Summary of Episode 17:

MVQ means Minimum Viable Quantity. And this term refers to the minimum number that you need for a specific item. It requires total honesty with yourself to be able to determine the least number for you, because if not, you’ll buy things that end up as an unnecessary duplicate. (1:25)

Moreover, realize that buying more of the things we want doesn’t mean it will be more fulfilling. For this, the challenge is for us to determine that sweet spot where we experience that most joy. The point where having more tips us towards overconsumption and less satisfaction. (12:45)
