Sometimes all you need is less

I am talking hair here..... I decided to snip my long locks. About 12 inches. It went from below my bra line to just below my ears. I just needed something different and more importantly easier to style and maintain. So I made the jump :)

The hairstylist told me that I was going to have so much more energy with so much less hair and I looked at her like she was crazy !!! It didn't take m long however to realize that she was right. I now have about 30 extra minutes a day without all the straightening and flat ironing. It gives me a jump on my day, lets me get ready and read my daily devotional before my kids get up. In return I don't feel rushed, can spend more time with them at the beginning of the day and overall just feel more organized.

This made me start thinking about how else I can simplify my life! What can I "cut" out of my life so that its a more richer existence? So here is what I came up with.....

Cut out the clutter in my basement. We are talking no small task here ladies..... its a jungle down there. I have thrown everything I don't know what to do with down those stairs. There could be a small colony of trolls living beneath my stairs. And to top it all off its a finished basement. That is so much wasted space! Not to mention it is draining my wallet. I can't find my craft products when I go to make something and so I buy more. Only to find the exact same product a couple weeks later..... That is not even mentioning that we will have more space for a play room, small office and a home theater room. With all that extra room we won't feel the pressure to move soon. ( That is a whole lot of savings there !! )

So wish me luck girls.... I will need it.
