Less is More ~ 31 Days

Welcome to my 31 days series - 31 days of less is more. I'll be sharing my own journey down this path and some thoughts I have about why I think this is important. I've been on this journey for several years - slowly taking babysteps - and I find that it's a constant battle to keep the unnecessary stuff out of my home and life. But the battle gets easier to fight and it's a battle worth fighting!

  1. Can't wait to read!

    Here's mine: Simple Living

    1. I'll check yours out, too! Thanks for leaving the link.

  2. You have it so organized! I am just starting to transform my home - having retired I am clearing out a lot of stuff. Look forward to your series.

    1. Thanks - I hope you find it encouraging and helpful.

  3. Awesome! I just read through your Boot Camp series, so I'm excited about your 31 days series. We're downsizing next month, and I've been working on decluttering quite a bit. I totally understand about your sensitivity to work on cutting the clutter you control, and not nagging your husband. It's a tough balance! :-)

    1. Thanks, Shay. When I was mulling ideas over for this 31 days series I thought about doing the boot camp again. But I realized I needed something new. And writing through this series IS making me declutter along the way, so it's like boot camp revisited for me.

  4. I am in the middle of a clutter crisis.
    Won't you come over and hold my hand :-) ?
