I liked your ‘counter arguments’, but I am confused as to why you think people often believe…

Hi John,

Thanks for reading. Great question and the point is (or at least my experience is), that people come up with this comment as areflex, without even considering minimalism and what it is. They just say it won’t be possible when I get kids.

A lot of people just consider it crazy / extreme, but the whole idea is the mindset. It’s not about how much you own, but about how you think about buying stuff.

Plus, I think, that when having kids, it’s very easy and understandable that you follow the norm (big house, two cars etc.), but when having kids there should be an even bigger reason to question these norms.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
