Tired of Stuff
The problem with getting rid of stuff is that you can start to purge a closet and then you become overwhelmed and give up. I am not going to sit on the floor of my bedroom and spend time becoming emotionally attached to clothes that either don't fit me anymore or are out of style.
What is the point of owning things that you can't get to, that you have even forgotten that you own or that have no use or purpose?
I am going to devote 2 hours each week to going through my stuff and getting rid of things. One local charity makes it very easy to donate items. You pull up along the back of their building, push a button and then their doors slide open and there is someone there to help you unload the items you are going to donate. How easy is that?
I would rather open closets that have a moderate amount of items in them than open doors to closets that are stuffed full of things. In the end I will be bringing more peace into my daily life. Who doesn't crave peace?
