"WE HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF!" That's the definition of a first world problem

I used to be a really big fan of them and I do still agree with the philosophy in general... however, it really twisted my mind into thinking, as someone who is essentially unemployed and is on benefits, all I need to be happy and save money is just to not consume and have stuff. Because even though I essentially have no money, I'm living this etheral life. Which is kind of dangerous? I just threw out heaps of shit that materially brought me no happiness sure, but when you live close to the poverty line and your possessions (especially clothes which other people see) are the only semblance of a secure and "normal" life, it makes me so mad that they, who were on six-figure incomes before they dived into this, are profiting off my adoption of this philosophy. It just REEKS of (very white) privilege.

It was so scripted. And yes the way it was shot with them speaking with the dim lights was like all these Pinterest churches. This documentary wasn’t needed. The principle is sound but ugh they let me down.

For me minimalism was about what I could learn to do myself rather than buy. I learned a LOT about stuff I never thought I could do! And I can say to this day, they never found the bodies.

I used to listen to their podcast when they were starting getting recognition and enjoyed it but then I was put off by things such as: 1. podcast contained Q&A from their tour which was same stuff every episode 😩 2. They talked a lot about not wanting to interview anyone then all of a sudden they move to LA to interview other podcasters duplicating what has already been said 😑 3. Their fascination with LA went bizarre given how much they claimed to love Montana 🙄

They are vague because they don't actually live a minimalist lifestyle. That's why they are squeezing out as much money as they can.

I went into their documentary excited, hoping it would be like Marie Kondo. It made me so minimalist, I gave little to no fuck about the empty documentary. Like, sure, I liked them during their tedtalk days but they really need some substance and fresh new specific idea to approach minimalism already if they want to make a new documentary, if not, then just why bother.

Marie Kondo's take on decluttering (which is a subsection of minimalism) is milder and more of a "breath of fresh air." this documentary however feels so intense, forced and culty lmao

This minimalist trend is one of biggest BS I've ever seen in recent years. ALnetsrs go: "Look at my minimalist closet", and the guys shows like 50 shirts, 30 pairs of shoes, 25 pairs of pants... Dude, if you're a minimalist, you would 7 shirts, two pairs of shoes and two pairs of shoes.

This wasn’t a doco about minimalism it was a doco about The Minimalists in identical terms as the last doco!! So boring and disappointing. LOVED your video to know I’m not alone in my disappointment. I recommend the documentary The True Cost if you want to learn more about the dangers of fast fashion and consumerism generally, and of course Marie Kondo for a how to of minimalism.

I mean minimalism in theory is kind of obvious things we kinda knew already. “Material things can’t buy happiness” etc It’s like Yeahh I know that. But I’ve always been poor so I’m pretty sure if I were rich I’d be pretty stoked
