I Challenge You, You Challenge Me

There must be something in the air this year. So many of us have turned to our inner selves and have come up with amazing ideas for the start of 2012 that despite the bleak "prophesies" we were scared with, I am sure that the year is going to be way more positive than expected.

Prepare for a challenging 2012!

The idea of the Simple Living Challenge dawned on me at the end of 2011 but can you imagine how excited I was when a week later I learned that my editor on Green Living Ideas, who also happens to be the captain of the most  eco-conscious and active team on etsy -  Team EcoEtsy - ecokaren has organized a De-cluttering Challenge!

Karen is challenging herself and us to a de-cluttered month that will hopefully change our point of view even if we don't consider ourselves hoarders. Since she tries to motivate us through comparison, each week Karen will post the items that she is throwing away, donating or selling.

And since decluttering is such a big part of simple living, I have already signed my name and I am encouraging you to take Ecokaren's De-clutter Challenge as well. I am sure that we all have something more to learn! Plus, having company means that you are on the right track in so many ways!

And if you still haven't, come take the Simple Living Pledge and prepare for the Simple Living Challenge starting February 1st!
