simple inspiration

How about a little simple inspiration on this fine Friday? I've watched a couple of great documentaries recently on simplifying and cutting back.

First up, a freebie!

It's well worth a watch! A group of strangers come together and attempt to live with a more positive environmental impact. While not everyone wants to downsize this drastically or live in a mud hut, I think we can all be more conscious of the impact of our daily decisions.

Next, is one that's available currently as a paid download, but here's the trailer:

I've been reading The Minimalists blog for quite awhile and also enjoy their podcast. This documentary is a compilation of interviews they did with people from all walks of life, living their own brands of minimalism. I think a lot of people have a certain image of what a minimalist is, but in reality, minimalism looks different for everyone. You don't have to live with just 100 things or have only 33 items in your wardrobe. It's about simplifying your life and removing the excess so that you can focus on what's truly important to you. The video is available on Vimeo right now, but if that doesn't work for you, they do say it'll be available on other platforms at some point in the future so keep an eye out for it!


  1. Thanks for the suggestions! I've had The Minimalists' documentary on my to-watch-list, but I wasn't familiar with the other. I'm looking forward to seeing them both.


Please be kind. =)
