I've had the link to this video on my desktop for months, waiting for a good time to post it here. Not that the "why less stuff is better" shtick is news to any of the five people reading this, but it's a good video with coherent explanations (I thought). Maybe one of the five people reading this know someone who could benefit from a viewing:

The Story of Stuff

Of course, in my quest to minimize stuff and reduce waste, I did just buy an actual plastic waste bin for the bathroom. And storage bins for Caitlyn's enormous collection of project/craft supplies. And I spent a moment thinking about airtight storage bins for 25 pounds of rice. Is it possible to get emergency water storage containers that aren't plastic? So, I'm not sure that I'm exactly succeeding in my quest for less stuff. I'm not sure that I'm satisfied just being lower than the average American in my stuff-addiction. I guess everyone needs a goal...
