The Richest Man

 The richest man is not he who has the most, but he who needs the least ~ Author Unknown.
In trying to find inspiration for an entry tonight, I came across this quote. Twenty years ago, this would not have resonated with me because I was in an accumulation mode.
Don't get me wrong, we still accumulate more than we probably should, but buying more stuff is not a reflex now.
Both Jilda and I have been working to reduce clutter, and we've made progress, but there is still a ways to go.
Our carpenter is scheduled to come this weekend to build shelves for our TV room. Once built, things should begin to come together in there.


  1. Love that quote Rick. And I need to work on reducing clutter myself.

  2. I really enjoyed the quote. I also am in that stage of life when you realize youncant take it with you and your kids are going to have to deal with it all eventually. Making memories becomes more important than collecting possessions.

  3. Downsizing is important....Keeps things in perspective, somehow.

  4. I am hopefully moving by the end of the year and I am totally going to downsize... I have been working on it slowly... I just have to convince my little Valentina that stuff is not important :)

  5. I adore organization.


  6. I read that quote in one of Corrie ten Boom books. It wasn't word for word, but it meant the same thing. I love the sentiment of the quote. I have way too much junk... I really "NEED' very few things..
