Realistic Minimalism

Today we wrote a list of our eldest daughters belongings and it felt good to know she had less than a 100 things. She could be considered almost a hardcore or extreme Minimalist – if she was a Vegan (and a true Vegan; not using or wearing animal based products) and reducing her waste on the Earth – but that’s not practical for her at the moment as she’s too young to understand; you may argue that she’s not too young to understand – but she’s happy the way she is and we personally feel that WE would deprive her; it may be good for some families but not us – although we are trying our best to do our part.

She is probably the youngest “almost” hardcore Minimalist and it wasn’t by choice; she is only 5 year of age (nearly 6) and still learning about pretty much everything.

Now, you must take note before judging – we do a lot of activities and arts & crafts. We prefer experiences and memories over materialistic stuff/things you feel you need to own, so that’s why there aren’t many “toys”.
