One in, one out.
However you do it, getting by with less is remarkably liberating. It doesn’t mean that every room in your house needs to be sparse. It doesn’t mean that you need to write shorter blog posts. It means that you approach every situation with the design philosophy of ‘enough and no more’.
Here’s three minimalist-related quotations that I live by. One day I’ll stencil them on my study wall:
Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. (William Morris)
The hardest thing is to take less when you can get more. (Kin Hubbard)
When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you. (Lao Tzu)
