Three minimalism blogs that I enjoy

I became interested in minimalism a few years ago. That is also when I first started reading blogs. All I will say on minimalism for now, is that I truly feel happier than life without it.

If you are interested too, here are three blogs I recommend. There are other blogs I read as well, but these are my favourites.

Number 1 – Slow Your Home

Brooke from Slow Your Home is an Aussie stay at home mum and sometimes I wanted to be her. This was the first blog I started reading and still my all time favourite. At first I checked her blog everyday and was upset if there was not a new post to read. Now she has turned her blog into a podcast. Honestly I have not found the time to listen to it since Bub, but I used to listen to it in the car on the way to work. I would arrive at work feeling calm, after an hour of driving through traffic.

Number 2 – Becoming Minimalist

If minimalism was an independent country, Joshua Becker would be the president. He is a big player in the minimalism community and you can’t really avoid him. That is ok because he is a really good writer.

Number 3 – Frugal and Thriving

Melissa is another Aussie stay at home mum who has blogged for years. Great tips on living simply and saving money.

Enjoy reading, if that is what you want.

  1. Thanks for the suggestions. I really like the Joshua Becker blog. I actually stopped buying clothes for a year last year because I realised that I just had too much in my wardrobe and the sheer number of items were causing anxiety and stress. Once I made that promise to myself, I felt released from so much pressure to be in line with the latest trends and lost a significant amount of interest in being a consumer. While I have started buying some clothes again (they do wear out) my choices are now more conscious and I have retained a general lack of interest in shopping. While I didn’t practice the art of thanking my belongings, I did find the Marie Kondo book really helpful in decluttering (which was also a big part of my de-stressing process). I’m glad someone else feels strongly about the minimalist movement as well!

  2. Just found your blog! I’ve just realised I am more-or-less a minimalist (well, I have been for about the last four years but the transition was so slow and gradual that it only hit me recently!). I had a baby 18 months ago and since then I have been embracing minimalism even more – it keeps me sane while the being a mum makes me go crazy so it all sorts of balances itself out. Would love more recommendations about minimalist blogs and your approach to it.

    1. Hi Moira, thanks for reading my blog. I just starting following yours!
      My approach to minimalism is not to put too much pressure on myself. I am not a full on minimalist. I haven’t adopted all of the ideas yet (or ever, I don’t know). I have just applied what is easy to fit in to my lifestyle so mainly less consumerism and less waste.
      The first thing I read that got me hooked was Everything That Remains by Joshua Fields Millburn. Then I moved onto to Simplify by Joshua Becker. I enjoy the Be More with Less blog and Courtney Carvers book Living in the Land of Enough. I obviously like Miss Minimalist and have read her book The Joy of Less.
      I recently joined a facebook group called minimalism + motherhood. It is good but it is massive and I had to unfollow it because the number of posts were overwhelming. I am a part of a very new small facebook group called Mindful Mother Blogs.
      I look forward to reading your blog.

      1. Our approach sounds quite similar then – more of a pick and choose what works than full on. Thanks for all the book and facebook group recommendations, I will definitely check them out!
