Episode 073: Less is More



If you ever feel like your stuff is taking over, the kids lose interest in their toys quickly, or your cabinets and closets are bursting at the seams, perhaps it’s time to own less.


I’m a big believer that having less actually gives you more! When you have less items to clean up, wash, organize, and find a place for, you gain precious time back in your day and physical space to enjoy as well.


You may also find that the value of your stuff goes up when you have less. You appreciate what you have more and this can lead to some lovely mental peace as well.


On this episode I discuss these thoughts further and suggest ways you might consider intentionally choosing to have less, so that you gain so much more in time, space, experiences, and the overall health and well-being of you and your family!
