There are a few systems I put in place to help me keep my life simple. Here are some that may help you:

  • A 30-day waiting list for purchases other than toothpaste, flour, vegetables, etc.
  • Don't get stuff for new hobbies
  • Talk to people about not giving you gifts
  • Be mindful of what you bring into your life
  • Be aware of marketing's impact on your desires
  • Regularly assess which possessions still serve a purpose or bring joy
  • Drastically limit the number of apps installed on any device
  • Turn on Aeroplane mode
