Clean Outs

"

I got to a point a few years ago where I found I had too much crap I did not use. My motivations for selling what I don’t use range from not wanting others to clean up my mess after I die to wanting to release money from stuff I have not used in years to get myself a new motorbike, mobile and laptop. The whole process is incredibly therapeutic.

I still need occasional clear outs. I still buy things, and stop using old things. Not a bad thing, consumerism culture is crap, but so is not having nice things.

      Too much clutter in our lives! Took me years to get to where I am now with it and I still go through spates of acquiring crap hah!

      I got to a point where it became less painful and just ‘oh god get rid of this stuff!’.

    I’m a ‘devout’ minimalist. I was never a hoarder, but I did collect items thinking ‘maybe one day I will use this.’ Eventually, I realised I was better off getting rid of anything that had no use to me, as well as sentimental objects that weighed me down too. The worst that can happen if you get rid of something you later regret getting rid of, is that you have to purchase it again. In the case of sentimental items, that’s not always possible, so I’d suggest to anyone who is wanting to get rid of something, to think about it carefully before doing so. I do believe less is more though.

      I gt a few personal bits. Also still have the box of things I cant let go of, but really should. It is nice not living such a cluttered life though!

          Haha, its collectables from when I was a yoof. I haven’t used anything in it since the 80s heh. Its not a big box though, and some of it is fairly valuable now.

    Look no further than your countryman and original up/re-cycler William Morris if you need out of the consumerism rut. Okay, maybe a crock pot isn’t a 400 year old church window, but still…a planter, maybe?

      Hah. I do not have the up cycle eye, the missus is good at upcycling though. 🙂
