Due to the slew of recent real-life “live with less” stories, I’m in the process of whittling down what I purchase and own. I like to think of it as simplifying my life. This means scrupulously monitoring what groceries I buy, purchasing only clothing I know I’ll wear, and ridding my arsenal of beauty products and makeup until I have only the essentials.
The first in my simplification project is the refrigerator. My husband and I eat plenty of cereal, pasta and fresh produce, and freeze many of our fruits. Too, we don’t dine out often. This makes it easy to keep our refrigerator free of excess leftovers, takeout and soda bottles. I will strive to have only the essentials: eggs, milk, butter, chocolate, tomato sauce, condiments, and fresh produce which I will purchase only every couple of days. Nothing makes me happier than the sight of a clean, near-empty fridge.
Live simply! Erin
