I don’t know about you, but I’m always curious to find out the secret essentials behind the folks that inspire me. Before now, the only ways to find out exactly what those essentials are would be to befriend your idols (good luck with that) or to break into their house in the middle of the night and find them for yourself (which I don’t advise).

That’s what’s so awesome about minimums, a new website where masters of all trades explain a handful of items that are most valuable to them. Some are a simple as childhood mementos, while others cool pieces of technology that’ll give you a leg up on the competitions. Best of all, they give you links (when possible) so you can pick up all the cool toys yourself.

If nothing else, its a fun was to get to know a more personal side of the world’s big shakers.
