9I Revisiting Voluntary Disposition Through Consumer Journeys

We examine consumers’ disposition journeys. A netnography of consumer narratives from Facebook groups, advocating minimalism, reveal the barriers facing consumer's decluttering efforts. Consumers experience despair as well as action paralysis when failing to declutter. Conversely, those who are successful in their efforts experience elation and appreciate their more streamlined lives.
