Minimalism is a ongoing process. I don’t think there is a really a point where you can say “Ok, I have accomplished minimalism, now on to the next thing.” It doesn’t really work like that. It is something you must work at and develop good habits to continue living clutter free. So what I have done for you guys is create a checklist that you can follow every month to really make sure you are still on track for your minimalist journey. This list is just to help you each month clear out some things you may have bought and keep yourself motivated to keep minimizing your life. There is a PDF attached you can download if you would like, and I really hope you guys find this useful!
