Make a careful inventory of needs, and begin to make sacrifices of your wants. Be more generous in sharing resources to lessen our impact on the earth. This shouldn't be hard if you live in a small house, because you don't have a lot of space to keep things. However, it is a little harder for those of us who have space. Share with those in need as well, they will be thankful. The less stuff you have the less clutter in your life, and the happier you will be.
