I have just found this wonderful site about living the simple life.
These people are motivated by their Christian faith to live a very simple life. There are some wonderful instructions on making home made washing soap, and how to care for a house.
Some of us are going to have to accept the choice these women make to be 'servants' of their husbands - but you gotta admire their commitment to live using a minimum of the earth's resources.
Have fun looking through the site - and then tell me if you find their simple approach to life just so attractive.
