Simple Living for Empty-Nesters, Boomers and Seniors

 

It's never easy to find your way on the path to minimalism, but it can be a bit easier to live a small, minimalist life if you are quite young when you begin.

But what if you have acquired possessions over the course of a lifetime? What if you have raised a family -- and still have all those trappings filling your home? What if you have mementos that you have owned for decades? What if you are ready to simplify, but are overwhelmed and don't know where to begin?

Living Small can help anyone interested in living a simpler life to find their way. If you are an empty-nester, a boomer or a senior, taking these steps can be a little tougher, and the information here can help you to overcome the obstacles that are unique to the mature adult who is interested in a simpler path.

Regardless of your age, if you are interested in starting your next chapter in life with less "stuff" to manage, more time to enjoy the important things in life, less financial worry and more focus on health and personal well-being -- you have come to the right place!
