Everything I Own as a Minimalist Family

Despite knowing that minimalism is dependent on the individual and their lifestyle, I’ve always been a bit obsessed with what other minimalists own, so I made a list of my own inventory. 

I share a house with my elderly parents so this list won’t include their rooms or belongings. I also haven’t included my kids’ rooms or belongings because that is ever changing and could be a list of its own. Neither do I include all of my husbands belongings (he is naturally minimalist himself although he says he doesn’t identify as one).

No matter where you are on the minimalist scale, or whether you are a minimalist at all, this list is personal to me and matches my current lifestyle as a minimalist with my current hobbies. 

Remember, minimalism doesn’t come down to an exact number of possessions because everyone is different and needs a different number of things. I’m just list and minimalism obsessed and thought I’d share the inventory I made.
