Minimalist Teen's Guide to Minimalism

The Comprehensive Guide to Minimalism

Learn what minimalism is and how to get started living with less. Written by me, the Minimalist Teen!

✍️ A Brief Intro in 100 words!

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Diana. She had everything a person could ever need but she wasn’t happy because she wanted more. One day, she learned about minimalism, which inspired her to let go of her things and live with less. After getting rid of the items that didn’t add value to her life (about 90% of her belongings), she discovered that less really is more. Now she lives a much happier, healthier and deliberate life. She decided to create
to share about minimalism, in the hopes that others will get value from it.

But who exactly are you, Diana, the self-proclaimed “Minimalist Teen”? Tell me more about yourself! 👀
