Fill your life with stories to tell, not stuff to show.
The simplicity/minimalism movement is a beautiful community. And I enjoy any opportunity to promote writing that encourages people to live more by owning less.
So fix yourself a nice warm cup of coffee or tea. Find a quiet moment this weekend. And enjoy some encouraging words to inspire more simplicity in your life today.

Main reason for nitestand is a radio which plays most the night (soft music) also eye drops, nail files and small lamp. Storage units serve a purpose for temp. storage (remodeling, moving, etc) but a mngr told me that they have to run sales or call rescue mission, because someone quit paying rent , or the hiers didn’t want to go thru their junk, or family didn’t know dec. parent had a unit when estate was settled because payments were autopay from bank. Most stuff is not needed anyway, it’s usually older furniture or un used sporting gear, etc.
Thank you so much for your blog posts! As a recovering clutter-bug, I find what you share – and the way in which you share it – incredibly useful. I always look forward to your emails, and I love reading what you have to say, have signed up for your magazine, and am using your advice to make life better. I can’t wait to see what happens when I take your course. Thank you for doing what you do!
