Live Simply - Simply Live

One of our families 2011 New Year's resolutions is to Live more Simply.

How does one go about doing this in our "over indulgent, tremendously complex, excessively electronic, got to have it now, compounded multitasking, keep up with the Jones', work more for less" society? Honestly, I don't have the answer to that question.

For my family to start living a simpler life style within the confines of our small area of the universe, I have began a list of things that we here at Rose Bud Cottage can do to begin this process:
Get Home Better Organized - a place for everything, everything in its place
Follow the Budget - we have one, but get lax at times with it
Declutter ALL Areas - home & storage
Have TAG Sale  - of items gathered in decluttering
Donate - remaining "decluttered" items to Charity
Waste Less - time, food, water, electricity, etc.
Recycle More - compost more, find unique ways to reuse, etc.
Use Cloth grocery bags - keep in car & not forget to use
Watch less TV, Movies, Games, etc. - limit time for all areas
Buy Local - Buy Better - Buy Less - better bang for our buck
Use Low Cost/No Cost Resources more wisely - Library's, Thrift stores, etc.

This is the start of my list...Hope to add more to it as we progress and accomplish some of the items. Do you have any ideas on how to live simply, so that we can simply live? Share, please?
