Simplify Your Life

Due to my husband’s illness, we sold our house and most of the contents in 2012. Now I’m on my own, living a simple life in a small space. I’m grateful to have wonderful memories of our 30-year marriage, none of which require a room full of furniture or collection of bric-a-brac. (Thank goodness, as I would rather write or travel than dust.)

Here are the resources that have made the most difference to me in simplifying, downsizing, and creating a minimalist life:


Simplify Your Life – by Elaine St James
Simple Abundance – by Sarah Ban Breathnach
The Joy of Less – by Francine Jay


Miss Minimalist – Francine Jay (There’s treasure in the archives! My favorite: Philosophy)
Zen Habits – Leo Babauta
Becoming Minimalist – Joshua Becker (Joshua’s bestseller, The More of Less, is on my To-Be-Read list!)
