10 Minimalism Blogs to Help You Simplify Your Life
When you are just starting out with simplifying your life or living minimally, it’s helpful to get inspiration from others. There are so many blogs that have helped me along the way, as well as some newer ones I have found that I just love! That’s why, today on Practigal Blog, I’m going to share with you 10 minimalism blogs to help you simplify your life.
Personally, I got started with pursing minimalism as a lifestyle after watching the documentary, Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things (recommended to me by my good friend Laura who must have known I was a minimalist before I did!). I was already decluttering and simplifying every area of my life at this point, but watching this documentary confirmed it for me.
The film showed me that less really could be more. And it showed me that my current lifestyle was keeping me from the joy and peace I so desperately wanted. Even though I couldn’t relate to everything in the film, I knew that I could find my own version of intentional minimalism that would work for our family.
10 Minimalism Blogs to Follow
Since then, I have started sharing my own tips and ideas for simplifying your life on this blog. And, I’ve begun following and soaking up information from many other blogs as well. There are so many minimalism blogs out there that can help you minimize the clutter in every way possible!
Whether you are working on decluttering your home, your time, or your mind, these simplifying and minimalism blogs have got you covered.
Each of these blogs is both inspirational and practical. (They don’t tell you what to do without showing you how to do it!) I believe that minimalism does not look the same for each person or family, and these minimalism blogs show that in their different approaches to minimalism.
Check each of them out and see which of these simplifying and minimalism blogs most resonate with you!

If you feel like your life is in chaos, look no further than the blog Modern Simplicity by Sandy Kreps. She offers such great advice on everything from decluttering to simplifying household chores to limiting your child’s screen time.

Rachel Jones is “The Joyful Space Specialist” on her blog, Nourishing Minimalism. She wants to help each of us transform our homes into peaceful spaces that nourish us instead of stress us out.

On Smallish Blog, Evelyn comes from the rare perspective of minimalism from a biblical perspective, which I love. She teaches us how to minimize our stuff and be more purposeful with our time. This simple blog is perfect for those of us who want to find a form of Christian minimalism.
10. The Simplicity Habit
I recently discovered The Simplicity Habit, and I’m so glad that I did. On her new blog, Julianna gives valuable decluttering advice, especially for those of us with kids. Her and I share much the same goal in simplifying: we simplify so that we can spend our time and energy on more important things. This simplify your life blog is about living a more intentional life that we love!

Great read. I have a friend who wrote a book about minimalism and it changed my life after reading it.
Thanks! I bet it did change your life. Are you pursuing a more minimal lifestyle then?
The only two activities I will multitask are running the dryer and composing on the computer or tablet. And it’s not going to make the clothes wrinkle too badly if I don’t happen to hear the buzzer.
Interesting, been seeing the term slow living more these days. I’ve found minimalism very impactful and started to write about it as well, hoping to share it with others who could benefit 🙂
