KØB IKKE MERE OPBEVARINGSPLADS. Det er svindel og humbug. Det giver ikke mere plads. Men optager mere plads. Giver mere trang til at købe mere, tror jeg. For nu har man jo mere plads til at fylde i.
En viktig påminnelse fra Fru Langsom på Slow Living.

If the answer is “money,” then it might be time to evaluate what you can do to reduce the way money seems to be running your life.

Fra The Everyday Minimalist.
