    Hello all!

    Hi everyone!

    I am brand new to posting on this forum but I have been lurking for quite some time now. I am so glad that I have finally joined and will be able to join in the conversation.

    I have been trying to simplify my life for a few years now, but with a husband, 2 growing boys, 4 dogs, chickens, etc. it certainly isn't easy. Because of all this I have been trying to simplify where I can because it doesn't seem like there's a lot simple in my life right now. But I would like to participate where I can.

    Thanks for having me!

    Your life does sound busy. It is interesting to read the different approaches that members have taken to simplifying their lives and sharing from one box, one room etc. Join in!

    Glad to see you here. Don’t be shy in introducing new topics.

    Many of us have been around in this group for so long that we’ve talked for years about voluntary simplicity. It’s good to have a fresh viewpoint on things.

    Welcome from the Pac NW! Whereabouts are you?
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Welcome! So are you an RN? We have one or two (that I know of) on the forum (and my sister, who is not on the forum, is an RN).

    My experience with kids and dogs is that very little about them makes life simpler. But they certainly can make life more enjoyable!
