Welcome to my Furniture-free Minimalist apartment tour! This is Youheum and thanks for joining me today my friends. I live in Austin, TX with my cat and my also minimalist sister in a 1 bedroom. I currently live without any furniture and I practice is a Sustainable Minimalist lifestyle. Here’s my cat for Boru hanging out on her perch 🙂 The mantel above the fireplace is serving as a bit of an altar for prayers and gratitude practice. I keep my mugwort smudge stick, Palo Santo, and a singing bow that I use in the morning for prayers. Instead of using a sofa, I use a jute rug. I also have plenty of straw cushions and buckwheat zafus. I don’t have to always sit on the ground. Most of the guests use this foldable paper stool. It’s completely collapsible and very space-saving and the awesome part is that it’s made of 100% recycled paper. This is my seed starting area near the window for growing my own greens. I plant these out in my local community garden when the time is right. The growing season is coming so I currently have some hardy veggies like zucchini, mustards, kale, tomato, eggplant, and a bunch of peppers. This is broccoli sprouts that I started about two weeks ago and it’s already grown this much. I also have some cat grass for my cat. I’ve been working from home for a long time. I’m on the computer a lot and I’m always sitting on the ground. So I need my movement gears for practicing yoga and doing gentle stretching throughout the day. Now on to my favorite place the kitchen area. I practice Zero-waste and Plastic-free wherever I can to minimize my waste and consumption. The pantry closet is where we keep a week’s worth of fruits because we’re both on a mostly Fruitarian and Raw Vegan diet. This is the cabinet and I keep the inside simple by just removing most of the distracting product labels and keeping it minimal. These are all the plates bowls and the cups that we own. No plastic cups or bowls and it’s mostly made of ceramic or wood. This is the inside of my fridge. It’s organized with glass bowls. I don’t use single-use plastic wraps or bags. I filter the water with a Berkey filter to remove all the harsh chemicals like fluoride, chlorine, and pesticide. These are the utensils I share with my sister. It’s made of mostly wooden materials. I keep my Zero-waste baggie and my handmade dishcloth in the next drawer. I try to compost whenever I can by taking it to the community garden. But because I live in our apartment there is no compost service in this unit. So I’m trying to figure out what’s the best way to deal with food waste and scraps. I don’t use any chemical detergent or cleaning products at home. I use a diluted vinegar solution or a simple soap bar for almost anything. I just use this hemp scrubby that I made to do the dishes. We don’t have a dining table or a chair to sit down while we’re eating. I do most of my work and eating on the floor in the lounge area. Onto my not a bedroom bedroom! It’s actually a dining area. It’s next to the kitchen and it’s been converted into my personal space. I also use it as just a spot to chill to sketch and read my ebook. This is my minimal closet, I have a capsule wardrobe of 15 clothes and I own 2 shoes. The shoes are actually kept in the entrance area. These are the two shoes that I have. One zero drop sandal that I made with paracord and a barefoot Minimalist sneaker. Now on to the bathroom. The laundry room is actually inside the bathroom, but we don’t have any washer or dryer. We use it as storage to keep my bike gear and the outdoor gears on the top shelf. The sink area is kept minimal without distractions. So I just have my soap, bamboo toothbrush, and homemade tooth powder. This is the cabinet above the sink and there’s nothing in there. The drawers underneath contain my hairbrush and body brush. The other side has my Scrubba which is like a dry bag for doing laundry by hand. I use it mostly for small batches like clothing rags and sometimes my towels. I have my chlorine filter on the showerhead to filter out all the harsh chemicals. The shelf area is also pretty simple. I just have my essential oil collection and some recycled TP on the bottom. My bathroom is also kept natural and Toxic-free. I often use candles and smudging to cleanse the air without using any kind of chemical sprays. For me, it’s really important to try my best to keep my home minimal and sustainable at the same time. That’s a full tour of my Furniture-free Minimalist apartment. I hope you enjoyed it.
