I suspect we all know by this point that our penchant for acquiring and discarding stuff is killing the planet not to mention many people's pocket books. On the other hand our easily bored minds say "oh, look - something new/novel/interesting/etc." and we want it.
I try to be conscious of what I am acquiring but I do get really bored with some of my stuff. This is especially true of clothes. Hmmm, that probably can be explained by the social conditioning of females in our society to like having a variety of outfit choices and not wearing the same things over and over again.
Every time I think I've broken out of that mode I get the urge to "freshen my wardrobe" lol.
This summer I am resisting mightily as I know I will continue to not have anywhere to wear anything new (that foot surgery recovery - but perhaps the Dr. and physical therapist would like to see me in new clothes????).
Then there is the fact that I have ENOUGH although I do have a relatively small wardrobe. I will have to wear my less preferred items more often and finish wearing out some others as I sit on the couch or hang around the house. I'm staying strong!
