Minimalism in Action


I am having a hard time. My phone started having problems, my check engine light came on, and then my laptop died. I am doing this for the first time on my new tablet.

I thought about getting a new laptop, but I cannot justify it. I don’t need Word, PowerPoint, or Excel right now. Getting a new laptop with all the bells and whistles would feel like techno hoarding. Just because I will need something eventually is not sufficient to invest hundreds of dollars on it now, Simplicity demands using what I need and no more.
