Room Makeovers Without Money

I recently read a great article “Minimalism is Just Another Boring Product Wealthy People Can Buy” which raised some great points about how minimalism and nice decor are out of reach for most people, and it got me thinking. The rooms and dorm rooms I’ve decorated over the last five years, could I have done those if it weren’t for my parents’ and my place of financial privilege? Answer: Probably not.


Sometimes it’s good to get everything out. I looked at my rant and used it as a to-do list, improving everything I could in a day. Yesterday I ordered a chair online, cleaned my room, took my dog for a walk, fixed the slowness on my laptop, and signed up for stuff that’ll get me out of the house and will hopefully motivate me to write more. Maybe I’ll even make friends, who knows?
