  4. I love your posts! I have been trying to be more minimalist for the last year. I felt so guilty about the two of us (empty nesters) living in a 5 bedroom house we tried to downsize but things that were smaller were more expensive than the home we were in. So we invited our daughter and family (total of 4) to move in with us, and we love it. We got rid of so much stuff to make room for them and every room in the house is used again. :) I so appreciate your posts to keep me
    motivated to keep decluttering,

    1. Hi! It sounds like you've found a great way to live with less while staying in your own home and (I'm sure) helping your daughter and her family.

      Thank you for your positive comment, and I hope you'll keep reading!

      All the best,
      Karen

  5. Hi Karen. Hope you're keeping well. Just wanted to let you know I have your 'Una Bella Vita' post from MONDAY, JULY 15, 2019 on my favourites bar. I have re-read it today (as I often do!) It resonates with me. I find it so true and inspiring. Just wanted to share that with you.

    1. Oh my goodness, you have made my day!

      And I too need to remember to appreciate what I have right in front of me, TODAY, rather than being somewhere else in my head, longing for what I don't have. That's a recipe for missing out on the joy of what I've been given.

      Please take good care of yourself and your family, and have a blessed Easter.

  7. I just read your book Simple Money and think it includes lots of valuable tips! I'm hoping you'll write one on unschooling now. That's a subject that fascinates me so I would like to learn more about how it is done.

    1. Linda, thank you so much! I would be so thankful if you would leave a review of the book on Amazon.
      I haven't considered writing about unschooling -- that would be quite an interesting subject. I have written and published a book about helping your child (or grandchild) become a lifelong reader, and it does include some tips and techniques that I used when teaching my own children. It's called The Magic of Words, and it's available here: (https://amzn.to/3blI7Gn).

  8. Dear Karen, just to say I love reading your articles once in a while. It is very reassuring to know that there are people like you out there that believe that less is more and we don't need so much stuff to be happy. Yesterday I got rid of some xmas items from my family heritage to create some space in my shelves by passing them on for free to another family that will use them for the next few years to decorate their home. Seeing them being very pleased with that chrismas pyramide from the Ore mountains in Saxony was a happy experience for me and I am sure my dead family members will forgive me for it. Kind regards

    1. Hallo Julia, und frohliche Weihnachten!

      Thank you for your kind comments. It can be hard to let go of a family heirloom, so I congratulate you. When I downsized, I kept two decorative items that have been part of my family's Christmas since I was born, but I gave away many, many other things. I truly enjoy using the two items I kept, and I hope that those who use the things I gave away are equally happy to have them. By passing your special pyramide along, you actually extend its life, and allow it to brighten the spirits of people into a new generation. Don't you think that's a wonderful outcome!

      Be well.
      Karen
