Minimalism is liberating, freeing, and it seems like everyone is on a quest to live as simply as possible in one area of their lives these days. Collecting things we desire and love can bring a lot of happiness. When we get to pass these things down to our grandkids, they become heirlooms. But, sooner or later, we have to admit when we are just hoarding things. If you have kids, you’re probably hoarding toys whether you like it or not. If you don’t have kids, what’s your vice that you know you have to stop?
With the housing market being ridiculous to penetrate and space being of the utmost commodity, we are all looking for ways to minimize what we don’t need to maximize space (and breathing room).
