6 Streaming Documentaries Sure to Fuel Your Minimalist Fire

In an increasingly overwhelming world, minimalism is having a moment. It seems very appealing (and doable!) to take control of your life one possession at a time. You can purge what you don’t need, get educated and intentional about what you do need, and forget the rest.

If you constantly feel like you’re too busy, too tired, or too broke, minimalism says that a life with less stuff promises more. More time, more contentment, more money, and perhaps most appealing of all, more happiness. So whether you’ve already Kondo-ed your whole home, are looking for inspiration to do so, or have no idea what I’m talking about, here are 6 documentaries to fuel your minimalist fire this weekend.

These Are The 6 Types of Minimalists. Which One Are You?

Minimalism, in modern culture, is a word infused with so much meaning that it doesn’t seem to mean anything any more. “Minimalism” is thrown around carelessly, and often offered (in the case of a book or an article, including many you might see on this site) without enough context to understand if we’re all on the same page. And often, we aren’t.

Gorgeous Homes That Are Short on Stuff But Big on Style

The term “minimal” has been used a lot in recent years. It seems many have been looking to simplify their lives and their homes, perhaps to create a calm sanctuary in the face of a complex world.

“Less is more,” is how the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe famously described his style. Buckminster Fuller tried “doing more with less.” I think the reason why minimalism has resonated with so many people as a design style is because it encourages focusing on the essential elements needed to create a home. It’s not so much about “empty” homes or feeling like you can’t decorate. It’s about stripping away what’s unnecessary until you are left with just the things you need and that make you happy. Doing more with less.

I think “minimal” now is beyond the definition any textbook can give it. Embraced by different people, the idea of living more minimally has been interpreted in fresh ways. Some people focus on the aesthetics of minimalism in order to create a peaceful space that brings them calmness. Others dive deep into the philosophy of minimalism, focusing on the things in life that are most important to them, and crafting a home that reflects that.

Whatever your interest level may be in minimalism, find the inspiration (and resources) that influenced the people living in these beautiful, real, minimal homes.

There’s the short-term aspect of having less stuff — get rid of one item every day, tackle one room at a time, put everything in boxes and only keep what you actually end up using, etc. Then there is the long-term side of minimalism — what is important to me, what are my goals, what makes me happy, is what I’m doing contributing to my long-term plan or my happiness?

The goal isn’t to end up at a set number of items or a space that looks a certain way; instead it’s a shift away from stuff. So long as the focus is tidy drawers and getting rid of a certain number of items, we haven’t moved away from the importance of stuff. Instead, ask yourself what matters most to you. Do the things you have in your life contribute to that or take away from whatever that is?

You’re Not The Only One Thinking It: Hilariously Relatable Tweets About Minimalism

Paring down and living a more minimalist life sounds amazing in theory, but when you’re a “stuff” person—someone who owns a lot of things and tends to form emotional attachments to them—it can be a serious challenge to downsize. Even getting rid of stuff you never use and really don’t need to keep can be a struggle—sometimes you have an attachment because it was a gift or has sentimental meaning, or sometimes you just have guilt because it’s something you spent money on and you feel wasteful not holding on to it. In any case, letting go is difficult, even when you actively want to pare down.

The 10/10 Decluttering Exercise Will Make You Rethink Your Attachment to Stuff

Some people just aren’t “stuff” people—they’re born minimalists who just don’t acquire much and seemingly don’t get attached to their things. But there are plenty of us who are stuff people. It can be because we assign emotional value to things that makes them hard to let go of. For others, it may be that we just don’t like parting with things we’ve spent money on.

These Memorable Mantras Will Help You Declutter and Guide Your Quest for Less

The most powerful tool in your decluttering arsenal? It’s your mind. Truly, when you seem to have a problem with “too much,” the biggest obstacle in the way of getting rid of needless things is your own brain. It’s there in the background insisting, maybe, that you’ll wear that ill-fitting dress some day again, or that this old broken lamp is the last thing that connects you to the memory of your grandparents’ condo.
