What does it mean to be a minimalist?
And why would anyone want to be a minimalist?
Having less stuff enables me to live lightly and travel freely. It helps me make calculated choices, and expend energy in the right places. Now I put more thought into purchasing clothes than I do in putting clothes together.
But as for a specific number of pieces? It’s up to you.
Project 333 [3 months, 33 items] is a good starting point for many, since it is achievable for most people, and is customizable.
Minimalism is not about reaching a certain number of possessions. It’s about your deliberate choices.
I’ve come up with three points that determine how many items you should have:
- How much storage space you have
- What kinds of different occasions you need/want to consider
- How often you can/want to clean your clothes

What do you think about my three points? Did I leave any out?
