Less is more. You’ve heard it a million times. But what exactly does that look now that Americans have three times the amount of space they did 50 years ago? 

Sustainability specialist, green living guru and minimalist master Graham Hill is on a mission to redefine our concept of space. His company, LifeEdited, encourages people to ‘’live little,” thereby saving money, decreasing their environmental impact, and becoming happier in the process. 

In this TED Talk of the Week, Hill urges viewers to get rid of the unnecessary, optimize space, and create multifunctional homes (think a bed that pops out of the wall, fold-away office space, and an extendable coffee table). Take the next five minutes to learn a little bit about how to do more with less.
