So I have this crazy desire to life a simple life, the hubby and I have talked about it and we agree that its something we would like to work towareds. However…nothing has changed…nothing.
Living simple can mean everything from living off the earth in a hut with no electricity or running water, to having only 333 personal items in your position at anyone time, to owning 3 houses and trying to cut out the excess. Simplicity is not the same for everyone, it can’t be and that is what makes it so complicated. We see great inspiration from those who do far more than we can and we start to doubt, judge ourselves and feel sad. We become overwhelmed with simplicity….crazy!
So instead I’ve decided to define what simplicity means for us:
- Cutting down on the amount of ‘stuff’ we have in our house.
- Keeping our loans to a minimum (currently student, mortgage and 1 car) and paying our bills in full each month.
- No acquiring more ‘stuff’just for the sake of buying things.
- Save money for experiences instead of things
