I was watching the TV show "American Pickers" last night and I've been thinking about STUFF.
I like the two guys on the show and they really find some amazing stuff. It's frustrating watching sometimes because they go for all the 'man' stuff and I can see where I'd be looking - at the more interesting 'woman' stuff!
What strikes me most about the show though is that the collection owners are almost all older men who mainly don't want to part with their treasures. Lots of times they'll hold out for a higher price, things just aren't for sale, etc..
What are you thinking there guys?
You can't take it with you.
I've been to enough estate sales to know this and you have too.
Let it go.
I'm thinking about my own 'stuff' and how I need to be careful all the time to edit and not collect.
I don't want to live in a bare house but I don't want my children to have to deal with a bunch of junk either...
I'm constantly trying to clean, organize and keep only what we need or love...
Watching the show last night I was looking around the whole time at what needs to go.
The view from my couch, including dog and baby gear.
This is my decluttering bible. Except for the part about the folding clothes. I just can't get the folding...
Time to get busy!
