>that feel when you will never have a crazy /min/ redhead gf

Post last edited at


Post with specifications. floor area good to know; volume too, yet not often specified (are the realtors hiding something? are they stupid?), better: exact shape (too many rectilinear /min/ homes) and size). included/installible appliances. total and itemized creation (design, manufacture (goods (ultimately: labor), labor), proper usage training), usage (consumption requirements of common activities (goods, labor)) cost. reliance on externals. et cetera..



Forest fires? Speeds to down, move, re-up? Single door!? Maybe back, floor, skylight doors.

Also, KD, "math"? Sure, math. But others too, no "math". Why? You do you, ig. Lazy sound, too.

>having a visual computer display

real minimalists listen to the output of their computers through a single headphone with frayed wire (found on the street, not cleaned because too cleaning takes time, and taking time is not /min/. the rubber earpiece is traded for a paper clip) stuck to a pair of circuit contacts, using greasy eye-cruft (built up from not bathing, because bathing takes time, and taking time is not /min/), which are programmed to emit sound data based on the contents of the computer working memory.

It's okay if it replaces normal clothes.

Although I would say wear normal underwear to hide boners.


Don't wear white clothes, so you only need to wash them when they start to stink. I always assume everyone wearing black, except me, is secretly slovenly.

Hello, I come from the future (2018). Here and now we just slide everything up our orifices.

What's the difference between /min/ and OCD? I mean, I get the practical benefits of removing stuff you don't need, but where do you draw the line between practical, justifiable minimalism and habits that are just downright destructive?

Has anyone on /min/ ever had these concerns regarding themselves?

Has anyone ever met someone who's taken /min/ too far?

This is an excellent question. I definitely think there's a correlation between old people hoarding and some traumatic Great Depression experience they may have gone through. Logic dictates the opposite would be true too, that /min/ stuff would be the other side of the coin. And I'd like to turn your attention to the attached video.

ITT Post Frugality Advice

I'll start with what I know

rice, oatmeal, potatoes, and bananas are cheap foods. Peanut butter is cheap in terms of calories per dollar. Eating mcdoubles for the gains is a meme.

I used to own a prepaid phone to save on cell charges, but realized switching to republic wireless will save me money in the long run. look into it, but only if you have wi-fi at home. I paid $16 last month.

Instead of buying a treadmill, consider buying a jump rope. It's a lot of cardio and forces you to keep good form throughout.

Storage space is the cheapest spec of a computer and will only get cheaper. Take that into consideration when you buy your next computer.

I recently installed a programmable thermostat and will update with whether or not it's saved me any.

>biking would take forever

do you live in the mid-west?

Last year I spent a total amount of $834.81 on gas and $714 on car insurance, and $1639.92 on repairs. I could have saved $750 of those 16 hundred had I fixed it myself. It was a stupid pressured decision I made.

I don't know. I really like having a car. To each their own I guess. But I guess you're more /min/ than I am.






E-reader, man. I have a library in my bag every day, nook doesn't disappoint. Cheap af too, and it's actually super easy to torrent popular novels.


>buy used furniture off craigslist (scored nearly new Ikea stuff for like 1/5 of the price)

>buy clothes from goodwill (often brand new items with tags still on them, or luxury brands)

>repair clothing when it rips (look up darning)

>cook almost all my own meals, eat out once every week or two, never get takeout (costs as much as a meal out but is shitty food)

>share a place for cheap rent, plus I get to use their furniture and cooking pans

>buy only what you need

>going to the less expensive grocery store is worth it even if it's further away

>libraries have scanners and printers, no need to buy your own, just use theirs for like ten cents a page

>buy an otterbox for your phone so it never breaks

>get hobbies that are free or nearly free, especially if they don't require much gear


I find biking is faster than the bus, but nothing beats the light rail. Same, man, fuck cars. Bike commute life. Plus I get my exercise in, no need to buy even a jumprope.


I pirate everything. Books, music, anime, shows, even games and software. I'm not paying for that shit. Plus I get it instantly and don't have a bunch of physical copy media laying around.
