On this week’s Saturday Listly, I thought I’d take a look at some resources to help us live well with less…sometimes much less!
I’ve been thinking a lot about downsizing lately—not that we have imminent plans to move into smaller digs, but I do have an ongoing (though somewhat intermittent) project that involves divesting ourselves of a lot of the stuff we’ve acquired over the years.
Getting rid of stuff is one half of the equation, but the other half is making do with less, and that’s where this list comes in. Each of the items has to do with living well with less, whether it’s less space, less stuff, or just less new stuff.
As well, I’ve gathered up some ideas for recycling, salvaging, mending, and generally taking better care of the stuff we do have.
I’d love to hear your ideas on the subject—after all, when you moved to London, you found yourself in a much smaller space, right? You can vote these posts up or down in the list, add your own comments, or add links to other resources…it’s all fair game here!
Hope you have fun, and let me know what you think!
