When I started my minimalism journey, I needed a lot of help. After a lot of researching, I gained the minimalism inspiration I needed to take control of my life and everything within it.
All of the resources mentioned are what helped me and inspired my minimalism journey. I hope they help you as well!
This first group of resources are blog posts and videos I found to help me understand what minimalism is really about. I learned that minimalism is more than decluttering down to the essentials, but that it creates an impact in every area of your life.
Ted Talks and Presentations
The following Ted Talks and presentations helped me see how minimalism could evolve into other areas of my life. They are inspirational and impactful.
Minimalist Decor Inspiration
While I was ready to declutter, I didn’t quite understand what minimalism looked like when it comes to decor. These are just a new posts that helped me see how I could simplify my home and gave me something to work towards.
Decluttering isn’t easy. It takes a lot of thought and combing through what you have. There were times I was ready to give up, but after watching videos and reading blog posts, I was ready to get back to it.
These videos and blog posts taught me and motivated me to really dig deep. While decluttering is always a work in progress, they helped me get rid of my excess a lot quicker than I would have without them.
Intentional Living Inspiration
After I finished decluttering the second time, I wondered what was next. It felt weird to not have a big project and the time I gave back to myself felt pointless in the beginning.
These resources led me to see how much life has to offer when you’re intentional with where you are headed.
BONUS!! Minimalists Share What They No Longer Buy
I love watching videos and reading blog posts about things that minimalists no longer buy. It helps give you a different perspective on the things you use.
While you aren’t going to agree with each decision they have made, it is a great way to rethink some of the things you purchase on a regular basis.

Bringing the Minimalism Inspiration Altogether
It can be overwhelming to start the process of becoming a minimalist. This is why I believe these resources are so valuable.
When you see that other people have gone before you to declutter their lives to live with more intention, it motivates you to keep at it. After all, these are just normal people, like you, trying to better themselves and create more room for what matters most.
