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.

Joshua, if you’re reading this, I just want to thank you for including a link to my piece “Declutter Your Fantasy Self,” published on No Sidebar a few weeks ago, and also for tweeting about my piece “Help Your Children Enjoy a Minimalist Holiday,” which was published on No Sidebar yesterday. I’m excited that you have recommended my work! I feel so encouraged.

A couple I read about were selling their house and nearly everything in it to move into an RV to go exploring this great country. They invited friends and neighbors to come take whatever they wanted. They put a donation box by the door labeled “gas money”. No one was required to donate and the sellers didn’t want to know how much anyone was putting in the box. Everyone went away happy.
