OMG, that looks way too familiar!!!


Packing up my house makes me very familiar with this boxy landscape! It is truly amazing how much stuff one accumulates. Some of it is absolutely necessary, some of it is acknowledged "excess" that I still want...and I'm still trying to get rid of things every single day. It's been an eye opening process. I've accumulated a lot in 6 years! Now I have to use things madly to make space in my life for more...hard to believe I ever needed this much stuff.

Yours is, of course, all necessary, so it's not quite the same, but I understand where you're coming from, in any case!


I used to think that if I had more room, I'd have more space to work. Unfortunately, more stuff just arrives to take up the "more room" and I still don't have room to work...


Wowie. I have been complaining that my house is too full of "stuff." I took probably a dozen bags/boxes of unwanted items to charity in the last 10 days or so, and only I can tell I've made any difference.

Thank you for helping me see that it's all a matter of perspective. What I've got is more than I once had, less than I had two weeks ago, and somewhere in the middle when compared to "average," whatever that might mean.

Just figuring out where to put things is an important subject. I finally admitted that I had more clothing than I possibly could store. Sentimental or not, I have let go of about 5-6 business suits I have not worn since 1999, a good number of other garments, shoes, purses... and the list goes on.

Brian reminds me that we have a finite number of objects in this house. There is some comfort in that, but I told him I do NOT want to know what that number is!

I've just moved to a house that's 1/3 or 1/4 the size of the last place I was renting. My house is currently full of boxes and I'm wondering where everything will go. (I did get rid of a lot of things before I moved, but still...) At least my studio is, so far, an open and easy place to work. Can't get through the living room or kitchen comfortably, though!
