Which type of minimalist are you ?

Aesthetic : They don’t necessarily own less, but they certainly have less on display.

Essential : They are obsessed with using less, having less and paring down their belongings to only the ultimate basics.

Experimental : You might also call them “backpack” minimalists for their ability to fit their entire life into a bag and be ready for anything.

Sustainable : Their focus is on green living: reducing their dependence on, consumption of and harm to the environment.

Thrifty :  the end goal is about spending less rather than using less. They embrace minimalist tendencies because of their financial mindset.

Mindful : They practice sensible moderation not for any particular financial, ecological or aesthetic reasons, but purely in search of their own peace of mind.
