The best of minimalism and simple living blogs.

I really don’t like advertisements appearing in the middle of what you’re trying to read (plus I think it goes against the whole vibe of simple living and minimalism), so these sites are completely third-party ad-free 🙂

Becoming Minimalist
I have followed Joshua Becker for years and his was the first dedicated minimalist blog I found. I have been a huge fan since around 2012 and he has never wavered in his authenticity or commitment.

Be More With Less
Courtney Carver – founder of Project 333. Another blog I have followed for absolutely years. Again, she is still 100% authentic and loves living a life with less.

Zen Habits
I bought Leo’s book (see Recommended Reads) in a shop Exeter before my first child was born, 9 years ago. Brilliant, useful and no frills writing.

The Minimalists
They have such an important message, but I will admit I found their writing a little dry (serious?) to begin with. It changed for me when I finally watched their documentary and I really got to see their personalities come through. Lots of great articles, well worth reading.

Useful organisations

Sometimes you need a little extra help, or someone else to guide you. Asking for help helps you move forward. When you have a serious problem, counselling or a professional declutterer can give you a much-needed objective view and get you back on the right track.

Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers

British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
