Do Minimalists Need Money? shared by Thriving Minimalist

After a certain point, money is meaningless. It ceases to be the goal. The game of life is what counts.

-Aristotle Onassis-

Can minimalists become financially successful and still practice what they preach? Can money be considered a positive exchange of creative energy? What is the difference between frugality and minimalism? Today’s video shared by Conor at Thriving Minimalist is a great exploration into this idea.

Conor received his inspiration from a follower interested in his online 30 Day Self Knowledge and Self Love program. His patron inquired why he would be charging for the program when he was a minimalist. Conor does an awesome job answering this inquiry by giving examples of the uses of money to acquire things which make life more abundant.

  1. I have thought many times about whether minimalism itself requires money, or more money during the ‘start-up’ phase. Wonderful food for thought. Love this, Gus!

    1. Absolutely Renee, I have seen quite a few minimalists producing work which explains the challenges in maintaining the lifestyle. It’s great to have a range of experiences brought to light! Thanks for reading!


  2. Regardless of lifestyle, we all need money unless someone will support us. (I’ve taken the title too literally perhaps.) However, if one is resourceful, entrepreneurial, and frugal, one may earn sufficient money to survive as a minimalist.
