What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

I do that with my quilting books so they will lay flat while I work on a project :) it is great that way!

Have you had any issues with certain thicknesses, or are they able to do thicker things? I have a cookbook that I would love to do that with....


I can see the value in that!! Good idea!

Mmmmm... this makes me happy.


I do this with all of my music books... how can they expect a pianist to play from music that doesn't lay flat, really? Glad to hear Staples is cheaper - we're about to get one here! :D


What is "not too spendy"? I have always wondered what that costs. I knew one person who used to do that with our bible study workbooks. I have always wanted to do it - and maybe now I will.
