Minimal Inspiration: Need to Want Less Design

As a big fan of minimal design, I always find myself collecting and bookmarking websites that talk about minimalism. I found this cool, funny and inspiring minimal illustrations from Erin Hanson few weeks ago.

Needs are the essentials, the basics of life that we cannot live without whereas wants are items, activities, or services that increase one's quality of life. These items can be wasteful if your income is limited. In this simple concept, it reminds us about what's important in our life comparing it with what we want. I reckon these illustrations are reflecting Erin's needs and wants, so some of them don't really make sense to all of us.
