What is the best lightweight CSS toolkit to start a project with?

Something not as bloated as Bootstrap or Foundation

    This let's you build your own components using functional CSS rather than just using an off the shelf component. It also has a library of components that you can grab.

    A lot of great components and already familiar to a lot of users! However, maybe this is not "lightweight" enough for you... Check it out!

    Skeleton 2.0

    A dead simple, responsive CSS boilerplate.

    Skeleton is a lightweight CSS package that has around 400 lines total and built with mobile in mind.

    Material Design Lite may work for your needs. @addyosmani did a great job stripping the library down to the bare minimum.

    A lot lighter than Bootstrap, yet has a lot of the features you'd expect to find and use in Bootstrap (Grids, Cards, Navigation etc.). Responsive, mobile-optimized and easily customizable, as well as very well-documented, I'd suggest you give it a try!
