View Full Version : What to get rid of?
I've come to a point where I've decided to simplify my life by going through EVERYTHING I own and questioning its purpose and how it affects me. I want to have a minimal amount of stuff- right now I have way too many things but everything I have is there for a reason...there are some things that I keep only because they cost me so much and then there are the things I keep because someone else got it for me :rolleyes: . I can't be needy when it comes to getting rid of things but I also can't decide :confused: . Did you know that Ghandi only had about four possesions- a book, a pen, a comb and his sandles :eek: (I think it was along those lines). I just can imagine how liberating that would be...only thing is that I'm so attached to my possesions. What is your advice when it comes to deciding what I should give away/sell/throw out?
"Most of the luxuries, and many of the so-called comforts of life, are not only indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind. With respect to luxuries and comforts, the wisest have even lived a more simple and meagre life than the poor."--Henry David Thoreau
When it comes to clothes, don't keep the ones you never use. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
Always keep your integrity, & don't throw away your heart. :D http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

lol rogue, i've been thru this dilema, i have so much junk in my closet, including a giant bin of Stuffed animals when i was little, 4 bins of Legos, some transformers, unassembled model kits, remote controlled cars... then there are my shelves next to my bed, and the night stand, and the once-empty space next to the shelves, and next to the stand, and next to the bed, and... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif
ok i have to take the garbage can out tonight. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif i better do it now. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
I have this theory...if I have not used it (clothes, gadgets, etc)in three months then I get rid of it, meaning it goes to my friends so I can always get it back if I miss it too much http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif
