So I took a long (no, a really long) break from blogging. No good reason – just life getting in the way, relationships, family, complacency – the usual. But the big news is that I’ve spent the last couple of months decluttering my life and home in preparation for my third move in three years. (You know you move too much, when your mover remembers exactly who you are :P) And today I feel good about having fewer things for a simpler life and about the acts of charity. Here are some of my personal experiences and simple steps one can take to declutter one’s life and/or home while helping those in need.
