Minimalism is not about perfection and there are no hard set rules to follow.
There are no set number of items of clothing you should own.
If you own over 50, 100 or 200 items of clothes this does not mean you are not a ‘real minimalist’. What’s a REAL minimalist anyway? Are they handing out Doctorates or certificates somewhere?
Minimalism is a journey without a final destination. It is a way of living your life differently – with intention, with only what you need or what brings you true joy. Only you will know what you need to live a content life and not one of excess.
If you are currently going through a de-clutter take your time! Don’t just throw everything out in a mad attempt to clear as much space as possible. Start slow and intentionally. You get to decide what living more minimally means to you.
If the minimalist lifestyle appeals to you, do it your way.
