Watching YouTube videos has been an interest of mine for a while now. I’ve stumbled upon minimalist videos; less stuff. It’s pretty tough. I’m donating a bunch of clothes I don’t see myself wearing or have kept for years. Movies, TV Shows, and music I’m buying digitally now on Amazon Prime. I plan on getting a Kindle (again) for reading since holding a tablet can get pretty heavy to hold. Looking to get a Roku streaming device as well. I just want to have less stuff for when and if I move out and an open, airy feel. What are your guy’s thoughts about minimalism?

If I were single I would probably strive to be more minimalistic. Having your surroundings be at the bare minimum is a good way to usher in a less cluttered mindset. It's also very aesthetically appealing, but it's hard to give up a lot of our stuff.

I've started buying things that help me put out less waste into the environment. Tote bags to the grocery store, making my own coffee with a French press, that kind of thing.

As a cashier at a grocery store, I love it when people bring in their own bags; especially when we get really low when customers always ask for double or triple (which really pisses me off, but w/e). At my store, we have a weekly raffle for bringing their own bags. Each time they come in during that week with their own bags, they get a piece of paper with their name and phone number. On that following Sunday, a winner is picked and a new one begins. They’re also just easier to bag and they hold a lot more securely than plastic bags.

Yeah, being single, it’s an advantage for me (Well, not really since I still with my parents.) because if I were to move out I can set my own rules, make my own life style choices, etc.

I haven’t been able to give up all of the Manga I own yet, but I got rid of most of my other stuff I don’t plan on using in the near future, etc.

I've been living like this since high school. It's very freeing (and ridiculously easy to move) to only have practical items and a few choice decorations and a small box with sentimental stuff.

I do like having a bed, and an office chair i haven't found a portable alternative for, and I have a gigantic 8ft printer, so I need a truck for those, but other than that, everything I own can be packed up into my car, including my desk which is just a foldable table so I can literally bring my desk with me on long trips. When I get an apartment of my own I'd like to invest in some inflatable furniture and smaller fold-up side tables.

I plan on getting a Kindle


You can get a kindle 3 on ebay for 30$. Already done this twice. Imo they're the most comfortable to hold and they also have a keyboard for uber-convenience.

I've been lurking in some minamilism boards. They all stress that you don't have to completely give up every aspect of your life for their lifestyle. Especially not the things which bring you enjoyment. Several of them have extensive book collections. While others only have a handful of books that mean the world to them while the rest donate every book they read to a second hand shop, use a library card or a kindle.


it is a very attractive lifestyle and one I plan to follow in my professional life. But there's no way in he'll ill give up my books.

For books, I plan on keep my favorite series. The same goes for movies and Anime because Anime happens to be so expensive. Thanks Japan.

Like Xhin suggested, I plan on keeping things that have value in my life and the things I need. I already made a list.

I haven’t made a favorite’s list yet. Just the “Things that have most value”, and “things I need”, etc.

That’s the thing though. I’m not big on used products and I’d rather get the Kindle Paperwhite so that I can read at night. The only problem I had with Kindles is that the battery tends to dry out even when it’s not turned off.

Update! (July 30, 2018): I decided to get rid of most of my Manga. I’m only going to keep the ones that don’t have digital copies. I’ve pretty much read what I needed to read so I’m all set.

Where I’ll be getting my digital copies

    My friend is totally addicted to her kindle cas, you’ll love it, she reads all of the time and yiu’re an avid reader but tha: not to say for sure that you will become addicted to it. I think you have self control pretty well knowing when is is it ok to read and when you’ll need to stop. I’ve been trying to learn about plying Skyrim and minrctaft and fortnite on the switch because the controls are different because you don’t hold them together on the switch. Your birthday is son ITV do you have any plans altready scheduled for it or is it going to be just a casual day?

    Just a casual day. Might see if my friends from work want to hang out or something. Turning 30 is going to feel ooooooold.

    My closet is almost empty guys. I just have stuff that my grandma made me and a few boxes for my statues. My printer is in there as well as an empty bookcase. Gotta get that out. My room is a little messy but not as messy as it was before. V.v
