Hello All -
My husband, my two sons and I recently moved into a rental home with my husbands Aunt and Uncle. The reason for this is that we were/are drowning in debt and so are they.
We all agreed to live together for 1 year, and in that time - we can all get a fresh start.
One thing that kinda sucks, but is also kinda nice - most of our stuff needed replaced due to wear and tear. We have lived together for 4 years, and most of our items were given to us. Our couch belonged to my husband's ex's grand parents for pete's sake!
So we kept what we needed, and trashed the rest.
We've lived together for a month, and I've already paid down 500 dollars in debt. Next month, I can do 800. I'm excited ! LOL.
Anyways - The point of my post. I am trying to learn to live with less. My home has always been a wreck, due to having too much stuff.
What are some things that you have and you really don't need - or things that are always in your way.
For example - We are a family of 4 - why did I need a linen closet full of towel. I took it down to 4.
I also can't resist sale shopping - so I have 6 bottles of baby soap. SIX BOTTLES. I've used 2 bottles in 8 months. What the hell am I doing with 6 bottles? This is with everything
How do you keep the clutter under control ?
