    In short, this minimalist joke sums up my understanding of an obvious misapplication of minimalism.

    ”Two Irishmen walk past a bar.”
    Haha! Definitely misapplied--but if they did walk in, they'd walk in with nothing on them and they'd walk out with nothing on them, except a buzz--does a buzz count as a possession? If it does, they'd probably have fewer bills in their wallet, so does that count as a net minimalist gain?

    When it comes to limiting possessions, Peace Pilgrim has to be the winner. She had her tunic and sneakers, a comb and note paper, pen and stamp. I think it would be difficult to beat that.

    Which really becomes an issue in a household/relationship where one is striving for minimalism and the other is not. Compromise, yes. But it's really, really hard when one party sends out 3 items for each bought in and the other party brings in 3 item for each sent out.

    Do you all practice "zoning?"
