I get some crazy ideas in my head but one thing that has really stuck with me is extreme minimalism. Now this is a really crazy notion for me because I have a spouse that is NOT a minimalist. However, after watching me Becoming a Minimalist he now appreciates the general idea and has made some progress himself. He likes the idea that it saves money. I also have this crazy notion that at some point he will get on board with me. That’s another post altogether.
Extreme Minimalism gets my creative juices flowing and it challenges me to see just how much I can do without. I don’t know if I’ll ever get down to “Backpack Nomad Minimalist” status but you never know. For the present moment here’s the goal:
