It's Black Friday here in the United States. Just yesterday, we were all thankful for everything in our lives, and a portion of the population is out scrambling for bargains in the stores. Have you seen the amounts of stuff some people buy on Black Friday?
When I look back at my blog and see how many pictures there are of things we no longer own, I'm amazed. We have let go of a lot of things! And all those things we purchased and acquired with our hard earned money. But did any of those things make me happier? I don't think so.
So just consider that Christmas doesn't come from a store. Christmas arrives without gifts every year. And you can be happy with less. And yes, so can your children. I would also propose that buying less now will mean less to declutter in the years ahead.
Are you buying fewer gifts this year?
