    I identified with the mindful aspect. I don’t want to buy more junk and then throw it away. I feel better with less and it adds value to my life because I don’t spend so much time cleaning things. On our summer vacation it really hit me how much junk people have because we were in so many houses. Only 2 houses had about the same amount of stuff as ours. I also love Kondos book and others on decluttering.

    ... Wait, which one was "I just can't be bothered with caretaking much stuff?" That's me.

    I definitely have the traits of the thrifty minimalist but like chicken lady the result is a bit of a hoarding mindset. Why throw out something that may be useful at some point and would then need to be replaced? So for me the result is I don't buy a lot and I get great joy when that big box full of a spaghetti of computer cables has just the cable I need years after the last time it was used.
