As I began researching a more simplified lifestyle and minimalism and uncluttering, I came across a term that perfectly fits what I'm trying to do-- "Downshifting." Everything clicked and VOILA I had a term for what I'm trying to do.
What is downshifting? Much to my own chagrin, I find that Wikipedia actually has the best definition. Basically, it is an attempt to break free from the work-spend cycle and life a more fulfilling life with more time for what I truly love.
This blog will be where I track my progress as I, and my family, begin pursuing this path. I have already started a Frugality Experiment and some Mini-Goals . And have tackled more projects, but I want to separate my "Mom" Blog from my Downshifting.
So this is my start!
