1. Disease of excess, caused by repetitious acquisition.
2. The continual desire and ability to obtain more and more of what one already has too much of.
3. Cause: affluenza.
4. Cure: reduction in possessions.
-Harriet Schechter Let Go of Clutter
How many times have you lamented that you have to just get rid of stuff, but then don't follow through? Or you start to eliminate, but somehow when you are done you just didn't get rid of as much as you wanted?
We tend to think that we need much more than we actually really do. This can often result in crowded houses, packed closets, papers in various places, house-wide disorganization and duplicates of things we already have.
The attached article shows a woman who took eliminating excess to the extreme. Think you could do it? What if the payoff was a neat, tidy and organized space?
Makes you wonder what you really need doesn't it?
