1. Get rid of your clocks.

3. Say “No!” often.

4.  Experiment with cooking; join the Slow Food movement!

5.  Stop and really look at the beauty in your world.

6.  Deny any responsibility you have for the chaos that ensues.  After all, you’re just simplifying your life.

Simplicity attained.

    Smartphones are the devil’s handiwork. It’s the adult version of a wooby. Woobies are torn away from children as they get older because we don’t want them to rely on them for comfort. Perhaps it’s time for grown-ups to get a taste of their own medicine (myself included of course)! Death to the smartphone! But not before I check my email, wordpress, facebook, twitter, text messages, etc.

    Happy Monday!

    Great drawings and wonderful color! I don’t own a Smartphone (just my basic 1st edition cell phone) but know the day is coming.

    Good stuff – so glad I found your page!

      Thanks! I just got my smartphone about a month ago, and it’s eaten my soul alive. Moderation is an impossibility.

    I throw my cell phone out the car window quite often and watch it smash to smithereens.

    and then I have to go back to the Sprint store and get a replacement.

    when will I learn?

    #6 cracks me up!

    Yeah.. clutter is from the devil. Likes to clutter your brain and eat your eyes, so you don’t see the clutter. Stupid devil.

    I love all your…..posts. Was gonna say “stuff” but that defeats the purpose of a minimalist, would you agree…?
