It’s the weekend, which for most of us is the time of the week when we have more leisure time on our hands and (if we are lucky) money in our pockets and many of us celebrate this fact by hitting the shops and buying more STUFF.
Writer and designer Graham Hill questions whether this is a route to happiness and in this TED talk he asks: Can having less stuff, in less room, lead to more happiness?
He makes the case for taking up less space, and lays out three rules for editing your life. He has set up a website called LifeEdited which explores this idea further. So before you hit the shops this weekend take a few minutes to watch his fascinating video and explore his website and decide for yourself whether you think he has a valid argument.
