'Compacting' explained

'Compacting' explained: Happiness Tips Weekly
'Compacting' explained: Happiness Tips Weekly

Buying things takes away your feeling of need, but only for a short time. It's better to resist the feeling than to encourage it by buying more. Try compacting instead. This video explains what compacting is, and suggests ways to do it. Chris explains how buying things costs you more than money— it takes time and energy, too, so the benefits of compacting are more time, more money, and a more enjoyable living environment, as well as rediscovering some old items and activities.
