An early discovery on my road to living a simpler and more productive life was Leo Babuata’s website. I found his posts very helpful as they are not just about decluttering our homes or being organized. They go deep into the feelings related to why we accumulate stuff. In my experience articles solely with tips and tricks are not enough for real change. Reflecting on the why and the how we have messy overburdened lives is key. This blog has both. I really like that. Also, he is a father of 6 children so his blog explores what minimalism can look like for families with children.
Internet famous for her 333 project that has participants living with 33 items of clothing for 3 months, Courtney Carver writes about much more than capsule wardrobes. Her blog is rich with personal examples of how living with less, living in a simple way has brought so much value to her life. She offers a variety of super affordable courses to help simplify your life. I am a big fan of her course How To Create a Meaningful Routine. It was a game changer for me.

Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus are probably the most famous minimalists on the Internet. They have published a number of books, have a documentary coming out in May 2016 and post quick to read, insightful (and often amusing) essays at their blog on the regular. What I like about them is that they base their minimalist lifestyle about what brings value to their lives – not about a specific number objects they own. Also they often state that we should love people and use stuff and never the reverse resonates so strongly with me.
BTW They have a fantastic podcast that I listen to when I take my weekly long walk. You can find it on iTunes and Soundcloud.
