I have too much stuff.
I think a more accurate way to state the above sentence would be to say that too much stuff has me.
We move a lot so I have far more opportunities than I’d like to see all of my earthly possessions packed, boxed, and carted out in front of me. Then I have to unpack and find new homes for everything.
I spend way more of my time than I would like dealing with the clutter that comes from having way too much stuff.
Lately I’ve thought a lot about the excess that I have that could actually be blessing others who need my stuff more than I do.
Since we have another move in just a few weeks, I’m smack dab in the middle of looking at all this stuff we own and trying to decide what I really need to keep. I probably need much less than is actually leaving this house in boxes, and garbage bags, and brown paper grocery sacks. This article has helped me to let go of several items that I don’t need to keep anymore, but I still look around and see a lot of stuff.
Stuff, stuff, stuff, stuff. I’m sick of it.
How about you? Do you have a hard time getting rid of things or is it easy for you to live an uncluttered life? What’s your best “uncluttering” tip? Also, do you have any ideas that would help me teach my kids to let go of some of their stuff?
