While empty-nesters lighten their loads of possessions collected over decades, down-sizing to smaller homes, younger adults who are coping with student loans, geographic challenges and / or job unavailability in careers they've studied for, and other financial insecurities, minimalism has become a trend.

The amazing amount of attraction there is for tiny homes is one example of the popularity minimalist life is achieving. Shedding the need to own a motor vehicle and opting in to public transportation and rideshare services is another minimalist trend many millennials (and others) in larger cities can rest easier with.
Minimalist comments heard recently:
“Too many possessions, too much furniture, it stresses me out. I don’t want to think about it every time I move.”
“I’m not going to buy anything brand new until I get married and settled, in my forties maybe. It’s better to buy second hand so I don’t feel bad getting rid of it every time I move.”
“Less space to clean is good. Less things to clean and open easy spaces to clean makes cleaning go faster: It rocks! “
Also, lamentations of a non-minimalist may be a warning for others:
“Downsizing is so difficult. I love everything we have. How do you decide what to keep?”
Life is unpredictable and expensive. Who doesn’t want to save space and money?
(If you’re not a minimalist, you probably save space and money for more things, right? Maybe get more space for more things…)
