Too much stuff
Over the Christmas holiday I boarded out the loft and insulated the rafters. We now have a great space up in the loft, but unfortunately it’s already full with all the stuff we’ve accumulated. I’ve got to the point now where I really hate “stuff”.
About 10 years ago we were living in a small flat while hunting for a house and most of our things were in storage. I still remember that time very fondly, it was so liberating to be free of all that clutter.
Unfortunately sharing my current much larger house with my wife and 4 girls I’m pretty much surrounded by other people’s stuff so not having much myself doesn’t really make that much impact. My current strategy therefore is to cut back on my spending, save my money until I can afford to by some space that can be just for me, hopefully this year sometime.
Anyone else suffering from the same problem, might appreciate this great essay.
