Welcome to the Fluff! Here I blog my goals, especially my reading and studies, and my ongoing downscaling and using up of material stuff and working towards a more minimalist lifestyle.

So that was it for January.  I 'cheated' in a way, because I wanted to keep the number of goals to only 20, so I bunched a few up and actually had as many as usual!!  So, had I spaced them out as I normally do, then there would have been a fair few more completions. :)

I know the "Finished" number isn't high, but in fact, I think you've got a lot done...
