Five years ago, I moved halfway across the country. I decided not to ship anything, so I had to squeeze everything I owned into a 2000 Corolla. The only leftover stuff I didn't give away were some books and DVD’s that I left at my parents’ house. (Nope – I haven't read them since.)

I have more now, mostly tools and furniture, but I could still fit everything I own into a tiny 300 square foot apartment. It’s really true: less stuff makes you more happy.

Most of us have more than we think, but we spend constantly to buy small things. What resources could we free up by giving up just one of those things? 

This is a response to a read-worthy blog post titled Less Is More.
