Living with Less

simple houseI currently have several clients who are slimming down in preparation for hitting the market. No, they aren’t getting a divorce; they are going to sell their houses and are purging their houses and lives of needless clutter. The truth is that once you start it becomes an obsession that will make your life easier and more enjoyable (and make your house more attractive to potential buyers).

Graham Hill is the founder of LifeEdited.com. He makes a living on telling people how to live with less because he found that what he had consumed ended up consuming him.  Here are some inspirational quotes on paring down from LifeEdited.com:

  • Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. –William Morris

  • Art is the elimination of the unnecessary. –Pablo Picasso

  • Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. –Leonardo da Vinci

  • It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential. –Bruce Lee
