Your Shit, My Stuff, Goldilocks, and Making the Bed You Sleep In. If we paid more attention to fit, access, and steadfastness in the things we buy maybe we’d all be a bit happier with less. Bonus is Frank Chimero’s awesome definition of freedom:
What I mean by freedom is the ability to say no. I don’t consider this a negative way of thinking, but rather a very positive way to have permission to opt out of the things we don’t want to do. I feel we need to acknowledge the value of the freedom derived from simplifying and eliminating the useless things in our life. This means having an understanding of what’s important.
An absolutely wonderful post.
