How much do you really need to be happy? Does acquiring more "stuff" make you happier? How much "stuff" will it take before you are satisfied? I have learned through the years that "stuff" only clutters my life and wastes money. Now I am content to live a much simpler life.
I began my simple life by getting rid of my television. There was never anything on there worth watching anyway.
I then began to bake bread and other things from scratch. I would rather bake than do anything else.
Now I have a small vegetable garden. My goal this year is to have something growing in my garden everyday.
