The Minimalist Wallet Series: Joshua Becker of Becoming Minimalist

What is in Joshua Becker’s Bag

I only keep 4 items in my wallet:

  • Driver’s license
  • 1 personal credit card
  • 1 business credit card
  • 1 starbuck’s gift card (I am a blogger after all…).

Although there is a clip on the back, I rarely carry cash.

Receipts are removed and filed the day they are received. We use to track our spending and budget.

A little about Joshua Becker

My name is Joshua Becker. We are a family of four living in Essex, Vermont.  My wife and I are in our early-thirties.  My son is 8 and my daughter is 4.  We are a typical middle-class family (minus the dog).

After a conversation with my neighbor on Memorial Day 2008, we decided to become minimalist. This blog is about our journey. (You can read more about the start of our journeyhere.) This blog is about the joys and the struggles. It is written to inspire you to live with less. And find more life because of it.
