18 MUST-READ MINIMALISM BLOGS

The first minimalist living blog I ever read was The Minimalists by Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus, it opened my eyes to a whole way of living that really appealed to me. I’ve been working minimalist living into my life ever since.

In fact, reading The Minimalists is what started me on a path to lead a more intentional life and find financial freedom. I think all three lifestyle philosophies are intertwined, which is why I write about all three on Less & Live More. It’s very easy to understand the way to escape the confines of our consumerist society when you juxtapose it against a minimalist living philosophy.

There are a LOT of blogs about minimalism out there, indeed there are many facets to minimalism and many ways to come at it. Whilst I love the minimalist aesthetic and poring over minimalist lifestyle blogs, this list is focused on blogs on minimalist living. That’s to say, they are written by people who are choosing to use minimalism as a way to lead their lives and shape all areas of their lives, not just their home and personal style. 

MINIMALIST LIVING, SIMPLE LIVING, LIVING WITH INTENTION…

These blogs cover minimalist living, simple living, living with intention, slow living and mindful money management. But ultimately, each of these blogs is a great read if you are just starting out on your own journey to lead a more minimalist life. 

The list runs in no particular order, I have included some of the really well-known minimalism blogs because they are brilliant, but I’ve also included smaller, rising stars of the minimalist blogging world because there really are some gems out there. 

Just before you dive into the list… if you’d like to find out more about what I write about on Less & Live More please click the links to some of my posts:

What I love about Jennifer’s blog, Simply + Fiercely is that it makes minimalism and intentional living so accessible. It’s just as beautiful to read and look at as some of the more well-known minimalist lifestyle blogs, but it’s just that bit easier to imagine yourself mirroring Jennifer’s lifestyle. Jennifer went from shopaholic to minimalist and shares all her learnings, experiences and suggestions for doing the same on Simply + Fiercely.

5. BECOMING MINIMALIST

Becoming Minimalist minimalism blog by Joshua Becker, top 18 minimalist living blogs, minimalism, Blogs about minimalism, Minimalism blogs, Minimalist lifestyle blogs

Joshua Becker is one of the uber-minimalist bloggers and his blog. I have to say I wasn’t drawn to Becoming Minimalist the second I landed on it, because the font is a dull brown and it’s not that beautiful to look at. There, I’ve said it 😉 I am an aesthetic snob and I’m working on it 😉 But once I got reading, oh boy! Joshua talks about his focus on simplicity and minimalism in every aspect of his life, which really resonates with me. It’s easy to see minimalism simply as a design concept, but minimalism is actually a design for life.

14. MR MONEY MUSTACHE

Mr Money Mustache Peter Adeney, Intentional living, retire early, minimalist blogs, financial freedom blogger, FIRE, retire early bloggers

A slight curve-ball entry here. Peter Adeney is the king of the retire early bloggers, but a lot of his philosophies are grounded in minimalism. His site is refreshingly retro in appearance. I am literally reading through Mr Money Mustache post by post, it’s that good and inspirational. Peter has also written the foreword to an updated, relaunched in 2018 version of Your Money or Your Life: 9 Steps to Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence, which I am mid-way through reading at the moment, it is beyond doubt the best book I’ve ever read on our relationship with money and how to improve it.
