    ^ Yeah, I dunno why, but it seems like maxi dresses are usually cut for people with flat chests. I've noticed that too -- it's part of why I don't buy them.

    Here are my two most recent dress purchases -- both of which flatter my 36C cleavage:

    I love the shape of the top one! Yeah, I have two maxi-dress-ish things, and since I lack assets, they're perfect since they roll up tiny for traveling and they're all that's required for the outfit.

    Lately I've been getting a lot done in this category of my life with some help.

    I got a new desk for my room built into the wall which has given all of my school work and paperwork a place to call home. I still need to set it all up, but it's a great start.

    Also several things in my home have gotten major repairs and fixes.. which has helped inspire me to keep going in de-cluttering the stuff that I live around.

    2014 is a new year still, people! You can create little challenges for yourself, and tone down the things you live with!
    My goals for this year:
    - Declutter my paperwork outflow so that I can actually do paperwork without feeling overwhelmed.
    - Finally organize all of my photographs of the family as well as my own.
    - Throw a box of things out every week for trash or donation. At least 1 liquor store box's worth.
    - Fix all of my army stuff so that I never have to deal with that mess again.
    - Maybe finally get rid of my bed. Maybe.

    FYI, I love my 8" futon. And it's completely comfortable on a wood floor. And I can move it around or hide it to reconfigure my room on a whim.

    I remember you mentioning buying that on an impulse! My bed is starting to get creaky and wobbly with age.. it was a cheap purchase and I think it may still serve my sister.. but I've pretty much gotten rid of the rest of the whole set. I've been desiring a new mattress anyways.

    I'm glad it's comfortable! Gives me a little confidence in my decision.

    Stuff went to donation yesterday! We scrapped a BUNCH of copper and metals from the shed and back porch, with more stacks already being made while I'm in school.. a bag full of shoes I never wear and clothes that just don't look swell enough on me to justify keeping. I do need some particular pieces, but I feel like I should be pickier and choosier about them and get them as I need them and see them vs grabbing things that'll do for now last minute.

    Ordered a pair of new running shoes that will double as work shoes too, so that's cool. I got rid of a bunch of books on my bookshelf.

    Things to get still:
    - 2 CD organizers since I have too many CDs/DVDs still outside of safety cases.
    - A way to organize my odds-and-ends winter stuff.. I'm thinking an over-the-door shoe organizer will do it.
    - A small plant area. I need a plant in my room I decided.

    I've always wished I could be more minimalist. But I love art, and books, and collecting odd little things. My walls are covered, and my shelves are filled. They fill my world with wonder. Maybe I should start with the bathroom. It would be easier.

    I've lived without a permanent residence for a year, everything I need fits into two small trolley bags. I've gotten by renting a room by the night and bunking down with relatives. I am getting a residence again ths year but I will hesitate to fill it up with furniture again. Furniture is a huge liability espeially when you move. After getting rid of my last bed I will never buy an innerspring again I'll go back to a futon which is cheaper to buy and easier to transport. All my old furniture was recycled by being sold or given away. I only now own my vintage espresso machine, my harp, my motorbike, clothing, an ipad and two lovable cats who are boarding with my mother temporarily. It makes my next move easy.

    Still trying to find a very small house (less furnishings needed) on a decent bit if land for my permaculture stuff. Its actually really hard to find a small house. I didnt count on that at all. I love living frugal, so minimal goes well. My challenge this year is to put down roots again. The next move is to go off-grid in terms of money. I want to live with as little to do with the world monetary system as possible. I've spent years learning basic homesteading so I can increase my self reliance, of course I still rely on some basics (purchsed lye for soapmaking for example, although I'm keen to make my own from ash just once), once I'm settled I want to learn beekeeping, make a rocket mass heater and build my own hot water system so I can disconnect from the electricity grid. Growing enough food for health is easy, I've already doen it once and if you can't bring yourself to kill a chicken then you can always eat the eggs. So much to do....

    I was wishing that too--and I am a collector of things as well. You know what I've been doing last year was identify things I really needed/wanted and started 'exchanging' them for a couple items I didn't need. That works generally well for me and my family lately. I grabbed a lovely wall-covering picture of a rope bridge in the foggy jungle morning, and replaced 4 art-pieces on my wall with it. 3 items less, and more lovely scenery.

    My suggestion is take it a little at a time. Just make a small box, stick it at your front door, and go through something in random places for a while and say, "Hey, I don't really need this.." and put it in the donation box. At the end of the week, take it to donation, and start again. If you start struggling in a certain spot, move on to the next. After a couple months of that, you can really start looking at small sections and see what you kept trying to keep and what you wavered on, and analyze it.

    I found it really helps to justify three things out loud:
    1. How you got the piece
    2. Why you kept it
    3. What it does.

    If you cant make words for those three aspects of it.. chances are it's not really important.

    I think there are plenty of ways to get this done!! The way I'm going is looking for a large plot of land and buying it, since small plots are impossible to find, and building my house from there. The way you're talking, I'd say it'd be so much easier to find someone willing to subdivide their property and buy a piece from them and build the house from there. If you do it right, you can install some awesome things like solar heaters and electricity and such and wire the whole house to those off-the-grid purposes.

    ... Though, if you do a composting toilet, you might as well make an outhouse. @_@ Those just smell bad no matter what you do.

    I don't have a desire to live off the grid, but I do have a desire to be able to live on very little bills so that I can basically do nothing all month if I wanted to and not worry about money. I don't want to live month-to-month. I want to live. And a tiny house is the vehicle that's going to get me there.
