Index of Decluttering Posts

Since I've been devoting so much blog space to simplifying, I am going to put another index on my sidebar. Here it is, under construction for now...

If you want to see an earlier household tour on my old blog you can look here:
Household Journey
Hooray, I have made real progress since those days! Nice to have a record of improvement : ).

On this blog, I started simplifying after reading Father Dubay's book Happy are you Poor (the link leads you to yet another index of posts). I am not confusing this decluttering with a practice of poverty. It's not the same thing. But for me, it might be a precondition. ... like recollecting is a necessary step before prayer, that sometimes may end up merging with prayer.

  1. Hi! I was looking for an e-mail address to send you a private message, but I couldn't find one on your blog. I noticed you live in the Sierra Nevadas with 7 kids. We live at the tail end of the SN (Tehachapi) with 7 kids. If you'd like to "talk" my e-mail is frauzehn at


I would love to hear your thoughts on this!
