Wow! I'd be a much more content human being (and the world a far better place) if I only had fewer possessions! Then I'd be, like, more spiritual than everyone else!

I'm getting on board with this one right now!!!!

Apparently this website was one of the things that was on someone's list to get rid of.

bifford: Move house.  I guarantee you the cost and effort of moving your crap will help you realize what you truly value.


I did this. I realized I truly value crap. What now?

Every five years move out of your house, get rid of stuff that wouldn't make an actual move, clean the empty house, then move back in.

Sometimes it's just thriftiness handed down by family members who survived the Great Depression and the second War to End All Wars. You can tell by the jars of bent nails.

Bedstead Polisher: I only get rid of the stuff that looks old or is completely not in style anymore.


I can't do this. Society frowns upon nakedness.

Epicanis: Everybody advocating "moving" as a way of decluttering is forgetting the massive industry of "rental storage".

Me: "We're really going to have to throw out a lot of this stuff".
Minister of Domestic Affairs: "No, we'll just put it in storage!"

Make it stop....

/I'm not entirely blameless here, having my own share of unnecessary clutter...
//I'm STILL trying to figure out how *I* ended up being "the neat one" (relatively speaking) in this relationship...


Minister of Domestic Affairs - love it!

Reminds me of a song lyric:
It's like before my wife and I moved from Texas to California our house was full of boxes and there was a u-Haul truck in our driveway. My friend comes over and says, "Hey, You moving?"
"Nope."
"We just pack our stuff up once or twice a week. Just to see how many boxes it takes."
"Here's your sign."

Sharksfan: I went through some old tool bins, etc, in the basement a few weeks ago.

I started with four large bins (13 gallon?) and by the time I was done I had 1 bin.

The rest was in the garbage or garage sale pile.

It's surprising how much tubes old caulk I had in there.  (flame away...)


Man, the excitement at typing that statement affected your grammar.  You must REALLY love the caulk.

/ducks -- couldn't resist.

czetie: Sometimes I wander around the house making mental lists of things I would sell, donate or toss if it were only my decision.

And sometimes I actually fantasize about a house fire. I would far rather have the insurance money and a fresh start than the current contents of my house.

Just me?


Nope. Perhaps we could help each other out...

This seems less like an effort to stop clutter, and more like an effort to publicize the release of an upcoming book about her experience.

Getting rid of 10 things a day fails if you acquire 12 or more things a day.  I have a feeling there will be a lot of people failing at this due to bad math.  "I feel good for getting rid of my 10 things from my closet, so I went shopping and bought 4 pants, 4 dress shirts, 3 sweaters and 2 pairs of shoes.  I get to treat myself because today, I win."

I think I'm going to start a motivational speaking company which encourages this. Hell, you can even bring your 10 things per day to the office and leave them there. We'll dispose of them for you, at only nominal charge.

Moving once a year (on average) through my twenties already helped me out with this goal.
