    New Here~

    Hello, I live in the Southwest, currently working for a financial services firm and still working 100% from home. I spend my time always looking for ways to simplify my life and am currently doing a lot of decluttering and cleaning out my closet by selling on poshmark and mercari, ebay, etc. I am very outdoorsy and my partner and I like to hike, backpack, camp, offroad, and in general we prefer to just be 'doing'. Actually, he does way more backpacking than I do. I'm getting too old for his some of his adventures!
    I don't watch much television nor allow the news to permeate my daily existence.

    I am also a mom to a 23 year old college student who still lives at home. I have a cat. Always been a dog person, but this kitty needed a home so I adopted her from a friend and she's been a joy to have in the house.

    Hello and welcome, antelopebunny! You and your boyfriend sound very outdoorsy!

    I saw you were interested in the no clothes buying thread. Good luck with it!

    I used to have to dress very professionally for my job when I was in front of clients, pre-pandemic, of course. Now, I shop for fun and boredom. Hence the reason I am trying to simplify my life. When we go back to office next month, I'll only be going back once a week. I clearly won't need my massive wardrobe and I'm not even sure what fits or is in trends anymore anyway. Been living in yoga clothes for the past 2 years, it seems.

    Welcome. It's good you enjoy the outdoors otherwise you might get cabin fever working from home. We have an Organizing Your Life section that focuses on decluttering.

    I visited the unique southwest in early 2019 and loved it.

    Welcome from SW Washington!
    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!
