Getting rid of the clutter

December 16th, 2013 at 11:14 pm

Well, I have been cleaning out my basement, garage, and closets. I look at all the "things" I bought and I wonder why I did it.

Maybe I bought things because it made me feel better. How much of my life did I exchange for the money to purchase these things? Why? Now the DW and I have stuff we don't need or want! Sad. Very sad.

Now I am divesting myself of all this clutter. I now know Thoreau was right in his admonition to simplify! Don't weigh yourself down with things you don't need.

Buy what you need to be sure. Hesitate to spend.

Attitude Change

It is interesting to observe how I have less of a desire to buy things as I get older. I get more of a kick finding ways not to spend money. I still enjoy life. There is just no need to constantly spend to fill up the empty spaces.
My change jar has a substantial amount of change. I am constantly looking to save whatever I can. The investments are doing fairly well. I have no major expenses left.
Just checking in to remind myself to keep at it!
