Social media often paints an unrealistic picture of perfection in life. But not everyone falls for the standards set by the virtual world. All that matters in life is how happy and content we are rather than how expensive our lifestyle is. To emphasize this point, Bradley—who goes by Bradley on a Budget on TikTok—shared a video on how their minimalist life lifestyle brings them fulfillment. With nearly 2.5 million views, this video shared a powerful message that resonated with many on the internet.

In a world that has or aims to have a modular kitchen, Bradley loves having a simple, modest kitchen that works out for their needs. No fancy flooring, cabinets, or kitchen ranges in sight - just an old, humble interior. "My outdated kitchen still keeps me fed," mentioned Bradley in the text overlay. Cut to the next clip, Bradley pointed out how even worn-out shoes still do the job of protecting their feet. They don't care about how new or expensive their shoes are but simply want them to serve their purpose. Bradley's shabby-looking water bottle might seem to be imperfect by the standards of social media but that didn't stop them from using it. "My untrendy water bottle still keeps my water cold," they said.

Walking carefree with the old wired type earphones, Bradley felt no hesitation in flaunting their choices. "My outdated headphones still bring me the songs I love," the text overlay read. In fact, Bradley loved donning their outdated clothes which were mostly from their college times 8 years ago and the best part was that they were still fitting well and in good condition. Finally, the content creator ended with a message that said, "A grateful and minimal life is a beautiful one." Also, in the video's caption, Bradley mentioned, "No I don't need to 'treat myself.' I am grateful and content with what I have and don’t desire to replace things that are completely fine to impress others."

The popular video garnered over 4000 comments with most people highlighting the harsh realities of the "perfect" life hyped up by social media. "THIS!!!! Electrical cars or the latest phones are not going to fix the world. But our stance against hyper-consumerism might go a long way though!" commented @edwin_spie_onelove. When @sothatguyjohn wrote, "I actually like kitchens like that. It reminds me of those warm cooked meals grandmas make," Bradley agreed with it saying, "Yeah I actually like older style things. It feels more special in the age of modern and high-tech everything." @cesiah9632 pointed out, "I feel like TikTok has brainwashed a lot of us that we need to have an 'influencer' life. I’m happy with my humble living."

Bradley's love for a minimalistic life was also showcased in another video where they can be seen driving a very old car. The text overlay read, "The biggest flex isn't driving the newest car. It's driving a paid-off car." Also in the captions, Bradley mentioned, "I love my 16-year-old car with basic features and 108K miles on it." With just a few simple words, the budget life enthusiast made a strong statement that everyone should think about.
