Falling down the Minimalist rabbit hole

I’ve been downsizing and decluttering my apartment for at least two weeks now and to be honest, I have no idea anymore how Youtube became aware of that, but suddenly my feed was full of Minimalist Youtube.

I’m by no means someone close to minimalistic, a lot of the advice is mere common sense, but so far they all have one thing in common: They’re obviously well off.

Until a few years ago I was a broke student, so a lot of their advice I would’ve laughed right out of the door.
Quality over quantity? Only buying what’s absolutely neccessary? Just fuck off.

Now I’m in a very different situation, that’s why a lot of advice actually is useful to me or something I can do, but I still find it strange having all those smug middle-class people talking about ways to spend less money in a way a broke or poor person could never afford.
