No More Texts

Three years ago, The Minimalists signed up for a text-messaging service that would allow us to interact one-on-one with our audience. This service was great! Ryan and I were able to send weekly Minimal Maxims, answer personal questions, and provide support to people struggling to heal their relationship with stuff.

Unfortunately, this experiment is coming to an end. The service provider, Community, decided that, at our current usage (we have a large audience), our monthly rate would increase from $250 to nearly $2,000. Since we don’t think it’s prudent to spend $20,000+ each year to send text messages, we’re letting it go.

Ergo, tomorrow, October 31, 2022, is our last day using this texting service. If you’d like to continue to receive updates and weekly Minimal Maxims from The Minimalists, you can sign up for our free newsletter (we’ll never email spam, junk, or ads).

By the way, there are still plenty of ways to interact with The Minimalists:

Big thanks to everyone who participated in this texting experiment with us. It’s been a blast. We’re grateful for the opportunity to add value to your life.


P.S. We’ve been assured by Community, in writing, that they will never give your phone number or personal data to anyone.
