I LOVE THAT ...

I love that it's 8AM and my last load of laundry is in the dryer and the rest is folded and away. Where before, we had an overflow of clothes.

I love that last night, I did the bills in under ten minutes, and that everything is housed in a single sunshine yellow envelope. Where before, I had boxes of saved bills, receipts and budget charts.

I love that, of the 80 percent of personal belongings that were removed from this house, that I miss none of it.

I love that in a few hours, Tim will be home early.

    1. That's the funny thing, with such less stuff, the organized takes care of itself.

      Heaven, I say, heaven.

    1. That's the thing, with so little items, the organization just takes care of itself.

  10. I am late coming by but I bet you're still excited with all this simple living. I love it. We have done A LOT of cleaning up, too, but still not where I really want to be. But I'm working on it. I can really relate to the freedom you are experiencing! Okay, time for popcorn and some TV...nite nite...

    1. I'm new to your blog and I look forward to reading you again next weekend. You're a great writing. A natural, even.

      What was the toughest item/items for you to part with, if any?

  14. Wow i'm so impressed Whiski oh and your heading reminds me so much of my German Sheppard Benny, he died of old age a long time ago and came to see me in a dream to tell me how happy he was yes whiski dogs do go to heaven and cats and all animals soon I will open a new blog when where I will sell stuff, great books, magazines, history books, mostly on the Holocaust, and all sort of interesting stuff and beautiful beads, I'll do it through blogging because I won't charge much but I will ask for Canadian cash, well one day I'll sell my life story so you know why, I'll cost 2 dollars Canadian. See you soon, I haven't done anything yet..I'm trying it slow...

      Congrats on soon getting your stuff ready to sell. Great way to downsize and make a few bucks.
