100 Things Thursday…continues

I just hopped onto a blog from Thirsty Thursday called My Simple Walk and was drawn to her post 100 Things Thursday.

What a concept? Living a simple life and owning just 100 items. To many around the world that can be most desirable but here in the US that sounds almost impossible. Could you cut down your items of living to only 100 items? I don’t think I can…. For me, I am use to having so much available to me at any given time that it kind of sounds ridiculous to do without when it is so easily attainable. I have been trying for the past couple of months to clean out my closet but I just get so overwhelmed that I just give up.

Imagine living such a simple life…

Simple does not mean dull or boring.
Simple to me sounds kind of like freedom from chaos.
My blog is called Keeping it Simple and Savvy but in reality the more I strive to be simple the more chaotic my life becomes. Kind of like the whole consistency issue that I am having. Maybe consistency and simplicity go hand and hand? Well if they don’t, they should.
Anywho…(a southern thing)
I want to start on my 100 items list…

  1. The first thing on my list would have to be my seeing glasses. I can’t see without them.
  2. My camera.. must preserve special occassions

10 Cleaver Ways June Cleaver Kept Life Simple

iMOM put out this super cute list and I had to share…. 

10 Cleaver Ways June Cleaver Kept Life Simple

1. She had her hair done once a week (that sounds nice) and it stayed that way until the next time. We wash, blow dry, and straighten, etc. every day.

2. She wore simple pearls. We create too many choices with tons of accessories.

3. She cooked “meat and potatoes.” We try to create a gourmet meal or dinner perfection every night.

4. She limited her children’s food options. We are short order cooks, or take them out for fast food, or order in.

5. She had fewer clothing choices, wore all purpose dresses and outfits. We overload our closets, and still only wear 20% of what’s in there.

6. She didn’t spend her free time on the computer or watching a Lifetime movie marathon. We waste precious time on Facebook or surfing the net.

7. She kept herself busy with her home life first. We busy ourselves with outside stuff, which puts our home life last.

8. She stayed fit without a gym membership. We have a gym membership and still aren’t fit!

9. She stayed involved with her kid’s lives and choices of friends (see: Eddie Haskell). We give up because it’s all too much to keep track of.

10. She greeted her family with joy. We let stress take over because we have so much going on.

How many of these are you guilty of? Honestly, I’m guilty of pretty much all of them as some point.
