I’ve been doing it for a couple weeks now, and I plan to keep doing it for as long as it feels right. I think of it as my One-Bag Lifestyle — though it’s not for everyone, and it doesn’t make me better than anyone, I really like it.
To be clear, I have more things than fit in the bag: furniture, an iMac, tools, a handful of books that I can’t bear to get rid of (about 10 of them). But as for clothes and other personal items, I boxed up everything else and am pretty much only using what can fit in my 21-liter backpack.
I don’t expect anyone else to want to do this, but in case you’re interested, I thought I’d share more about what I’m doing and why.
