12 YouTube Channels All Minimalists Will Love

12 Minimalist YouTubers

Whenever I’m searching for inspiration to downsize or declutter, I usually turn to YouTube. I love watching videos to learn more about how people incorporate minimalism into their lives because you get to visually see someone’s process, as well as get to know their personality more so than you would a blog post.

If you're wondering what minimalism is all about and need some inspiration to get started, here are 12 of the best minimalist YouTube channels that will inspire you to live lighter, consume less, and be more mindful!

To save you the time of trying to find good minimalism channels, I’m sharing twelve of my favorite YouTubers who, in some way, incorporate minimalism into their lives, whether it be in their closet, home, routine, or values. 

They may not necessarily market themselves as minimalists, but they all have something about them that I think minimalists will love. And if you’re ever wondering where I get inspiration, there’s a good chance it’s from these peeps!

So, if you a) need some inspiration to declutter your life, b) are starting your own journey into minimalism, or c) are just intrigued and want to learn more about what other people are doing, I highly recommend you subscribe to some of these channels!

12 Minimalist YouTube Channels

1 | Light By Coco

Coco is one of the people who inspired me to start my minimalism journey, and she’s probably the most popular minimalist on YouTube. She posts videos about decluttering, capsule wardrobes, and living with less, and her calm manner and level of maturity make you want to listen to her talk for hours. She also has an air of mystery about her that’s super intriguing. I love that she doesn’t try to preach about her ways, but rather shows step-by-step processes that anyone can follow to live a little lighter.

*unfortunately, Coco has closed her channel at this point.

2 | Lavendaire

Aileen has some amazing videos about creating your dream life and appreciating the little moments. She also posts quite a few videos about minimalism and gives great explanations of the different components of the KonMari method. She speaks in such a friendly, calming way and her pink/purple hair just makes her super cool in my eyes. If you’re looking for some motivation and ways to feel more content with your life, you gotta check this girl out.

Muchelle describes her channel as a place for anyone who is on a self growth journey to live a more intentional life.

Though her videos are not all about minimalism, I’m pretty sure any minimalist will love her calm vibes and intentionally thought-out content.

Her aesthetic and sense of style is totally goal-worthy, and I find I’m always inspired by her videos!

Cynthia shares her journey towards creating a sustainable closet and quitting fast fashion, and she posts videos about what she’s found at thrift stores and how she puts outfits together. What I love about her channel is that she’s always open about the mistakes she’s made with her closet, such as realizing that a capsule wardrobe isn’t for her, and I’m glad to see more people out there promoting sustainable clothing options.

8 | Trash is for Tossers

Lauren is doing incredible things in the world right now. Her blog and YouTube channel are about living a zero waste life, and she shares ways to make your own beauty products and practical tips for reducing your waste. She even started her own company, The Simply Co, which sells all-natural laundry detergent, and I just think she’s killin’ it at educating others about the impact of waste and how to become more conscious of what you throw away.

  1. great list, i follow alot of these people, have you checked out melissaalexandria01, rachel aust
    i am loving the simple living trend

    1. I did actually come across them while I was putting together this list, but didn’t have a good chance to watch them yet. Definitely adding them to my ‘to watch’ list!

  2. I’d never heard about the minimalist YouTube niche before today! It’s an interesting idea, definitely different from all the typical beauty or fashion YouTubers who just seem to be all about “this is what I bought, this is how I wore it”. I’ll have to check it out over the weekend!

    1. Yeah, it’s becoming more and more popular these days! And I agree, it’s a breath of fresh air from the usual videos – although some of the minimalist youtube videos can be very similar to one another so it takes a bit of searching to find creative/unique ones.

