Follow along on my journey toward simple living
I’ve been putting off this closet thing for a long time. It’s easy to ignore an area of clutter and mayhem when you can just close a door so easily. But organizing your closet really strikes at the heart of what I view as practical minimalist living. I wish I had started here first. But as I said, it’s so easy to hide. Out of sight, out of mind.

This cycle has happened enough in my life to indicate a pattern. I suspect it’s a pattern that many people fall into. Or…maybe I just hope I’m not alone.
When I started this blog last year, it was with the intention of documenting my efforts to have more with less. I’m still carrying around more stuff than I need, but I’m also still pushing it out of my life…a work in progress. During this process, I’ve been affected in more ways than just having fewer unnecessary things.

This isn’t a music review site, but if you have trouble connecting with your kids through their music choices, maybe these selections can begin to bridge the gap. And if nothing else, they have some thought-provoking messages in them about consumerism and a life focused on things more important than the clothes you wear or what you own.
