A few years ago, I began to realize I had fallen into a self-destructive bad habit. Every day, I was working hard at the print shop and would often go home tired and fatigued, only to be greeted by “messes” everywhere. Do you ever feel the same way? Do you ever feel like you never get to relax because there’s an endless list of stuff you need to pick up, clean up, organize, or manage at home after work each day? I confess that I often felt that way.

Five years ago, I’d never heard of “Rational Minimalism,” but today it has literally changed my life. As a result, I save more money, spend less time cleaning and organizing my stuff, and sometimes actually have free time after work to just sit and relax without feeling guilty that I need to be cleaning my garage, organizing my utility room, or taking care of a dozen other endless tasks that used to consume my free time.
My name is Mike Stevens, and I am a printer.
