Stuff. Where does it come from? Have you ever looked around your house and wondered how you ended up with so much “stuff”? This can be in the form of anything from clothes to makeup to shoes (or all of the above if you are like me).
Since I recently moved, I am acutely aware of every item I own. I tried to do some major purging of things when I was unpacking but I still feel like I have too much “stuff’. I put a lot of things aside that will go on my garage sale, but as I watched that pile up I wondered why do I continue to buy more stuff? Why do I hang on to things I don’t really need?
The way I have it figured is I paid someone to move these things at least 5 times over the past 10 years. I mean I still had a box of notes from highschool, why did I save this?! I even had a pair of sweat pants from 6th grade. Yes 6th grade!!!!! Why?!?!
Is it that I just can’t get rid of things? Probably. Or I just want to keep things around because it makes me feel better? Who knows. I think sometimes when we come from a mindset of things “lacking” in our life (like money) we forget that it’s ok to let go of things because if we really need it we can actually buy more.I know I’ve done this with things that have been given to me over the years. But yet I still continue to buy and hang on to things I don’t really need or end up using.
Now that I’m moved and organized for the most part, I’m starting fresh and making a new commitment not to acquire more unnecessary “stuff”. What about you, do you have too much stuff? Can you commit to avoid buying things you don’t really need?
