I just checked out both Freecycling and Mr. Money Mustache and these are great resource sites. Thank you for sharing. I know Joe is going to LOVE laying in bed scrolling through Freecycling, ha. There’s a group in Iowa City.

I love living simply. It removes so much noise from my life. We even go as far as allowing ourselves and allowance from each pay period for leisure, luxuries, et cetera and once that money is gone we don’t spend any money until the next pay period. It’s taught me to focus less on what I think I need and more on feeling grateful for what I have.
