Things We Still Buy as Minimalists:

A lot of people think minimalists don’t buy anything except needs like food & shampoo, but that is not true. We have hobbies and unnecessary things we like to buy too.

How to Declutter SUSTAINABLY:

I follow many people (on social media & YouTube, not real life, that would be creepy.) who create Minimalism content, which I love.
