Stuff

I have noticed more storage facilities being built. Places for us to store our extra stuff. We have larger homes than past generations, yet, we need places to rent, in order to store our stuff that does not fit in our large homes. Stuff that is going unused, that others could use. Stuff that could be sold to help pay off bills and reduce debt. Stuff that needs to be cleaned, organized, rearranged, that gets tripped over, tossed aside, and trampled.

Have you organized and cleaned out rooms and closets? I noticed recently when I cleared out stuff in one room, how open and wonderful it felt. I have a ways to go, but I believe if I can get rid of more of my stuff, it will make me feel so much more relaxed, and I will be able to more easily find the stuff I actually use!

    So good, Lisa. I have a way to go, as well, but it does feel good! Thanks for the reminder.

  2. Since 2012 I have purged four times as a nomadic traveler getting rid of stuff, and I have one last bag of clothing left to fulfill my transition to becoming a minimalist.
    Stuff gathering is a symptom bordering on hoarding, but it usually takes a traumatic or life-altering experience to discover that stuff is a transition that teaches many people what indeed is essential to life.

      The latest destruction going on as I write, with the fires in California, make your point clearly. How many people have lost everything this year due to storms and fires? Congratulations on your success in simplifying your life!
