"I want to start this next phase of my life with only the things that make me happy and don't require constant upkeep on my part." From the book From Clutter to Clarity by Nancy Twigg.
I keep throwing things out and giving other things away in my constant effort to declutter. I'm seeing lots of progress, but there's so far to go. Where does all this stuff come from?!? I've stopped buying everything but groceries, a few summer clothes, and the occasional book. It's like the house manufacturers excess junk while we sleep. I'm getting ruthless. Lots of stuff that used to mean something to me, I really don't care about anymore. That's freeing, but I need to be freer. At least I don't feel like I'm drowning in stuff. It is getting better.
