One Less Thing A Day in 2014

I didn't think I would have enough to continue this through the year, but it seems like the more you reduce your stuff the more you are willing to let go of.  We may need to consider downsizing with all the space we have in the house now.  This may be the year that I get rid of the rest of our DVD's and who knows what all else.  What a good way to start the year and an easy thing to do:  just get rid of one thing a day.  Chances are, you will get rid of more.  But, knowing that you just need to find one thing each day makes it easy.  You also can get rid of the things that aren't hard to decide before tackling the more difficult stuff.  So, here's to a great year of freedom from things.
