Being happy with less isn't about "giving up all of modern society's perks and running off to live in the woods". Instead, Roey B. argues, minimalism -- or living with less -- helps you come to term with the fact that collecting and storing so many items serves a false need instead of making us happier.

When I first moved to Tel Aviv I owned a car. Parking spots in Tel Aviv are a scarce resource. I had the worst since I lived in a neighborhood where most of the residents were families who owned at least one car. I bought a scooter instead (and later a motorbike), but even that got me feeling attached. Every time I wanted to go abroad for a long period, I had to ask a friend or my dad to take care of it, starting the engine twice a week and so forth.
Eventually I got rid of the engine two wheeler and started using public transport and the Tel Aviv hourly bicycles renting service to get around.
