Get rid of everything…

A couple years ago we realized we had been buying and buying but never letting go. Also we knew we were in debt but had no plan to pay it off.  January 2010 we implemented a three year debt repayment schedule and a new (like we ever had one before) budget. We have been using up extra items (who needs 20 different hair products) and shredding papers (why was I saving that bill for mustard from 2005).We’ve had annual garage sales, given furniture to family and friends, even put things outside with a sign that says free. We got rid of our coffee maker and toaster and havent regretted it yet. Now it’s time for some serious decisions. Is it necessary to have at least 3 sizes of poultry roasters? If books are available from libraries should I clutter my shelves with them?

On my new blog I will be talking about our families journey to debt free forever and how we would like to live more minimally (less junk). Please join me.

For now I will leave it at that and add some more soon!



About stephanieough

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.
