Dh has been talking about wanting more down time as a family and for recreation. I have told him in the past that the more stuff we have, the more time we spend managing it, the less time we have but it never seemed to click with him. Over the past week, the concept has really settled with him and he is ready to purge even more with me. We are hoping to get rid of over half of what we own. No more stockpiling huge amounts of food (tracking sales will make nowing how much to buy work for us), almost all of my crafting stuff is going, half the toys are going (kids have agreed to this and admit that they basically only play with Legos, Tinker Toys, Lincoln Logs, a few dress ups items, and their action figures), most of our holiday decor is going, almost all of my nicer dining pieces for entertaining guests, etc... We have finally come to the point of thinking that our house isn't to small (1200 feet with a full unfinished basement) but that it is rather to full. The problem is not our smaller than average closets but rather the amount of crap we have in them. That only having one bathroom is not a curse but rather a blessing as there is only one to clean. So excited to continue this journey.
