"A few years ago, I remember sitting on the floor in tears wishing my house would burn down so that I would lose all of my "stuff", and finally be free from the burden of it.
Minimal living can be hard, but it doesn't have to be. As cheesy as it may sound, I have become a devout believer in the phrase "less is more." Less of what? STUFF. More of what? Happiness, time, intimacy, family, TRAVEL, and over-all satisfaction."
