Blogger Rachel Meeks has shared oodles of ideas on how to simplify your life. One of her beliefs that resonates within almost every post is that fewer "things" in your life leads to a happier life, or rather, a more cultivated number of "things." Makes sense, right? She must be a big picture person rather than a perfectionist like me, because she shares lots of tips on how to get things done quickly, rather than getting mired in the details and never quite getting everything done. She must have a secret camera on me at all times and see how inefficient I can be sometimes!
I've been following Small Notebook , which started in 2008, for a few months now. Rachel's "Should I Buy This Shirt" decision tree is one of her best clothing-related posts to date. We should all have a mini laminated version of this in our purses.
You can read the full post here.
Here's a sampling of some of her other posts. She covers everything from clothing to cleaning to organizing to money to cooking, and more.
- Add Classic Style to the Small Wardrobe
- Are You Making Your To Do List Too Hard? Find Out Why.
- Holding on to Sentimental Things
- My Top 5 Cleaning "Ah-Ha" Moments
And here's one I have an appreciation for, but have a hard time giving in to. Maybe I need to read it again. And again. And again.
Speaking of that, it's almost 11:30pm on the night of my last day off of the 2011 holiday season, and I have to get up at 6:20am for the first time in 11 days. Perhaps this night owl should go to bed. Wish me luck in the morning when my alarm is blaring!
