Living in a 500-square-foot apartment, I think about this quote a lot when making decisions about what to have in our house. For example, I own only one set of sheets, one set of towels, and one set of sneakers. But, I still have lots of space for things that have no purpose, just because I like them - like a big conch shell from our honeymoon and a picnic basket I bought at a flea market (which currently holds my scarves). Although I complain about living in a small space sometimes, it does force you to really think about what things you want to own.
