Simple Living | Weekend Reading

We can live a simple life.  I am trying something new, here on my blog.  Every month or maybe more often I am going to share inspiring information on living a simple life.

Simple living is trying to be content with what I have rather than searching for the next best thing, but it can be so much more.  Living simply can apply to; being more minimal, having a good work/life balance, reducing stress, pretty much uncomplicating life.

It can be easy to get caught up in the race for the next best thing; whether that is an outfit or something for your home.  After we were done decluttering our home I started to search for other ways to simplify.  These articles will have you rethinking how you spend your time and money.

I hope you find these articles interesting and inspiring.

    Shannon, thanks for sharing your thoughts about simple living. Your videos are inspiring! I hope you and your family are OK – so much fire and smoke…. (I’m in Washington, by the way, and visibility here is about zero.)

      Thank you! We are ok, the fire is close to us, but we are not in danger. Yes it is impossible to see here with all the smoke and ash, I hope you are safe.
