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.

Ins and Outs 2018

This is my joint personal (i.e. not food, health and domestic products) shopping and clearing out/using (up) list for the year which I will publish as a blog post in early Jan 2019, but will be visible here all year whilst in progress.  Digital things such as book, magazines and knitting patterns don't count as my purpose is not so much to control spending (although that's never a bad thing), but to cut down on physical stuff.
