Isn't it strange, I had spent a lifetime trying to obtain material things.Now what interest me is a simpler life, a smaller house More comfort in every area of my life.Some will tell you this is a sign of getting old.I say it is a sign that wisdom has kicked in. I wrote a woman that I had seen in a magazine article about using wood stoves to cook on.She told me she lived completely off the grid. I have a big 52 inch TV that I don't want to give up or the decorating shows that I watch. It's great having a stove that I can turn a button and have instant heat and prepare a meal. It's great having electricity. I am a frugal person in a lot of ways but do enjoy the above memtioned things. What do you think of the Living with Ed show? do any of you do simular things, would you share them please. I have had some really hard times in my life sometimes I didn't know if i could go on.I am just so grateful for so much now. How do you live simpler?
