In the process of moving from a fairly large space to a much smaller one, I am beginning to discover the advantages of simplicity. It's so easy to accumulate more and more material possessions in the culture we live in which demands that we buy, buy, and then buy some more. I find that it is actually a struggle to fight the consumerist tide and not buy everything I want. I thought this piece on npr.com was particularly poignent which I came across around the same time I was searching the Container Store's website for –you guessed it– containers to store my baking supplies in. Only in America would there be a store that is entirely devoted to organizing and storing our stuff.
