"Less is more" hoặc "more is less" nghĩa là đơn giản là nhất, đôi khi cái gì đó được sử dụng với số lượng ít thì đem lại nhiều lợi ích hơn khi dùng nhiều. Đây cũng xu hướng sống tối giản phổ biến.

Ví dụ
“If you get a ticket, great, go see it,” de Blasio said of the tree. “But I'm going to say it again, it's just not like holidays we've gone through before. Let's get through 2020, let's turn the page. In 2021, we can all get back there to celebrate the tree the right way. But this year is ‘less is more.’”

The nationwide COVID-19 pandemic threatens to transform any sizable gathering into a super-spreader event, so the best advice for Thanksgiving 2020 is to celebrate at home with the people you live with. Dr. Colin Greene, director of the Lord Fairfax Health District, puts it this way: “Smaller is better, less is more.”

Happily, the digitalization (số hóa) of our daily lives has enabled more sustainable movements (phong trào bền vững) to flourish: from low waste to slow fashion to the sharing economy (renting a dreamy dress for a special event is now as normal as the way we used to view shopping new), 'less is more' has never felt truer.

Choosing the best gifts for minimalists (người theo chủ nghĩa tối giản) can prove surprisingly difficult. After all, any streamlined enthusiast (đam mê sắp xếp hợp lý) will tell you that less is indeed more, but what exactly does that mean in the present giving season, when so many cadeaux (quà tặng) will be dismissed as simply superfluous (thừa)?
