Stuff and our lives
Courtney Carver has been on a fascinating journey to reduce the influence of "stuff" in her life and moving to a much smaller home. She writes about the process and benefits so well in Why you should give away 50% of your stuff
Laura is rapidly getting ready to put her home on the market in preparation for a new life in Hawaii and writes about decluttering in her Getting ready to sell roundup post.
I'm so envious of both. I am ready to do the same although LA would be my destination. We aren't going anywhere for at least 4 1/2 years though and as a couple we don't yet have the same vision of our future living circumstances.
Nevertheless I slowly work away at what I can control. I've decluttered 47 items from our home this month and we brought in 7 new items of clothing for a net reduction of 40 items. So little progress but slightly more than one a day. I'll keep at it and look forward to the great clear out when we finally get this house ready to sell.
