Recently, I've been feeling overwhelmed by stuff. I hate having pieces of clothing I don't love, but wear anyway because I just like them. I cleaned out my lingerie chest and found two nighties I had when I was first married. I suppose I ought to get rid of them. 8 years and 3 children later, that style just doesn't suit (fit) me anymore. So why did I put them back in the drawer?! A blogger friend of mine keeps her own wardrobe and the wardrobes of her children quite simple. I'm inspired (and challenged) by that.
Toy and books are other areas where I can simplify.
It is definitely taking a LOT of thinking through.
It doesn't help that I keep hearing a voice from my past saying, "Hold onto it! You never know when you might need it!" Waste not, want not and all that.
Oh, the challenge that this is for me.
