Decluttering

In order to live simply, we eventually want to live without mains power & water. Instead, we hope to generate our own power & live on land that has a spring or well. At the moment, we have 2 shower rooms & a bathroom in our rented house, so moving away from these luxuries will be a massive step, but we really want to do it! We don't watch TV, although we have an old television that we use to watch DVDs on. We are gradually getting rid of (selling or giving away) unnecessary electrical appliances, we don't have any fancy furniture & most of our clothes are from charity shops. We try to live by the war time motto "Make do & mend."
Here's some info about it:

It seems like a good time for cutting back too & this book is really useful & cheap too!


Life without luxuries doesn't have to be boring & miserable - we love it & it's a wonderful feeling that we are decluttering our home & making space to be creative...
