Eight speakers battle it out at the festival's traditional closing event where the stakes are to go big or go (back to your adequately sized) home. The question at hand: Is more really merrier, or should we make Marie Kondo proud?

Everything is on the table including happy meals, muscles, social media followers, bank accounts, bubble teas, and BTOs… more or less ;) We’re sure there’s more to add, so maybe even upsize this list — or don’t! It’s time to decide if maximalist instincts pay off, or if it’s better to live a simpler, less fatigued life.
