    If I'm remembering correctly, it was voluntary simplicity that got me to read YMOYL. I'm still striving for more simplicity - both out of necessity and voluntarily. lol

    For me, like several others here, it was the idea that I'm using life energy in exchange for being able to purchase things. THe first thing I cut from my expenditures of life energy once I figured that out was lunch out when I was at the office. I didn't enjoy it and it was mostly just laziness/lack of planning, that necessitated it. Now on those rare times that I do have to buy my lunch I hate spending the money. From a life energy standpoint it's only about 12 minutes of time, compared to 25 minutes of my time when I made that change, but I still prefer to bring lunch and save that life energy towards a future where I don't have to work.
