Uniforms and Peace

Becoming Minimalist

A very good article detailing why many, many people are now going to "uniforms," a wardrobe consisting of about 30 peaces (per season, they switch it out when the weather changes), or one that contains only a few simple items (such as black slacks and white silk blouses, or my Hubby's black jeans with black "work shirt").

I can't even begin to do as good a job of explaining (though I have posted on it recently) it as the minimalists do, so go read there.

I will be going to the local thrift store to look for black skirts (and some clothes for the kids since this is their monthly "$5 a basket" sale), so, ironically, I need to spend money to cut down :-D Actually, with this particular sale, We usually need to buy two baskets to accommodate my adult-sized sons' "new" pants anyway, so essentially the rest of our clothes are free:-) Not a bad deal at all!

I won't be going to "uniform" shirts. I like the variety there. But cutting back from the waist down will be very nice.

Been studying herbs and blood pressure. Turns out celery is good for something after all!

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
