How Many Pants Should I Own & Other Weird Minimalism Questions

I still remember the day I saw a fellow minimalist Instagrammer bring up the question of how many pairs of pants people should own. I chuckled to myself because this was a question I too had gotten so often from people. “How many pairs of pants should I own?” While this question makes me smile a little, the truth is, I had similar questions when I was first starting minimalism which is why I thought it might be time to drop some straight forward answers to some of the weirdest questions I have been asked as a minimalist.
