Retirement is A Great Time To Declutter
Reader Diane suggested I take a fresh look at decluttering and simplifying one's environment and lifestyle. Retirement is an excellent time to look for ways to reduce the "stuff' that crowds our home, our mind, our finances, our relationships, and our schedule.
This is a subject I have addressed often over the years, but newer readers may have missed some of the posts that have appeared in Satisfying Retirement.
What you will find below are a series of links to some of the past posts that generated good readership and some great comments. Click on the ones that catch your eye or address a specific issue that interests you.
Then, I hope you will add your ideas and suggestions. The fascinating aspect of simplification is how varied are the ways we find to achieve our goals. Even the concept of "simplification" means different things to different folks.

This sampling of past posts should be enough to get your creativity flowing. Now, it is your turn. How do you approach simplicity? To you is it cutting back on what you own, or buying what makes you happy but only the best quality you can afford so something lasts a long time? Do you dream of living in a tiny house? Is decluttering a passion of yours, or something that does not bring you joy?
