Who What Now?

Welcome, I am embarking on a personal quest of minimizing my life and will be documenting it through this blog. This page will display the snippets of each post with the pages Minimizing Process, Better Choices and Personal serving to sort them based on their topics and interests.

Lady Business

Periods, I am referring to the menstrual cycle. Consider this your warning if this is not what you want to be reading right now - and steer away. I can already hear the grumbles of commiseration from the ladies, I feel you. With my bloat-day pajama pants, heating pad and snacks - I feel you.... Continue Reading →

Mild Lurking

I skipped a week or so of posting, partly because I didn't have a whole lot to write and partly because I was/am going through some heavy emotional stuff - which is to be expected I imagine - with a divorce and all. I still seem to find, however, that I can glean a little... Continue Reading →

It’s the simple things…


I don’t want a fancy house. I don’t have to have fancy jewelry. I don’t desire designer goods. I don’t think expensive restaurants are all that great. I don’t need the newest and best, the biggest or the brightest. There’s nothing wrong with any of these things, they’re just not something I long for.

Even after these items have lost their value or outlived their prospective places... Continue Reading →

Stuffed animals that is. I have a problem, always have actually. I, as a full grown adult (on paper), still thoroughly enjoy stuffed toys and kind of collect them. Well, half collect and half continuously receive. It always seems like once people can pen you in on their gift list for a solid type, that's... Continue Reading →

Teeth and Armpits

Sounds like the descriptive opener to the hot new low-budget horror movie. 😀 Quite simply, this is where I started trying to make better choices with the purchases I will undoubtedly have to continue making, no matter how small I minimize my life.
