  1. The things we own end up owning us.
  2. We all buy too much shit
  3. Most of it we rarely use
  4. Some of it we never use
  5. We buy this crap and then we store it. And then we brag about how much stuff we have.
  6. But honestly that just turns us into stuff babysitters. Good job. Really.
  7. Americans spend $22 Billion on storage every year.
  8. More than 7.5 sq ft of storage space per person in the US
  9. Most of this crap we could just borrow from a friend. I’m not saying don’t spend money. I’m saying think more about what you are spending your money on.
  10. The one who dies with the most toys wins?
  11. Bullshit.
  12. The one who dies with the most experiences wins.
  13. WTF experiences? •Go places •See things •Try new stuff •Have dinner with friends •Ride your bike •Fuck the same old shit and your lame comfort levels

  16. “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” - Dr. Ferris Bueller, Esq
  17. Modern technology helps
  18. So what are you waiting for? You only get one shot at life. Are you doing it right?
  19. I’m trying to start a REVOLUTION
  20. Neo-minimalistic über connected travel addicts thetechnomads.net
