Minimalist Must Haves
Posted on By Diana
The minimalist lifestyle is all about making do with less, reducing consumption, and living sustainably. It's not about roughing it or creating a more challenging lifestyle because minimalists still enjoy the comforts and convenience of modern life. Minimalists don't need much, but there are a few things they can't live without, so read on to find out about the minimalist must-haves that will help you get through your day.
Wallets and handbags are so essential that even minimalists can't leave the house without them. Fortunately, there's a range of minimalist stuff you can use to secure your most essential items without the bulk.
A good minimalist wallet design will help you avoid the Costanza "Fat Wallet" Syndrome. The "Fat Wallet" syndrome is a made-up condition based on the character of George Constanza in Seinfeld, who always carried a wallet stuffed with non-essentials.
The best minimalist wallets make you forget you are even carrying them, but a wallet that also poses as an attractive bracelet accessory adds extra security as well.
Satisfy your minimalist needs and carry only the essentials in a comfortable, convenient, easily accessible fashion accessory such as badges, credit cards, and IDs. All items lay ergonomically along your arm to keep them neatly hidden from view. It sure is more freeing than carrying a bulky purse with a strap or chunky wallet in a back pocket that makes sitting an uncomfortable proposition.
Without a bulky handbag hanging off your shoulder, you become less of a target for would-be thieves tempted to do a snatch and run. A fashion belt with cleverly hidden secret pockets gives you the capacity to carry your essential cards, licenses, bus passes, money, and keys in unobtrusive security. Criminals will be none the wiser that you have valuables on your person, and you get to go about your day with freedom from bulky handbags, purses, or wallets.
Due to the pandemic, face masks have become almost a mandatory part of your minimalist travel accessories kit. Regulations change daily and often at a moment's notice, so you don't want to be caught out without your mask.
Disposable face masks are a wasted resource and not in line with a minimalist's ideals for sustainability. Plus, they aren't very stylish.
Make a washable, cotton-poly fabric a part of your minimalist essentials kit. The inside filter pocket frees you to use almost anything suitable as a filter, including PM2.5 carbon filters, paper towels, tissues, or baby wipes. When disposed of properly, these products are biodegradable and provide various options for increasing your protection against infection using whatever material you have on hand.
You can purchase handmade cotton Poly-fabric masks in a wide range of fashionable styles to express your individuality. They are hand washable and can be used multiple times.
These are just some of the minimalist essential items you can use to improve convenience and security. When you choose high-quality minimalist items, a reductionist lifestyle does not equate to an uncomfortable existence.
