Evidence of my quest for a simple life!

July 31st, 2009 at 10:16 am

I have small projects I tackle everyday in my quest to live a simpler life. Today I conquered my linen closet. I've attached pictures (I forgot to take a before picture).

The white bag is the stuff I'm giving to the goodwill. There was only one blanket I could not part with. It's an ET blanket, the first matching bed set we'd ever had from 1982.

I'm also re-reading Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace Revisited. I've come to realize that I have not been serious enough about paying off the mortgage and more of our extra money should go towards paying this debt, which we pay over $10,000 in interest a year. I'm also going to make a priority to maxed out my contributions to my Roth IRA. We have one year's worth of an emergency fund, but I would really like to have 18 months worth. I know that I'm probably overly ambitious, but I think that with effort my husband can accomplish these goals.

    I have been clearing out and donating a lot of things lately, too. We've given away a lot, but it still seems as though we have way too much stuff and much more to get rid of.

    Congrats on the closet! It feels good doesn't it. Good luck with all your goals, as well.

    Hey slow down! You're demotivating those of us who are frantically racing to catch up with you in fiscal and organizational sanity! j/k - it's a great inspiration to see someone doing things right.

    Great job on the closet!

    Do you do flylady? I do - for the kick in the pants I need to get going every day the emails really help me.
