Simple living is a lifestyle, mindset, and habit that is gaining more importance and popularity in today’s modern world. It is the practice of living with less to shuffle time free for what matters most. The power of simplicity comes with tremendous benefits that no longer can get overlooked.

Following that kind of lifestyle is one of the most significant answers and impactful solutions to many dilemmas of what we call a typical but overwhelming and unfulfilling modern life.
Living simple teaches us to be resourceful and live greener, make wise daily decisions, and contribute to our community as well as to our planet as best as we can, if my family of hoarders can do this, I'm sure most people can, let's begin small!

A happiness that is not in possessions and status symbols.
But in the small but simple pleasures that present themselves to us daily and don’t necessarily cost anything, or at least not much.
