#356 - Week of Quotes - More Stuff

this is a picture of all the black shirts I recently got rid of...I really like black clothes...it's a problem...

"The more stuff you own, the more stuff owns you."

I think I get on a kick every few months to pare down all the stuff I have. Seriously, too much stuff feels so overwhelming. It's tough to get rid of stuff when you have a kid and one on the way, plus a husband that is a jack of all trades (so we have every tool, cable/cord, technical thing out there.)

Anyone have any good hints on getting rid of stuff?


*for a entry about minimalism, this post sure feels wordy...

love black clothes. Black goes with everything, except dark blue and maybe orange because then you look like a halloween pumpkin.
but otherwise I love black!

Here's an idea: After purging, take the clothes to a consignment shop. You may get some cash for it (to fund Baby O's apple stash) and what they don't pay you for, they usually donate to Goodwill anyway. Everyone benefits!

My friends and I have had a couple of clothes swaps. So you take all your clothes to the swap and it's just kind of a free for all. If you don't want anything in exchange, you don't have to take anything. If you ever feel compared to wear that shirt you got rid of, you can always borrow it back from the friend who grabbed it!
