In this episode of The Minimalists Podcast, Joshua and Ryan talk about so-called luxury items—desiring them, purchasing them, clinging to them, understanding them, and letting go of them—and they answer the following questions:

  • How do you define “luxury item”?
  • How do we differentiate between luxury, elegance, and trendy?
  • As my fiance and I are creating our wedding registry, how do we ensure we don’t fall into the trap of exploiting the kindness of others for luxury items that will just fill the areas we just decluttered?
  • What is “expensive pain”?
  • What is an “alternative registry”?
  • Is crowdsourcing a reasonable way to fund a honeymoon?
  • Why do some pursue luxury instead of living within their means?
  • What is “low-grade misery”?
  • What is the ultimate luxury?
