Minimalism - Love Your Socks!

Minimalists don't own stuff. Or at least, they do but less than the norm. And so they tend to love what they own more, simply because everything they own is functional or beautiful to them. Some Minimalists try to merge the two.

On a page on Facebook last week, one woman asked for ideas on how to not hate washing the dishes. My suggestion, which got some laughs but also the approval of the person asking the question, was simple enough: I said 'Buy dishes you like!'

For when we own things we love, we take better care of them. And without useless junk distracting our eyes and minds from what is important or lovely to us, we live solely with things we appreciate. Yes, even socks! I love my socks. I mostly buy socks with designs I love, rather than plain ones. As a result I always love putting on my socks in the morning.

See, being Minimalist can be lots of fun. ;-)