    1. Hi Anthony! Thanks so much for sharing your channel! I loved your vid about the benefits of decluttering. Coming home to a decluttered house is definitely a great feeling (although I always struggle to keep the kitchen tidy haha)

  3. Thank you for all the nice suggestions! I love love love “Light by Coco”, so inspiring! Like the Green Closet too. Used to be a fan of Daily Connoisseur, but she’s not really into minimalism, for she changes her entire wardrobe twice a year and pledges the need to be “chic” at all times. Living a simple life is not her thing.

  4. I am 51, divorced, and about to be an empty nester. I appreciate the channels you mentioned but so wish that there was one for the ~50 crowd. Thanks for your post.

    1. should totally be here!

      Side note, I personally find some of her videos boring, maybe she was considered one of the boring ones? Or she just didn’t get noticed?

  5. I love this! I watch so many of these youtubers! Trash is for tossers and My Green Closet were 2 of the 3 people that first started me on minimalism!

  6. Thank you for such great recommendations! I’m looking forward to learn more about minimalism and applying it to my life, and I’m happy to see there are quite a few minimalism-focused channels on YouTube.

  7. It’s a great list you compiled here and for the most part I like to live a minimalistic lifestyle as well. Not to the extent of living in a van haha, but for everything I buy, I try to sell things and I’m constantly reselling clothes that still look new and that I’ve worn only a few times on ebay. I’ve been using this app called Stylebook to document what I wear daily so I know which pieces I gravitate towards and which I don’t. It helps me make better decisions the next time I go shopping.

    I’ve just recently found Lavenderie’s YT channel and have been going through her videos. Like you, I also love her hair haha. Not sure if it’s the LA vibe, but I’m really digging the lavender hair, but really dislike the high-maintenance part of it.

  8. I just want to comment on this sentence: “…it can be somewhat difficult to find channels that aren’t completely hippie dippie, totally impractical, or downright boring.”

    Some people like ‘Hippie-dippie, so maybe you could have included one of those youtubers? And also, about the impractical part… Just because it seems impractical to you doesn’t make it impractical. It just means it won’t work for you. For example: some minimalists find a top of the line bed to be necessary. Me? I find that a sleeping bag alone does wonders for my back and is very portable and easy to vacuum under. Some minimalists sleep on a yoga mat. I think that’s kinda crazy, but is it impractical for them? Not at all :)

    I’m sorry, I actually really enjoy your blog so far, I just got a little nit-picky because this post seemed a bit less.. inclusive? I don’t know

    1. Hi again Alexx,

      You bring up some great points. Again, I did write this post last year so things have probably changed in the minimalist youtube community since I put this together. And you’re right – what’s practical for one person might not be for another – but I was just sharing ones based on the ones that had resonated with me and that I thought might interest my blog readers :)

  9. Rachel Aust also has a great channel. She’s created an awesome 30 day minimalism challenge, which I think really helps to get started the way of minimalism thinking in your head.

    1. I love Rachel. She’s beautiful and very level headed. She motivated me to do a through decluttering and get into meal preps to save time. I also love her style because I also am a sucker for black, lol.

  10. Thank you for these! May I suggest another channel? It’s called Jenny Mustard. I personally discovered her through Carly Cristman as she is kind of a minimalist herself. But Jenny and her husband identify as minimalists so I think her channel it’s definitely worth checking out.

  11. My favorite is actually Christine Kobzeff, her channel used to be about hair, nails and pink stuff, but in the last years she has goon trough a complete lifestyle change that promotes de-cluttering healthy living (now vegan) and traveling. Her minimalism videos are fantastic, and her voice and current aesthetic is so soothing. I think she got rid of 80% of her stuff, she also lives in Hawaii where she keeps butterflies and many succulents.

  12. Thanks for putting this list together. I just subscribed to those that jumped out at me as I read through your reviews. What a great compilation you put together!

  13. Thanks so much for this amazing list. I follow 8 out of the 12 already. I feel like you did a great job, and I can’t wait to check out the other 4!

  14. And where is More Melody (Melody Amber). She is absolutely amazing, high energy, charming woman. Very well organised, and a true minimalist.
