I feel that my life, perhaps many others as well, could be simpler and this is where I begin where to map out how to do that in an effort to help myself and others. Feel free to add your own section below and layout your plans and ideas for consolidating your life. Use the discussion tab for comments, suggestions, and complaints please.



  • reasonably comfortable
  • non-isolating
  • simple within modern constructs


  • Have a clearly defined home.
    • A place to keep my non-portable stuff.
      • Tangible and non-tangible.
    • Sleep most of the time.
    • Relax in privacy.
  • Define core necessities for maintaining level of comfort.
  • Everything else can be lost/stolen, given away, or placed in a collaborative shared use space(ie. The Shop)


  • Easier to pack for moving when it comes time to do so.
  • Gives one more room to do things with.
