An important facet of sustainability, minimalism encourages individuals to reduce their consumption and live a life with less stuff. Minimalism is the counterculture to consumerism, and it can take the form of people owning literally 10 items.
That being said, minimalism can mean different things to different people, and it’s the underlying theme of both homesteading and tiny living! So whether you are looking to own less stuff or have a bit more self-sufficiency, minimalism is something you should always keep in the back of your mind.
