Stuff weighs you down. I have way too much stuff. The problem is that stuff also attaches itself to you and can be very hard to get rid of. I have spent some time this morning trying to detach myself from some of my possessions. I don't want to be owned by my things anymore.
One of the hardest things to get rid of has been shoes.
I have a LOT of shoes. I love them. They are like art to me. I collect them and enjoy just looking at them sometimes.. However I am not going to wear some of them. Somebody else might, so I got rid of 10 pair. I need to get rid of more, but as I said, you get attached. 10 was a good start. After pair 5 it got a bit easier to put them in the box. Went back and tossed in a couple that I had left our originally.
clothes, plates, water bottles....anything we had too much of and were not using. gone gone gone. More to do, but one day at a time. At the moment about 50lbs of stuff has left my house. Another 50lbs tomorrow (stuff can weigh a lot!)
I am Stacey...watch me purge!
