I'm a minimalist, and although you may be conjuring images in your head of how I live a monk's life you best quit it. There are a lot of fantastical ideas about what makes a minimalist. I'll break it down for you and tell you what it means to be a minimalist for me.
Clutter makes me crazy. I can't stand it. I'm a Virgo-Libra cusp, which means I was born on the Cusp of Beauty. I'm a sucker for pretty things, and organization is beautiful to me. I owe a lot to cannabis for motivating me to organize my home. I've gotten a lot of organizational work done when I'm stoned.
I'd rather spend my days looking fabulous and doing luxurious things than looking for hours through paperwork because I can't let go of old notes and mail. I don't want my precious minutes eaten up because I didn't organize my things. This is one of my key values as a minimalist. Organizing is an act of honoring the limited time I have on earth to do great things.
Imagine that I spend 10 extra minutes each morning looking through my clothes because I didn't put them away after I had washed and dried them. That's 70 minutes in a week I'm wasting because I couldn't spend 15 minutes putting my clothes away. Not to mention I have too many clothes and hold onto clothes I don't even use anymore. Yes, those barely used clothes add to my extra 10 minutes a day of wardrobe hunting.
That is not how I want to live my life. I'm a recovering clutter bug, and, at this point in my life, I'd rather have fewer things. I want the material things I have to be things I use often and things that will last me a long time. I don't believe in having more things of cheaper quality. I believe in having fewer things of higher quality.
I've been eyeing Aeon's stone pipes on their Instagram. Those gold and white gold shine papers look like they need to make a debut at the next cannabis party I put on with April Flores. Right now I have about three thin and fragile glass pipes (that Fat Flower's received as first-time-patient gifts) sitting in my weed drawer that I'd happily give away to folks dabbling with smoking pot in exchange for some free space to store my future Aeon semi-precious stone pipe. That's what I call minimalism.
It's like choosing a top shelf quarter of cannabis over a half ounce of bottom shelf cannabis. Sure, the top shelf quarter is more expensive for fewer grams, but it'll last me longer and be more cost effective in the long run. If I'm going to fill my lungs with smoke or vapor, then it might as well be the most potent flower I can put my hands on.
All their gorgeous products are searchable by profiles, "Suit and Tie," "Adventurer," and "Creative Mind." Aeon Cannabis's products are also searchable by collections, "Basic," "Essentials," "Aromatherapy," and "Featured." You can also search by manufacturer. As an organization-enthusiast, I'm sure you can guess how much these navigation categories excite me.
