In the beginning

Like many people today, I'm a bit overwhelmed with the amount of "stuff" in my life. From magazines to stacks of paper and piles of clothes, it's hard to keep track of what I have—and use and find it when I need it. And it's not just the physical stuff I need to weed through to find the gems—It's everything. My mind is also cluttered with useless knowledge and worry. This blog is meant to follow my life in the attempts of giving away one thing a day for 365 days to unclutter my life and see what it would be like to live a less cluttered and more fulfilling one. I'll make the rules up as I go, meaning there could be days when I give away cookies or money or a thought of the day, but the purpose remains the same: freeing myself of "stuff." If you want to follow along and do your own experiment of getting rid of stuff, I'd love to hear your stories and successes.

Live long and simplify!
