I will absolutely admit that the idea of switching to a "minimalist" lifestyle does have a strong appeal to me. I spent much of my life living in a home that had all sorts of chotchkies, dishes on display (two to three sets of "fancy" dishes, plus the "everyday" set in the cabinet!), lots of appliances on the counters, and a general sense of "clutter" by today's standards.
