Simple Life

Even though I now call the world’s 17th largest city home, I am living a simpler life in Argentina than I was in the United States. I am learning to live without many of the luxuries people in the US are accustomed to and deem necessary; I have less “stuff” and I’m happier because of that. The go-go, buy-buy, no-time mentality in the US no longer suits me.

Besides living with less, I have also jumped on the Do-It-Yourself, reduce-reuse-repurpose lifestyle. I am relishing in the satisfaction that comes with doing and creating things on your own and not relying on products sold to us by advertising execs and celebrities. I am learning to be more self-sufficient. I also find I am spending less money by choosing natural, often traditional options, and I know I am being more kind to this organic orb we call Earth.

Most importantly, I am finding that the simple things in life are bringing me greater joy. I am a pleasure-seeking human, after all!
Here is an archive of my attempts, successful or not, at voluntary simplicity and of making a difference where I can:
