Clean Sweep

I find joy in getting rid of stuff! I advertised a bunch of stuff on Kijiji today, all of it for free and most of it is already gone and all of it is spoken for. I love to recycle. I think it's wonderful that people will drive to my house and take away my junk!

Getting rid of stuff is like losing weight. I think our possessions weigh us down and clutter our minds. I stood in my garage tonight looking at all the extra space and plotting what I could eliminate even further.

I read an interesting article recently about "buying green". The author suggested that instead of buying green, we just don't buy at all. What a concept! I wonder if sometimes we buy things just for the sake of buying things?

There is a certain joy in unencumbering ourselves.
