Three months ago, I started a new job. I was full of excitement and eagerly anticipated the challenge. Last week, I handed in my notice.

"The average American has 300,000 items in their home and $16,000 in credit card debt," according to a recent post by The Minimalists. I will admit, I was a little incredulous when I read this, until I realised I had over 30 items in my handbag alone (this includes my purse, but not its contents.)… Continue reading Less is More
