While it is not a new concept, the minimalism trend has gained popularity in recent years, especially amongst Millennials in the United States. From tiny houses to the KonMari organization method, people are finding unique ways to declutter their lives. At its core, minimalism is a lifestyle that chooses everything with intent and gets rid of things that cause distraction or serve no purpose. When people eliminate distracting things from their lives, it opens new opportunities to focus on other areas. One area that minimalism can help you refocus on is your finances. With less material items in your life, you can better prioritize how you budget and spend your money. Adopting a minimalist lifestyle isn’t as simple as throwing a few things away, and it can require a lot of discipline to fully take on. If you’re in need of some extra inspiration to help you embrace minimalism, these TED Talks will help you see the value in it and how it can help you to spend less and begin your path to a debt-free life.

Minimalism primarily focuses on decluttering your physical space of material items, and only keeping or purchasing items that provide value to you. In doing this, you free yourself of distractions and the temptation to buy unnecessarily. While minimalism does not stop you from spending money, it can help you shift your focus on more important ways to budget and spend. Over time, the changes in your spending habits by adopting minimalism can add up and make a difference, and you can find yourself in a healthier financial situation.
