Thank y'all so much for the brithday gifts episode. My friend's last year in her 20's birthday is coming up and there's been a lot of hype surrounding it. I've been struggling with what to get her because I have this reputation of being an excellent gift giver, however, this year I'm stumped. I've always been one to honor the non-obligatory/gift that adds value gift and while listening to this episode, I came up with the best idea thanks to y'all! She's been struggling in her dating life so I think I will take her on the best date of her life so she won't settle for these guys that don't want to put in any effort. I want her to start the last year in her 20's as a confident woman who knows her self-worth. Assisting her with this venture would be the best gift I could give her with an immense amount of value.

The blond guy is probably a nice person, no doubt but harder to listen to, sometimes too pushy in his ways and that translates bad on the show (marketing the payable option with also the vibe "I have to do do this with a big smile" That can comes out not so genuine and rather offputting// after all you worked with sells so probably second skin to you which is OK but yeah//. Minimalism is attached to humility in my case so it JUST doesn't match. The dark hair guy is always a breeze of fresh air, positive and goofy lovable. That being said, I think this topic was a good one and I will keep listening to your show. Even if you repeat yourself (And I am not saying that you are) it is almost necessary to truly get our overwashed brains to implement something more meaningful and for this I thank you! Love you both! And sorry for not remembering face or names, it is a condition, Al pacino and Andy Garcia are also the same person to me :)

I think it's more about social network clutters, not digital clutters. at least the first 20 minutes.

I loved this podcast when it first started. it was original, thoughtful, and had genuine hosts. Now, a lot of the episodes sound the same, there are hour long conversations about one of the host's health that are extremely similar to one another, and the people they have on often have no expertise but tell the audience that "you ARE the most important person on the planet!" It feels more like a religious self help feel good podcast than a podcast about minimalism. At the beginning, it wasn't all about the hosts and how they live in CA now. I tried to keep listening but I would feel a dread every time a new podcast would pop up. Josh is very condescending and narcissistic. My advice: start from the beginning, and once they start to sound repetitive stop listening.

it was just so weird for me to hear Joshua say something like earning 23 thousand dollars a year is not so much. Where i live, in Brazil, this kind of salary would be a complete dream for everyone

These quickie episodes are not just short, but annoyingly short. I've taken to just deleting them as soon as they arrive in my feed to spare q myself the frustration.

Sometimes you can do small changes that fit your values. I worked for an aquarium that had different conservation ideas than I did. Styrofoam recycling is a big soap box of mine. It is 100% recyclable and should not end up in landfills. It is used a lot in aquariums and veterinary areas. The organisation wouldn't include it in their green program but my boss would let me collect Styrofoam containers and if needed store in our locket room until I could transport to the recycling center (sometimes it took me two truck loads to get it all there). Soon people asked me about bringing in their Omaha meat coolers. Administrative personnel began to notice and ask about the different types of Styrofoam. I did this for four years. One year after I left my boss let me know Styrofoam recycling is now part of the company's green program. That would have never happened of I had just quit or kept quiet.

hello dear minimalists im just started to try to be a minimalist i mean a real one , while i was listening to your first podcast you said some stuff about throwing away our picture, well cause im new on this i thought it might be intemperance i mean why should we throw our memories away ? when they doesnt take place more than a book or two?when we feel good about them and by watching them time to time we remember good times and get energy.

faezeh sadeghzadeh Hi, saw your question - you asked about the stuff about memories. I feel there is nothing wrong in keeping memories if they feel good. Minimalism doesn't mean that we should throw everything away and live on the streets. Use your own judgment and do what feels right for you. Certain things do have sentimental value and I would not like to throw them just because some speaker or teacher has a different opinion. what works for one person may not be right for you. The real thing is to live a balanced life enjoy the small comforts with gratitude and abundant mindset and contribute to society in your capacity. One does not really have to be a minimalist or poor to prove something in life. Excessive materialism is definitely bad so we must have a balance. If you are lucky to have abundance then share them with others in the right manner. Whatever kind of life we live, the main thing is that we should be truly happy and contented and live in honesty and integrity. This is the correct approach to life! Just being a minimalist is not enough. One should be a good person at heart and in soul. Otherwise, this is just an external show of poverty mindset which will not help in the long run despite what people may say! Good Luck and Regards!
