the godfirst blog has a summary of part of richard foster teaching on simplicity in his book "celebration of discipline” - my summary of the summary is:
  1. buy things that are useful to you, not for status or extra features you won't use
  2. ask ‘is this thing going to add value to my life, or will it enslave me?’ 
  3. give things away, de-accumulate. 
  4. don't buy stuff just because it was on tv
  5. learn to enjoy things without owning them
  6. develop a deeper appreciation for god’s creation without the need for extras to do so
  7. don't buy-now, pay later
  8. reject stuff that is produced via oppression of  - or at the expense of - others
found via the simple pastor
