Follow these five principles to simplify your possessions:

Eliminate Non-Essentials

This includes anything that isn’t vital to your spiritual, mental, emotional or physical well-being.

Only Add Essentials

Don’t accumulate stuff that is non-essential.

Focus on Valuable Things

Spend most of your time and money on the things that add the most value to your life.

Learn the True Value of Possessions

Value is determined by:

  1. How often you draw on a resource
  2. The degree to which a resource contributes to your well-being.

Value has nothing to do with how much things cost.


  1. Make things serve more purposes
  2. Make things serve more people
