In preparation for our new book that will be released March 1, last week I asked you to share catchy phrases you use to support the concept of living with less. Between Facebook and here on the blog, we had a great discussion going.

I’m really inspired by all of these wonderful phrases you shared!

  • “If the house was burning down, would I grab this?”
  • Live like no one else, so you can live like no one else.” (Dave Ramsey)

  • I’m not supporting Martha Stewart any longer!
  • Use it up,
    Wear it out,
    Make it do,
    Do without
  • Don’t try to keep up with the Joneses—they’re broke too.
  • How many hours do I or my husband have to be away from our family to pay for this?
  • Is this a need or a want?
  • Live simply so others can simply live.
  • KISS– Keep is simple silly
  • Back to the basics
  • Less is better- you don’t have to pay for it later!
  • Just say NO to yourself.
  • When you can’t sew or mend, make a friend.
  • Buy used and save the difference!
  • Buy one, get rid of one.

Do you have any more to add to this list?
