A couple months ago, I watched a documentary called The Minimalists.
I wasn’t expecting it to inspire and motivate me as much as it did. Immediately after watching the film, I decided that I wanted to get out of consumerism and become more responsible for my purchasing decisions.
I got serious about saving money. The first step was to look at where my money was going. Then I set a goal. I had a goal to get to $5,000, and now that I’m almost there, my goal is to get to $10,000. Setting up goals makes this process a lot more fun. It ends up being somewhat of a game or a challenge, which I love.
I’m going to include what I did to cut spending and save money, how much it will save my yearly, and what you can do instead to replace the item.
