  1. “He who will not economize will have to agonize.” – Confucius
  2. Only have what you need AND what you love.
  3. Be one of those generous souls who love to share.
  4. “Saving a little of the past is fine but life has a way of twisting and changing and the less stuff you have blocking your way the freer you are to live in the now and explore the possibilities of the future.” – Colleen Madsen, 365 Less Things – Out of sight out of mind
  5. Everything you own has a lifetime. If you will absolutely have to replace an old item, start saving for the new replacement right now. For example, save for your next car starting now.
  6. “Growth is not a result of choosing ‘more’ for our lives, but choosing ‘better.’” – Joshua Becker, Becoming Minimalist – Not More, Better
  7. “Fighting about decluttering is just as damaging as fighting about clutter.” – Courtney Carver, Be More With Less – The Truth about Simplicity
  8. Simplicity is not about suffering, it is all about searching for what is most important.
  9. Every time you let go of something, you create room for better experiences.
  10. When you stop living a meaningful life, fulfillment comes to an end.

    Great list of tips, Mohamed! My favorite is: Every time you let go of something, you create room for better experiences. I always feels refreshed when I let some object go. Over time, I remember experiences much more than objects. So I need lots of room for new experiences!

      It is very interesting how refreshment is the common feeling when you let go of unnecessary stuff. I keep wondering why people work very hard to accumulate more stuff than they really need.
