I use mainly monocle mode also. I have 12 tags (1..12, mapped to F{1..12}) and I
hardly ever run more than 12 apps at once. I am hardcore minimalist and I tend
to throw away everything what is not needed. Also, since I understood suckless
motion, I replace many apps for less-sucking alternatives. Like Geeqie->qiv,
Thunar->xterm, openoffice->google docs, and so on.. Few months ago I set my
$HOME as read only and removed dotfiles and dotdirs what I didn't create myself
or explicitly want. Many apps showed their true nature.

Summary: Since I accepted suckless approach, my zen level has increased.
