Re: Why simple is hard (article)
That was kind of awesome, and so true! It isn't an easy process to feel comfortable doing something that's so against the mainstream American way. It can be especially hard when you have kids that are bombarded with advertising for products that sound great or are surrounded by friends' toys that are so cool that they would love to have them too, so they bug, or nag for them. It's definitely not easy.
And as I say that I've got half my master bathroom taken over by things to give away that I'm waiting to list on Freecycle until we've collected all of it so once it's gone, it's gone and we never have to look at any of it again. It's a lot more effort than I thought it would be.
