When Decluttering Isn’t

I always thought decluttering meant ending up with less stuff. At least that’s how I do it. But buying organizers for 30 different tea bags or repackaging food that already comes in perfectly good containers seems wasteful to me. If you have less stuff, you’ll have less to organize (and to buy organizational systems for!)

It’s all about freedom; the less stuff you have, the less time you spend organizing it, so you’re free to do what you really want to do (unless you really want to organize tea bags, in which case, knock yourself out!)

Small House Porn?

I stumbled on to this site, where I found not only plans for tiny and small houses, but also the stories of those who are building them. I just love looking at this stuff, even though I’m happy living in the little house I have. I suppose some would call this small house porn; maybe so, because I  can’t get enough of it!
