Source: Why I’m uncomfortable being labeled a minimalist

I’m sharing this post because it gave me something to think about that I never considered before.  It IS a privilege to choose to be a minimalist.  And while I would never use that term for myself, because I’m really not, it is mostly people who are financially comfortable that do use it.

Her point about whether or not it takes away from the people who are struggling to pay their bills and buy their food really made me stop and think.  I think she may be right in suggesting that it does belittle their struggle.

Hope you guys find this post as much of a thought started as I did!
