I sit in my place and look at all the crap that surrounds me. This is a lot less crap than I had seven years ago and much less than 13 years ago (my ‘max crap’ period). Seven and 13 years ago I purged a lot of things out of my life … it is time to do that once again. I expect this time to be a bit harder as my crap quantity is much lower, so the stuff I have seems more important.
My three largest collections of things are:
- books & magazines
- videos (ie, movies and TV shows on VHS, DVD and Blueray)
- music (ie, CDs)
Talking to a friend who has over the past year truly removed all the crap from his life. He moved last fall, all he needed, in a 2001 Honda Civic – yeah, it all fit in the little car.
