    A Day in the Life of a Minimalist

    Hey, I thought you might like this video, especially the first minute and a half. But the whole thing is very good, very thoughtfully done.

    Pretty neat video, and I think it showed a good example of a home that is minimalist while still having some warmth and charm.

    He didn't strike me as living as a minimalist so much living intentionally. By the standards he outlined in the video here, most of us on the forum are "minimalists".

    I was thinking the same thing as Steve. I'm certainly no minimalist, and have a few nice sized closets that are pretty full to prove it. But I do a number of things that this guy does. Like clothes. I have five casual work shirts (rugby and other long sleeve knit shirts) and just wear whichever one is on top of the stack along with a pair of jeans. And food. I plan stuff that's easy to cook and easy to provide leftovers for lunch.

    Ask a millennial to help you with that!

    His wife is not a minimalist. So that probably makes him appear "less" minimalist.

    He has two videos about dealing with the non-minimalist wife. "Living with a minimalist" and "Living with a non-Minimalist."

    The first is told from her perspective. The second is told through his.

    Hi Terry,

    I thought the millenial remark was rude. If you want to watch it, this might work better for you:
