Can We Live With Less?

While moving recently, I realized I have too much stuff. Way too much. And I suspect that such is the same for many people in the United States from admissions of friends and family to shows like Hoarders. The inforgraphic below highlights how we have expanded our abodes and the things we fill in our homes by almost 3 times over the last 60 years. Living with more is certainly a first world problem. But as we move forward to be green, sustainable, and efficient without being wasteful, living with less stuff is certainly a personal goal.

Do you have too much stuff? How do you plan to live with less?
