Stuff....clutter....crap.. there's lot of words for it and I have come to realize that I have way to much of it!!!! How much stuff does a family really need? Why do we think we need so much?
It really is ridiculous!!! We are having a garage sale next Sat., and so I've been going through things, cleaning and organizing, and getting MAD!! It makes it hard to clean things when there is stuff on everything! Sometimes I long for the days when Ben and I first got together and had hardly anything. Honestly, when we moved into our first house there wasn't even a stove, and we didn't have the money to buy one so we did without. It actually didn't even bother us that much because back then we just ate junk and I never really cooked anyways, we also didn't have a kitchen table. So needless to say, we didn't have a lot of extra crap laying around the house cluttering up things........................... now don't get me wrong, I'd much rather be in the situation that I am now, but there is a happy medium I think. Somewhere there is a point where its just enough. I am sure that that point is different for each family, for example, I have 3 kids, so the stuff needed in my house would obviously be different than say for example, my sisters house who will just have herself and her husband in it.
My point I guess is that I am on a mission to find out what I really need, and what is just cluttering up everything. And also I need to figure out the best place to store the things that I really need due to lack of space. It's bothering me so much today that I am debating on if I really even want/need to go to the big set of garage sales that I am planning on going to this weekend. Will I just be bringing in someone elses junk that I don't need? There are things that I do need for my kids though..... UUggghhhh,, I don't know what to do.
People just remember that STUFF doesn't make us happy!!!
