Owning Your Stuff

My wife and I developed a system to analyze our relationship with our possessions by sorting through everything we owned based on both emotional and rational utility. It has made an *enormous* difference in how we buy, use, and replace physical goods, and (we think) hugely improved our quality of life by getting rid of anything that doesn’t improve it.

We explain it all in the video below of a talk we gave at a NY Quantified Self Show a& Tell. Hulda also talks about another system she made for buying clothes based on seasonal usefulness, care-requirements, and compatibility with her other clothes.
