simplify.

on sundays d and i typically go to the library.
i notice that each week, i sort of gather books along a theme.
this week i got these two books.
can you tell what's on my mind?
the 100 thing challenge:about a guy who got rid of all but 100 of his personal possessions.
not buying it: about a woman and her partner, who decide to buy nothing but the essentials for one year.
think you could do either?
i'm feeling inspired.

  2. Have you read Barbara Kingsolver's "Animal, Vegetable and Miracle"? I think it could almost fit in your theme but dealing with what we eat. It's an amazing book and changed my life. I curious to see where your new books lead you...

  3. yes, i have heather...thanks.
    d and i would love to get our garden going here and raise some chickens, maybe one day have a homestead, etc.
    the introduction to 'the world in your kitchen' cookbook is what changed our eating to vegetarian.

  4. Thanks for sharing these books...I think I should go grab them because these topics have been heavy on my mind ever since I was pregnant with Olivia! I'm gearing up to have a garage sale and got rid of a bunch of clothes, etc., but I'm still feeling overwhelmed by what I still have :( It's also time to leave behind my "Shop-a-holic" days and simplify/start saving. It doesn't help that I have "First-Time-Mother Syndrome" where I tend to get a bunch of unnecessary things that I THINK I might need. ;) I'm starting to learn about what I can do without, AND I'm also learning to accept hand-me-downs from friends...not EVERYTHING has to be new!
