Clean Sweep for 2009
How much stuff is enough?
Can I pare down?
My husband has been helping some family members move. And it got me remembering my moving days - the shock of seeing everything I own in boxes and thinking, "Where did all this come from?" In college, everything I owned fit into a mid-size sedan...not anymore.
What's the big deal how much we own?
Well it's what owns us - our time, our resources, our hearts.
Besides my obsession with Goodwill - (getting rid of stuff, not more shopping)
My best tip for 2009 is to fire up the scanner. My tendency is to drown in a pile of papers. It has been so freeing to lose the unnecessary files, journals, business papers, etc. I'm not done yet. But doing a little each time I do the bills sure helps.
