For the past few months, I’ve been exploring the ideas and choices around minimalism and simplicity. Some people may feel that it’s a fad and who knows, they might be right. For me personally, I’ve always found that I think better with less clutter and simplicity falls in line with my productivity methods.

I plan on writing more about this journey I’m on, but I need to get some distance first so I can look back and have some perspective. Then the article Simplicity is hard. Let’s go shopping! showed up in my RSS reader, courtesy of and I just had to share it.

It has more to do with how husbands and wives communicate than it does with minimalism, but I hope you find it as humorous as I did. Enjoy.
