I Want to Simplify My Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 123 People

    I began a journey to simplify my life.

    Boy has it been difficult. The best advice I can give is this: Step 1: Find out what is important to you (top 5 things) Step 2: Eliminate everything else. Step 3: When anything new comes along, ask yourself, will this simplify my life or complicate it?

    In Case Anything Happens

    I have too much stuff. With several folks I know in the hospital recently, I have been thinking about what my family will be left with if anything happened to me. This is a great motivator to downsize. I expect to get busy while my family is out of town for the holiday. I...
