Minimalist Mamas

I’ve become hooked on a blog called Becoming Minimalist , where she shares about her family’s journey toward simplifying life. She just had a guest post from Minimalist Moms on the practicalities of needing some essential stuff to succeed at modern motherhood. I’ve also been following Making This Home, and her personal experiences with trying to simplify.

These minimalist bloggers are inspiring me to take baby steps toward simplifying our lives further. They have lots of great tips, and the most important is just to start taking action. Voluntary simplicity isn’t just about being frugal, it’s about feeling abundance no matter what you have.

We certainly started out with simplicity in mind, but as our kiddos are quickly out-growing clothes and toys and stuff, I’m starting to feel a bit overwhelmed. While our community yard sale was fun, it sure didn’t make a dent in getting rid of kid stuff. I definitely need to get it together to start being a swap mama I wish that I had a week to go through everything, but I’ll have to be happy with a day: this Friday. Wish me luck!
