Minimalist can be materalist!

Rolex Submariner Ref 16610LN Full Set with Patina Dial on Sale

Minimalism is a tool that can assist you in finding freedom. Freedom from the trappings of the consumer culture we’ve built our lives around. Real freedom.
Minimalist can be materialist!?
That doesn’t mean there’s anything inherently wrong with owning material possessions…, Want to own a car or a house? Great, have at it! Want to raise a family and have a career? If these things are important to you, then that’s wonderful. Minimalism simply allows you to make these decisions more consciously, more deliberately. Recently there are a lot of Minimalists in Japan, they have only 4 white shirt, two pair of shoes, 4 pair of socks, no TV, no air-con, their room looks empty, they enjoy so much and they feel great by owning less, they sleep better and they feel like less things to worry about.
There are plenty of successful minimalists who go different lives. Colin Wright owns 51 things and travels all over the world, and Tammy Strobel and her husband live in a “tiny house” and are completely car-free. Even though each of these people are different, a friend of mine has recently told me he is Minimalist, as he has only Rolex Day Date but many!
Minimalism and miser is slightly different, I had seen a rich guy who earns US$900,000  a year keep wearing the same winter jacket for the past years, every time when temperature drops to 12 Deg C or below, I can see that jacket!
Buddha is typical a minimalism, in the end, only three things matter. How much you loved. How gently you lived and how gracefully you let go of things not meant to you.
Well, to make it short: Minimalism has allowed minimalists to pursue purpose-driven lives.
So Being a Rolex Lover, can I be a Minimalist?
Yes under limited budget, why not narrow down your collection on just one particular model you like most.
As if you buy everything, you may be Jack of all trades, master of none.
