More than enough

There is very little that we actually need. That kind of sounds funny to me because just a couple of months ago, you could always hear me saying "I need to buy this" or "we need this for the kitchen" or "I need to get the kids some new clothes". I've definitely gone through a change these past few weeks.

So, as of today, I will officially begin the compacting journey. DH and I talked about it and he has agreed to commit himself as well.

Here is what we'll be doing:


  • Buy only what is truly needed
  • Buy nothing new, except for health & safety items
  • Borrow or barter before buying used
  • Prepare healthy, simple meals at home every day
  • Will completely eliminate processed foods and white sugar, white flour, etc
  • Will eat foods in their proper season and buy locally as much as possible
  • Use only cloth for napkins, "paper" towels, toilet tissue and feminine needs
  • Get rid of all clutter in our home and keep only what we truly need or find beautiful, always giving away whatever no longer brings us enjoy
  • Will seek free and simple family activities to bring us enjoyment
  • Unplug any appliances not in use and eliminate as many appliances as possible.
  • Learn to grow things like herbs and some vegetables in containers


Exception: I will allow for printing of photos, but only ones I've carefully chosen and have a particular use for. I will allow for limited tickets to events such as festivals or museums.
