The Unencumbered Life

January 12, 2009


Sand Castle!, originally uploaded by fuzzirella.


When J. and I first started going green one of the things we realized is that we had way to much stuff.  We didn’t have enough for a McMansion but we were pretty close. We had two bedrooms sets, three kitchen tables, three couches, three chairs, a love seat, two sets of pans, three sets of dishes, four or five sets of glasses, and the lists goes on and on. 

There was no way for us to live a simple life with all that stuff around. Since January is a new year and many people resolve to cut the clutter, organize, downsize etc., I thought I would share how we downsized our lives and are happier for it.

    So true. We try to be pretty careful about something in-somthing out. But it sill seems to add up. Every year we try to make a round through everything and get rid of stuff others could use.

    When we spent a year not buying stuff we didn’t need, that really helped in our efforts to reduce clutter.
