Day 5: iPhone/tablet speaker

What I purged

It's been a long time since I purged anything or posted about it, but I was cleaning and reorganizing my room at my new place last weekend, and realized I didn't have much room on the narrow bookshelf that serves as a nightstand for me.  I hardly ever use this little battery-powered speaker, despite its clever design, which also serves as an easel for your tablet or iPhone.

Getting back to 365

The other day I set aside something to get rid of, so I think I may be sufficiently settled in now to get back to the original purpose of this blog: to get rid of things and simplify my life.

On the surface I have fewer things now, since I moved out, but in reality I still have a lot to go through, mostly things at my old house.  Some of it is jointly owned between me and my husband, and we both need to go through them, but other things are mine.  I won't be able to (or want to) bring everything with me, so it's time to start going through things.

Reflections on a simple life

A couple months now into my new life, I have brought more of my belongings with me.  I haven't had a lot of time to go through things, since I have been so busy with work -- I am a nanny and work a lot more during the summer, when the kids are out of school -- but the little I have done, and the things I have bought for my new life, have caused me to revisit my assumptions about a simple life.
