DISCLAIMERS:

  • Many of these lists are outdated. The purpose of this article is to provide a snapshot of what minimalists own, at a particular time in their life.
  • Many minimalists don’t enjoy keeping a strict count of their possessions and don’t continually update their lists. After all, minimalists don’t want to get caught up tracking all their stuff, they want to be free of it!
  • The way each minimalist blogger counts their items is very different. The numbers aren’t meant to be comparable.
