I think the article said in the second sentence that the "simple life" does not mean the same for everyone. It's what makes you happy and contented. I traveled fulltime in a motorhome for 7 years and it was wonderful. Charlotte Champlin, good luck in your travels. It's a wonderful experience and you meet so many nice people in the "RV world", plus so much to see. One difference was that I had two bills, phone and Visa for gas and campgrounds. Now, back to 700 bills with home ownership! Happy travels!

According to Merriam-Webster; "the simple life" definition:

"—used torefer to a manner of living in which a person does not own many things or use many modern machines and usually lives in the countryside.

  • He lives in a small cabin and enjoys the simple life."

  • Today we call that a "minimalist life" :)

Decluttering and downsizing is my aim. But the process is tiring and certainly not simple! The rewards will be worth it I'm sure. Im getting there, only a month or so to go - dependent on getting a quick sale of my house of course.
