one bedroom apartment was tiny. I am not sure of the exact measurements, but most people I know have larger lounge rooms, than the size of the whole unit.
When I finally bought a property, I went bigger with a 2 bedroom townhouse. By Australian standards, it would still be considered reasonably small, yet it is the perfect size for me. I love it!
Get better acquainted with Francine Jay, the writer of Miss Minimalist on her about page.

Jennifer writes about minimalism, intentional living and travel. She’s also a Brissie girl, like myself, so instantly a fan right there!
