There’s more to life than buying stuff.
There are many wonderful people pursuing and promoting simplicity. Fortunately, some of them are gifted in communication and choose to encourage and inspire us with their words. I enjoy reading their unique perspective. I’m sure you will too.
So fix yourself a nice warm cup of coffee or tea on this beautiful weekend. Find a quiet moment. And enjoy some encouraging words about finding more simplicity in your life today.
The Difference Between Decluttering and Minimalism | No Sidebar by Sarah Anne Hayes.It seems that one can declutter their home or life without becoming a minimalist, but one can rarely be a minimalist—and certainly not become one—without first going through the process of decluttering.

I often read and then go back and read these articles numerous times. I can not be more appreciative that I am. I have no problem with giving away re-usable items but pictures and newspaper clippings are the most difficult. When the photos are others I generally put them in a card and send them on their way. No issue.
I read something ” what will your children do with this stuff?” Having been around many situation- very commonly -they trash the items rapidly so why am I not like that? Having done genealogy I am passing on things to the next generation. My never ending book on this is in no way completed. Thank you for providing that understanding as this is why more and more read what is out there and join your effort.
Thank you for putting this list together! It is as though a good friend has handed you a pile of short read library books and the gentle reminder to slow down. My favorite find was Hands Free Mama. I appreciate these posts.
Enjoyed the Hands Free Momma article. My wife is a hospice nurse and her cat, Einstein, used to be a therapy cat. We are love, indeed. And as Mother Teresa said, “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”

I love these, thank you so much! really opened my mind, this is the kind of stuff that I focus on in my blog, personal development and such. And decluttering and being more minimal, whether or not i ever become a minimalist, i do believe i should have “less” in my life and that i would relieve a lot of stresses in my life. so thank you! :)

Thanks for the articles this week.
I try to makes Sundays my digital day off. Also, working on turning the devices off after supper. It does help to relax and to get needed things done. The Hands Free Mama article will touch your heart.
Love this collection of articles! Thanks for putting it together! We have 4 children and I find it incredibly difficult to keep the junk out of the home. We have a LONG way to go until we can call ourselves minimalists, but we’re getting there, slowly but surely.
I find a lot of it is in my mind…letting go of the fear that I won’t have something..the more I get rid of, the more free I feel.

I have so grown to love these Articles you send me! I have learned to not be so “Busy” in my life and stop and read and research information. I am in Real Estate, and I am super busy with work, but you have made me stop and take time out of my life, to know what is important.
I saw you in Portland Oregon at a book signing, Joshua, and I have grown to love you and your books!! I am learning and practicing becoming more of a Minimalist in my life, wow, how it has changed my thinking on what is important.
Thank you for becoming a part of my life…
