i'm using a cream with olive oil. It is a cream they gave my mother at the hospital. It smelled so good. She didn't use it all and sent it home with her. I found it online and ordered more. I use it all over, even my face.

Does not buying something the same as downsizing? LOL

I haven't purchased any new clothes this month. I'm going to see if I can make it to the end of the year without buying any clothes and maybe just one pair of winter shoes. Oh and some yoga pants. Just started doing that.

Finally fixed the pantry. Used to be fanatical about it. Don't know what happened - too many pets?

Threw out some items I purchased from fundraisers. My cooking is very simple now and I don't need a pancake batter squirter. Didn't work anyway. I tried. From now on - its a cash donation only.

Much neater and cleaner.

Out with a heavy computer table, in with a folding beechwood computer table. Weight is my biggest focus.

I downsized my old 150 gig hard drive and replaced it with a faster SSD drive. Now my lap top runs like lightning, which means I'm lighter in my feet metaphorically, and being lighter means that I go rid of slowness.

Getting rid of slowness at my age is a major plus.

I got rid of four truck loads of worthless stuff we moved with because my wife assured me that we couldn't do without it.
