Lightening Up

According to the Wall Street Journal, Americans spend $1.2 trillion annually on nonessential goods--in other words, items they do not need.

Is it time to lighten up your home and transition to a clean, efficient minimalist lifestyle?

Minimizing your own or inherited personal property collection has many physical and emotional benefits, including less stress, greater peace of mind, easier navigation, smaller financial expenses for maintenance and upkeep, and fewer health issues from stuff-related dust or mildew.
