Extremes rarely work, no matter the environment.
We could have bought a much larger and more expensive house. However, we bought one that was easy to clean in three hours. Cleaning to us is what most people call “Spring-cleaning” and we do it every two weeks with a light touchup in between.
Nearly everything in the house is functional, practically no clutter. We do have some backups stored, though. Things that are hard to find or would make our life difficult if we broke it, like the glass teapots and glass skillet.
Remember, what is extreme for some may not be extreme for you. You have to decide, though.
It should be a conscious decision and not by default.
