Stuffo­ca­tion: Liv­ing More with Less

James Wall­man

Esquire (Singapore) - - Mahb | Book -

Hav­ing too much stuff is a First World prob­lem that has led our phys­i­cal as­sets to be­come ‘un­count­able’ for stock­tak­ing. As ma­te­ri­al­ist val­ues thrive with record-break­ing con­sumerism prac­tices, Wall­man calls out hoard­ers who ac­quire need­less stuff that be­come a bur­den. The trend fore­caster praises and high­lights rebels who get rid of ex­cess be­long­ings without hes­i­ta­tion. There’s a golden rule Wall­man lives by: “We have to trans­form what we value. We have to fo­cus less on pos­ses­sions and more on ex­pe­ri­ences.”
