Living with less

The dollar bin has become my nemesis. My kids see a sale sign and think I will buy anything. We have too many things at our house. Things we don't need. The play room has been in such a state of chaos that I finally broke down and told my girls that they could clean up or I would start donating everything. They called my bluff and chose the donation route. I have since hauled off six garbage bags full of toys. They haven't missed a single thing and neither have I. We are talking a lot more about saving and about things we need versus things we want. We are taking the money we might have wasted on those unnecessary things and instead treating ourselves to fun activities we can do as a family like movies and concerts. I feel liberated!
