I’ve come to the conclusion that I really hate stuff. Brian and I have been working on that whole “clean apartment and SIMPLIFY” resolution for the last 48 hours or so. We took everything out of our closets and produced two boxes for Goodwill and lots of stuff for the dumpster. And we’re still not done.
It’s enough to make me want to convert to some minimalist religion (which one is that again?) and forgo all things. And this year in particular we’ve acquired lots and lots of things. Which we are beyond grateful for. Truly.
But, it does make you think about gifts. And why we give them. And should we give them?
Not to give you the impression that we were entirely blameless in acquiring all this stuff. Heck no. Brian and I have purchased our fair share. Which brings about a different set of questions about our culture and how we live.
Thanks for reading this edition of “big questions with no answers.” Better luck with closure and conclusions next time.
But seriously, do you have any solutions for organizing and purging your stuff?
