  1. Hey Naveen,
    I have read some of these blogs and look forward to checking some of the others out as well. For me minimalism is all about getting rid of the uneeded and unwanted and only having what is useful and what serves us.

    • I agree with you Justin.
      In fact ,my views on minimalism resonates with yours.
      According to me, minimalism is sticking with essentials and removing clutter from life. It’s all about creating (reclaiming) the time for doing what we really love.
      Thanks for stopping by.

    Truly a great list. I am familiar with almost half of the listed blogs and I am glad to have discovered a few more. I wonder why there are no Indian blogs on minimalism yet. I am sure living a simple life must appeal to many Indians. It is only our generation which has gone blinded by consumerism. Our fathers and forefathers believed in simple and frugal lifestyles, isn’t it?
