The main benefit you get from this minimalist lifestyle counting your stuff is that your stuff will be lightweight. Flexible. It allows you to work, travel, and have more options because you don’t have a bunch of stuff taking up mental energy and physical space. Having lots of stuff can be burdensome, mentally, physically, and financially.
Having less stuff allows you to do things that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to do.
