Cultivate finer tastes and discrimination in your choice of things. Get a right idea of values. Material possessions that you do not need and can not use are only a nuisance. Let your guiding rule be not how much but how good; quality over quantity.
A thing you do not want is expensive at any price. Set a regular time to review your things and eliminate all excesses. Avoid surpluses. Assimilate as you accumulate.
Choose things that express your own individuality. You must control your things or they will control you. Look for quality rather than quantity. Unnecessary possessions brings unnecessary care and responsibility.
Excess is wasteful. Don’t burden yourself with the unnecessary. Occasionally review your things and eliminate all that which is not vital.
