January is the month of New Year's resolutions, setting goals, and getting refocused.No. 1
Less is More.
I think it is actually fun to buy new things and to look for other pieces to add to my closet, bookshelf, wall, or pantry. However, each and every time I add one more thing to my home, I have come to the realization that I am adding another thing to my life that I will actually need to maintain.
While I am thick in the middle of having my home packed out for an overseas move, I am convinced that it might be beneficial to move every two years - just to keep the excess under control! It seems that I keep filling one more garbage sack or moving another load to the recycling can. It is taking so much of my time and energy. And, I pride myself in being someone who purges often! (Keep this in mind as you put away Christmas and start to see Valentine decorations in all of the stores.)
So, how do you live with less?
Only keep what you actually NEED.
Question each and every purchase.
Say 'No' when you need to, without excuse.
Regularly purge your home.
See if you can scale back on what you own.
Follow the one in one out rule!
