It's not about having nothing... or having everything... but having what you need.
I have a tendency to pick up items when I find a great deal and stash them for later and it's gotten out of hand. I'm not at hoarder level (I don't think), but I have way more than I need and I'm learning to let go. I've already gotten a start the past couple months and have already given away/sold/donated quite a few items:
- over 300 books
- a large trash bag of clothing
- a rolling duffel full of more clothing
- a television, dvd player and vhs/dvd player
- lots of movies on VHS
- tons of CDs
Those are the biggies, there were others... and many more to come. =) I have lofty goals. I'd love to build and live in a very tiny home one day and this journey is a step on that path. What better day to start than the day after new items have come in. My possessions currently fit nicely into a 2-bedroom, 960sqft mobile home - I have a ways to go to my goal! My plan is to get rid of at least one item each day So, join me as I learn to stash less and live more.
From my days working a job on the road, an extra suitcase... full of clothes!
Heading off to Goodwill. =)
