Off Topic: Less Stuff Makes You Happy

Not really on topic about finances specifically, but an interesting talk from Ted about footprint and possessions (and how much money you can save without that stuff).

I have this discussion with Michael James and other folks about how hoarding in general and the accumulation of stuff seems to be normal these days, when in fact maybe living in stark emptiness might be a better thing.

Writer and designer Graham Hill asks: Can having less stuff, in less room, lead to more happiness? He makes the case for taking up less space, and lays out three rules for editing your life.

I’d love to make room for MORE good stuff, that is for sure.
