I can’t believe I’ve gotten rid of this many things. I didn’t realize I had so much unused extra stuff hanging around. I’ve moved an incredible and insane 11 times in the past two years and I really thought I had gotten rid of anything not useful. I think maybe when I was going through that huge amount of instability…maybe I clung to my material possessions? It feels really good to clear things out. Really good. Try it with me! You can start any day you want – it doesn’t have to be the first of the month. Let me know how it goes!
