Even when life is going well, it’s full of so many obligations and chores and hassles – and so little time. So many things you have to do that it seems you’ll never get to the stuff you want to do. The more technology enables us to get done, the more we’re expected to get done. Most of us have less leisure time than our grandparents did. It’s ridiculous, but we can’t change the world.
In 2006, I decided I’d had enough. I went on a mission to:
- Save time spent on routine tasks. If you can shave 10 minutes out of your daily tasks, you’ve just saved yourself 2.5 days a year.
- Spend less without sacrificing lifestyle. Saving isn’t about doing without – it’s about getting the most bang for your buck so you can have the best lifestyle possible on the money available to you.
- Enjoy more peace of mind. Learning how to simplify life can cut down on stress.
- Have more fun and time with loved ones. When you’re able to spend less time on chores and drudge work, you can spend more time with people you love, or on hobbies or other pursuits you find fulfilling.
I’m always looking for ways to simplify life and make it more rewarding. My tips are all about helping you make smart choices that save time and money, tame your hectic life, and help you reclaim your energy for family, hobbies, creativity, spirituality or just relaxation. You’ll find suggestions for everything from simple, healthy, quick-fix meals to lease negotiating tips and DIY projects.
