more enough? {enough, day 29}

Squeaking this post in just a few hours before I need to write one for tomorrow. Whew!

So, friends. I’ve been thinking. I don’t really want this Enough Experiment to end. It’s been fun to hear all of your stories and cheer you on as you downsize and simplify. And God has reeeeally been speaking to me lately on this topic, so I’ve got a lot more to share.

Now. Of course we can’t be getting rid of 30 things every single day for the rest of forever. (or maybe we can??)

So this is what I’m thinking. For at least the month of June, we’ll continue with Enough. But I might not post every single day. And it most definitely won’t always be purging challenges.

I’m thinking other kinds of challenges. Like heart ones.

Thoughts and ideas about having enough, doing enough, being enough. Sharing what God is telling me and inviting you to give your own unique insight.

What do you think?

(I’d also love to take you on a tour of our apartment, space by space. For better or worse. We’ll see!)

    Purged a bag of books to go to the second hand bookstore, some old make-up went in the trash, also put some decorative items into yard sale pile. Sorted some costume jewelry to sell at yard sale. Also put some of my youngest son’s preschool papers into recycle… he will be a senior in high school next year! 😮

    Just have to say going out the door now to deliver two bags of clothes, one bag of books and a bag of blankets to thrift stores. Three bags for the garbage.

    What do I think? That you’re brilliant. :)
    Let’s be enough…how can we PURGE WHO WE ARE NOT to get to enough? Does the enough concept as related to stuff work with emotions too? And, should we write a book on purging who we thought we are? :) Oh, and I LOVE YOU!

    I am so glad you will be continuing this! I feel like May hasn’t been long enough! And I like what Allison said about food – where do you draw the line of getting good quality food for your family, and being content with less.

    YES, YES, YES, please!!! I was thinking that I would be bummed about not seeing an “enough” post for the day!! Love all your ideas and can’t wait to see more posts!

    Hooray! I’ve been a little sad that May is almost over. Having the community aspect of sharing here has been so awesome. I love this stuff. I want to to go on and on and on.

    One thing I’ve been thinking about a lot lately is Enough with relation to food. Simplifying our food choices and making choices that are best for the health of our bodies, our plant, the critters we eat (if we choose to eat critter). I struggle philosophically with balancing wanting to buy the best quality we can afford against the fact that a lot of people would be happy with food of ANY quality. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject!

    Let’s keep going! I need to keep going! LOL ! I’d love the chance to play catch up on the challenges I wasn’t able to do because of schedule issues.

    I’m also challenging myself to declutter some unfinished projects by completing them. Things like some mending, a package I need to mail, hanging some things back on the wall, getting the seeds in the ground and some lab work I need to have done.

    Please keep going. I wasn’t able to do the enough project this month due to too much other stuff going on. June will be easier. :)

    Haven’t been able to participate because of our crazy life over here, so would love to have another chance! :)

    I definitely do not want to see this end. I have not gotten everything done just like you say each day but I keep going back and picking up days. Such an encouragement. I have really been needing to purge. I live in an old country home that does not have enough closet space. I will keep purging as my stuff is a burden to me.
