Baby Steps

Wouldn’t you believe it, my very first post and somehow it get eaten! I dunno what happened, but I will try my best to recreate what I wrote (typed?) before. So if it sounds dry and dull, that may be why.

There is only so long before you need to stop saying, “Wouldn’t it be nice if,” and “Gee, I sure would like to,” and just do something. I have been fantasizing about a minimalistic lifestyle and decided to just go for it. Really, I don’t have anything holding me back (except for a vehicle). I unschool my daughter, L, and my work is all online.

I see this step as being a huge positive step for both of our lives. I have wanderlust real bad, folks. Like, really. And L’s education would be actually totally fun! Decide to spend a week at the beach collecting shells, watching birds, and learning about the ecosystem? Awesome.

We are still in the “cleaning out stage.” Get rid of all the things! This really forces you to figure out what you need, as opposed to what you want. This is all very hard for L, because she wants to keep all the toys. My hope is to be ready to go by the end of the year, so there’s still some time to organize.

I’m hoping to make (almost) daily posts to give everyone a glimpse into our life together, living a minimalistic and frugal life. Also, if you would like to support us, there is a link to my Etsy shop on my About page.
