    Hello

    Wow, it has been such a long time since I have been on this site. Originally I was here MANY years ago, but was gone for so long I think my user name may have expired, so I recreated it a few years ago, but left the site again before posting anything.

    Over the years I backslid from simple living a bit due to a relationship where she absolutely refused to live a simple life. Now the relationship is over -- which isn't a bad thing -- the house is sold, a small apartment is my current abode, and possessions have been thankfully removed from my life. I feel in control again for the first time in several years!

    Welcome back Dave!

    Many of us have spouses who are some version of less-simple-than-we-woild-like. My own DH is a god of frugality, but the flip side is that when he buys something we have it forever, so clutter is a concern here.

    Back. It is amazing how finances have such a power for harmony or less but they do for most people.

    Good for you, Dave. Now that you have a clean slate you'll have to keep posting on how things are going.
