Who doesn’t need a bit more simplicity in their lives? And how could it not be helpful and amazing to share ideas for achieving just that with other women?

That’s what I thought when I started Living Simply Saturdays, and for the most part, I think that this carnival has accomplished some of my original goals for it. I know that I’ve been encouraged and inspired by the things that so many of you have shared, and I’m grateful that I’ve done it these past 7 months (wow, has it really been 7 months?).

I need to announce, though, that as of next Saturday, I need to practically make my own life a bit more simple by ending this weekly carnival. I have found that the time and effort it takes to prepare for and to run the carnival are simply (hey, there’s that word again!) more than I can give in this season. I will likely still post on the topic of living simply from time to time, and will attempt to finish up the last few chapters of From Clutter to Clarity, but I will bid adieu to the carnival itself.

Thank you so much to those who have participated and read so faithfully. It’s been a pleasure. 🙂

So here’s your last chance, ladies, to share with us what brings more simplicity to your life!

  1. So sad to see this carnival go, but it is such a fantastic model to know when you need to let something go for tyour own well being and that of your family! You are an inspiration in many ways! Thanks for all you do!

  2. Stephanie, This carnival will be missed but completely understand the time this uses. Please keep posting — i have learned so much from you and have been inspired by you. I have actually been too ‘busy’ to post on Saturdays. As I am doing more homemade foods, dog treats, and laundry detergent — time is precious and it is easy to post instead of managing our homes and keeping our priorities straight. God first, husband second, children third, posting fourth 🙂 You have sent a great example!

  3. Thanks for doing this, I have been having fun reading other people’s entries… even though I didn’t write this post for your carnival, I thought I would post it on doing small things to be more simple and be more green!
