5 Questions That Determine An Item’s Potential Sustainable Minimalists

    • Home & Garden

“I really like fixing and building, and my wife and I like to go around on garbage day and pick up useful odds and ends. This of course also turns into a lot of stuff from a minimalist perspective. How do you deal with useful things that have no specific purpose yet?”

 

I believe that determining an item’s potential starts first by knowing thyself. On today’s show, I’m explaining my concept of the eco-minimalist spectrum; I’m also offering 3 tips for managing that space where—when we contemplate purpose—fantasy and reality diverge.

 

Here’s a preview:
