How about, just as an experiment, packing up most of your dishes? Seriously. What would it be like it every one had a bowl, a plate, and a cup and not too much more? There would be a whole lot less dish washing for one.
Don't go crazy. Don't give them all away. No, just pack them up and put them in a closet or your garage until the end of summer. And then reevaluate.
We have tried this and are ready to pack up even more. In the quest for simple and slow, this is a super easy place to start.
Let me know what you think in the comments (and share a picture if you try this!)
