3 Minimalist YouTubers That Inspire Me

Posted in Lifestyle
on November 2, 2016


I’m been on this journey to live more minimally, and I have to be honest—it has been refreshing and incredible. I never knew how much stuff I had that I didn’t truly love, how my closet was a key trigger for my OCD and anxiety. Little by little, month by month, I grew to love the process of weeding out things I didn’t love or need anymore. But, I couldn’t have done it without a little inspiration from some YouTubers who have helped me along this journey.

Today I’m sharing three YouTubers who have inspired me along this journey of becoming more minimal. Now, I’m no where near the level of these women, but that’s because my goals for minimalism are different than their goals, which is perfectly okay.

Rachel Aust


When I stumbled across Rachel a few months ago, I binged watched her videos for a few days straight then I re-watched her videos again because I loved them so much. Her content is simple and she is inspiring for the fashion and beauty bloggers who think they can’t downsize. Rachel shares her life before minimalism and how she had a huge makeup collection, more than 70 pairs of shoes, and clothes she kept for years without wearing. You’ll be inspired by her transformation in life, and she will remind you that you can become a minimalist.  Her channel not only discusses minimalism, but also focuses on lifestyle, health and fitness videos, too!

Allison Anderson


One of the things I love about Allison is that she doesn’t fit the standard mold of a minimalist. She doesn’t live in a world with only white, black and grey; and she does have things that might make you think, “Well how is this living minimally?” Remember, there are not set rules for living a minimalist lifestyle, so as long as you have defined your goals and what minimalism means to you—it’s perfectly okay. Allison is another YouTuber who doesn’t solely focus on minimalism, but also beauty and fashion. She’s another example that you can enjoy makeup and clothes and pursue this lifestyle.

Sarah Nourse


Although I’ve only been watching Sarah for about a month now, her story of working toward minimalism inspired me the most because of her dramatic change in living altogether. She packed her bags and moved to Europe, and has continued her path of minimalism while moving out of the U.S. Sarah has amazing videos on going through your wardrobe, kitchen, and everything in between to downsize and truly focus on the things you need. She also talks about how she changed her buying habits to stay minimal. Her content is only focused on minimalism, but also living in Europe, and other lifestyle content, too! She’s genuine and modern with her life, which is inspiring for millennials looking to become minimalists.
