Simplify your life

I think Simplify is going to be motto for the year 2008! Ali Edwards does a One Little Word Challenge every year. Last year as I was making my list, I kept going back & forth between Enjoy & Simplify. I ended up picking Enjoy. This year I am definitely going to pick Simplify. I didn't pick Simplify because I didn't think I was ready for the work involved in making things simple. I think because I chose not to, I wasn't able to fully enjoy things either.

I need to simplify my life so badly! I started today but unsubscribing from a bunch of yahoo groups & store newsletters. My inbox gets so full, I get overwhelmed & don't check the messages. I'm doing a little bit at a time till I get it under control. I'd love to sit & just take care of it at once time, but honestly it is so bad, it would take me ALL day long. With christmas right around the corner I can't do that. I figured I'd do a bit here & there & then maybe during the christmas break, I can really attack it.

I also need to simplify all the stuff in my house. Anybody have too much stuff? I do! My kids are overflowing with toys, I am overflowing with paperwork, etc. Ugh! It needs to go. I also have tons of collectibles. I actually started wanting to get rid of lots of it a few weeks ago, but none of it gets any bids on ebay right now. It is packed away anyways, so I'm going to hold off till I actually get a sale for the stuff. I don't even care if I don't make my money back, just something!

Anybody else need to simplify your life? If so tell me what you plan to do!
