Cult of Less
Sutton founded the website, Cult of Less as a way to "unclutter his life." The site listed all of Sutton's possessions and past belongings. He became a known figure among "digital minimalists" (people who replace physical media, such as DVDs and books, with digital media, such as streaming services). Sutton claimed in 2010 to live out of two suitcases and two boxes. On his personal website, Sutton in 2013 called the Cult of Less a "past exploit" and in 2016 noted that he had "a girlfriend and a waffle iron, so we can all agree that project is likely over."
Sutton was featured in the lifehacking documentary, You 2.0,.
