Oprah's What Can You Live Without Experiment?

Original Airdate: March 2, 2009

In the wake of Suze Orman's challenge to go without certain things -- like spending money, using credit cards, and eating at restaurants -- Oprah challenges two families to go without for seven days, then talks to them to see how they did. Oprah also talks to Mary Carlomagno, author of "Secrets of Simplicity," about how making small changes can yield big differences in the quality of your life. Oprah also shares the story of Kristen Martini, who decided to remove all the unnecessary stuff from her life in order to add meaning to it.
