Trying for Simplicity. "Redefine your wants verses needs and hate DEBT!"
From a psychological perspective it was helpful for me to phrase this to myself "Live simply so others may simply live", instead of feeling like I was losing something to feeling like I was helping others by my choices. Another example of tricking myself into doing what was right... I took pictures of all my possessions before giving them away or to the kids. I always have the pictures and I never felt like I lost anything. I feel very abundant and blessed with these life choices.... Hope this helps - living a life of simplicity will hold its own rewards for you once you work through the process. Make it as easy as possible. Blessings to you!
