The Minimalism Game

the minimalism game

I think I’m the last lifestyle blogger on earth who is yet to KonMari their life. It’s not that I don’t want to, it’s just that I don’t want to, yet.

Just like I swore I’d turn to Vegetarianism when I finished Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals, but still haven’t finished those last few chapters three years on.

I’m sure at some point this year I’ll buy The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying and revolutionise my life, but until then I’ve found another bandwagon to jump on.

How to play the Minimalism Game

Hannah from Hannah in the House is one of my favourite bloggers. Her love of all things
Scandinavian and minimalist really appeals to me even if my own home looks more like an eclectic mad house. So when I read about The Minimalism Game on her blog I thought it was a concept worth exploring.

The Minimalism Game is great for people like me as a) gamification b) accountability (#MinsGame) and c) it’s a gradual process.

The idea is simple: get rid of one thing in your home on the first day, two things on the second, three on the third and so forth.

Although I’ll be playing the Minimalism Game to get rid of stuff at home I love Hannah’s idea of also using it to tidy up an inbox and unsubscribe from spam. But one thing at a time, yeah?
