How about:

Backup more often,
Buy no more than 1 Apple product per year,
Limit my iPhone apps to just 3 pages,
Spend more time doing than reading what others have done

I have tried it a few times. It seems better to me - cleaner and simpler. However I only use it for music, so not a power user.

I have also increased the RAM in my Macbook from 2G to 6G recently. However, I did notice an increase in case temperature. Perhaps the games I play on it don't stress the CPU.
