Why Minimalist Living Will Never Make You Rich

By | |

Paying yourself first and developing true financial self-discipline is the key to building wealth… not minimalism

Seems like everyone is talking about KonMari these days. For those of you who don’t know about this, KonMari is a minimalist method invented by Marie Kondo for getting rid of clutter in your house.

As described on her website, “The KonMari Method™ encourages tidying by category – not by location – beginning with clothes, then moving on to books, papers, komono (miscellaneous items), and, finally, sentimental items. Keep only those things that speak to the heart, and discard items that no longer spark joy. Thank them for their service – then let them go.”

Rondo gained fame through her book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” but her latest show on Netflix, “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo,” has really pushed her into the cultural conversation.

Minimalist living on the rise

Marie Kondo is part of a broader cultural movement called Minimalism. As “U.S. News and World Report” writes, “For the uninitiated, minimalism is a lifestyle in which participants think carefully about the items that bring value to their lives and eschew those that don’t. It can take many forms. Some people use it as a way to travel the world, owning solely the belongings in their backpacks, while others use it to scale back on unnecessary purchases or lead a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.”
