If one of your New Year’s resolutions this year is to live the simple life, take a tip from Andrew Hyde, a man who only owns 15 things. If you’re thinking that it’s not that difficult to pare down to fifteen items of stuff, chew on the fact that the average woman owns about 20 pairs of shoes alone. Hyde, a popular blogger, start-up founder and conference organizer sold most of his stuff back in 2010 and now travels from city to city – talk about packing light! To be fair, Hyde doesn’t include socks or undies in his count (frankly, we’re relieved) but we still applaud his extreme minimalism. Read on to see the 15 essential items Hyde can’t live without.
