I couldn't have said this better myself! Grahma Hill's talk for Ted.com really sums up the way I'm trying to lead my life. Pare everything down. There was a time when I bought recklessly and for the wrong reasons...but really, all that did was increase my bills and make me unhappy. How many $150 T-shirts does a guy really need?! After all, a cotton T is a cotton T! As long as I look like a million bucks in it, who cares if it's H&M or GUCCI. So, I do my best to live sparsely, be efficient and nimble.
Not to sound like some Pinko, but the way we are living our lives for the last few decades is going to be the end of us. More debt & more stress. What is the point of endless accumulation of useless stuff & the constant commericial consumption. Even in real estate, the idea you have to keep trading up to bigger and better house every few years is just not sustainable.
I'm not saying you all can live in the 420 sq ft pad featured in the video (although I would love to! so cool) but let's edit down our lives, our space or consumption. You'll be so much at peace...Trust me, I've been there!
