When you compare the lifestyle of a city-living apartment dweller to a farm family, it’s apples to oranges. There is no question that living in the country requires more stuff.
When we moved to our farm, we realized there were things we really did need if we were going to make our desired lifestyle work. That meant acquiring even more stuff. The minimalist in me cringes to write that. But it’s true, this lifestyle makes minimalism difficult.
Difficult, but not impossible!
