Questions …. Is it easier to get rid of stuff in tough economic times or harder? Is it easier to live with 5x as much stuff as you need or the bare minimum? Is it hard for you to let go or to just find time to let go?
I find that an uncluttered house makes me feel freer and actually allows me to act freer. I like that feeling of space and feeling like I am not bound by stuff.
I think about my Dad who lived through the Great Depression…. everyone seemed to be so resourceful, so saving and careful with their things. But …. I don’t think the two times, then and now, are really comparable. Its different now even though money is tight. Things are more available now, used items as well as new.
But when is enough … enough?
What are your feelings about stuff and getting rid of it? What are your answers to the questions?
