Being A Minimalist At IKEA- is it possible?

even though i believe that nothing is impossible, i can say that is very hard to be a minimalist in IKEA.

I was never with the idea that shopping is my hobby or something like that, i never liked shopping, or was so lazy to go and buy clothes (which now it remains the same), but if you invite me to places like this, i would not think it twice. Or maybe yes, i would better like to go alone.

Everything that has to do with interior and design, all about home and decor, brings me joy and satisfaction. I am so curious when it comes to that, and want to explore every detail.
It was my first time, visiting Ikea and i really didn’t have that much time to explore it all, because it was so big.
First impression: Coffee was for free! They know me (lol). Then tried to go to every corner which they made for all the clients, of course i found my kind of corner. Very relaxing. Very Scandinavian living. Very modern and simple.
On the other side, i was trying to stay away of distractive things, which, fortunately i can say was very less.

Regarding to the logic of minimalism, i do not like to spend money on things that i do not need, so i try to choose carefully. Actually on everything that i buy, i try to be careful and very rational. And want to transmit this message to all of you, who follow me. Think twice before you buy things. Do you really need it? Is it worth it? When you answer this questions in your head and everything is clear, you end up buying less and very essential things, trust me.

Thank you for reading,
much love DL

    I know exactly what you mean. Ikea is the best place to find small scale furnishings for those smaller apartments and homes but because they focus so much on organizational pieces it would be easy to fall into the trap of buying more to fill those organizers. On the other hand the best purchase I ever made was a set of CD boxes. One holds all my music (in paper sleeves), a handful of DVDs, and another serves as my sewing box which keeps me from holding on to anything more than the basic supplies.

      Hello, firstly thanks for your comment.
      I am glad that you bought something useful. Nowadays it is very rare, because of too many things.
      But yeah me too, i am also sometimes falling into the trap, but i am learning how not to be part of it, that’s why i choose minimalism.
