Minimalists don't spend their time and energy collecting, cleaning, moving, & maintaining unnecessary stuff. They de-clutter so that they have more time and space and energy to devote their time to doing the things they enjoy more.
Whether that's traveling, cooking,
playing games, dancing,
The average person from developed countries is busy working to pay for new stuff, most of which is unnecessary stuff. Or they are working to pay for the stuff they've already acquired on credit. Or working to maintain their stuff, or store their stuff.
While we've been looking for rentals, we've seen our fair share of opened garage doors, and the vast majority of those garages are full of so much stuff that the vehicles are left parked outside of them.
You know exactly what I'm talking about.
