How much stuff does one really need?
by pickygirl72 at 1/19/2015 1:43:03 AM

How much stuff does one really need? How important are materialistic things to you? How much are YOU willing to give up? I am not talking about circumstances where you HAD to give up things because of circumstances beyond your control. I am talking about the willingness to let things go when you don't have to.

I am giving away most of my belonging; those things I hold on to for reasons I am finding unknown to me. The family heirlooms that have lost their meaning or knick knacks I thought I had to have or paperwork and miscellaneous things in boxes. Where does it end?

The purpose of this is to better understand who I am. To find out what's really important in my life. I have hobbies, family and friends. I have loved and lost.

Its time I stepped back and find out what truly matters.

That's awesome, gave up a lot of meaningless items, so I could travel the world.i live lightly and can always pick up and go.

There's that old saying ( he who dies with the most toys wins ) I'm in that race. But I didn't waste my coins on knick knacks.

The most important things and what truly matters you shall find within your heart

I'm definitely not a hoarder. I'm sentimental mentally and don't save everything under the sun. I'd rather write what happened in a journal.

Ever since i moved to a different style house and had a rummage sale to rid myself of $1500 worth of baggage. That day i felt 2 tons lighter! Today i continue with my "no net gain" policy. If something comes in, something goes out. I have have just enough stuff, doesn't feel as heavy anymore.

Wrote a similar blog like this about a month ago!! I'm all for getting rid of what I call dust collectors... like charli said it feels sooo good to get rid of things, it does feel like a "load" taken off my back when I do this!! I also like the policy (if something comes in, something goes out). Thanks for the reminder, will be donating today

You can have all the money material stuff but if you don't have that special someone to share them with they don't mean Jack!!!!!

Most of my stuff will go to goodwill or to someone who deserves it. I am not out to get money for my items. Just need to lighten my load. Although I only really have a rooms worth of stuff so it should be easy.

Well i am on the journey of getting rid of stuff. I am finding myself giving away stuff away more than selling it.
