In the next few weeks I will be moving to another place where I can live rent free and save my money towards my Tiny House. While I hate moving, it does present a great opportunity to getting rid of stuff. As you pack your boxes you have a chance to consider each item, your every decision weighs on you literally as you picture yourself having to sluff each item to the next place you’ll call home. I find moving to be a great time for getting rid of stuff, to reflect on sentimental items, remember good times.
I find it puts a lot of what is truly important in your life into perspective. How will this move impact my friendships? How often will I see family? What new opportunities will it bring? It strikes me in these moments that I have these type of thoughts and paired with the fact that most possessions almost seem burdensome. It brings a lot of focus to things.
Perhaps I will do a post on what all of my things look like, what I was able to weed out, and if I feel very ambitious, count each item to see how many I have. We shall see!
