I also feel better when I don't have as much "stuff" in my life. As much as companies try and tell me that I would be happier with more stuff, I just know I feell better when I am not pushing stuff around all the time!
I am a SAHM with a hubby that works WAY TOO MUCH! and I want to try and make his future easier on him. By decluttering, simplifying etc. I am trying to take some of the financial pressure off of him.
Why do you de-clutter, simplify and the like? What drives you? I am sure there are more for me... but wanted to read what you think.
