With the holidays around the corner, shopping season is here! It's that time of the year again where it is acceptable to shop until you drop. But isn’t the essence of the holidays to celebrate life and be thankful for your loved ones?

In a society where accumulating goods is a celebrated act, the minimalist lifestyle has gone viral amongst millennials.
