Oh my, I have been on such a purge, never in my life have I been in such a purging mood, and it FEELS OH SO GOOD :).

Everyday I do a little more, and a little more, and a little more, and I feel calm and peaceful as our home becomes more restful and organized.

I thank you, because you started me on a path of watching you tubers who espouse minimalism and simple living and it has really stirred something in me, something good :)

Oh, and thanks to you :) my husband and I are now somewhat hooked on Tiny House videos, they are just addictive to watch, but as my 4 year granddaughter noted, "grandma all these houses are kind of the same", LOL.

I always used to really enjoy women's magazines, but as they began to walk round and round the same well-trodden track of weight loss, overcoming terrible things, looking stunning, adultery and recipes, I lost interest. For me, now, YouTube offers the same enjoyment and inspiration magazines once did. I subscribe to several people's channels, and I find that — even if they are telling me things I already know — they re-inspire me and help me persevere. Your granddaughter is right about the Tiny Houses being the same! Haha! But what I like about them is that the people/motivations/lifestyles are all different. My four favourite Tiny House videos of all time are this one about Dee Williams https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8F8cpXg_n8 , and this one (such sadness in him though, some raw wounds I think) about Jay Shafer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kokfI0vn9ZM , this Japanese one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtsLtsYJLmc , and this which is probably perfection: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UY2CkA6U2M . I'll stop right there before I think of any more!
