I need to simplify. You aren’t going to see me on a show about hoarders any time soon, but I have too much stuff. Of course there are things I’d like to have and don’t, but I need to get rid of all the extra clutter to make room.
So here’s what I’m contemplating. Starting in 2013, I’d like to set aside a period of time in which I will choose at least one thing each day that I don’t need. Once that’s done, I need to donate it, sell it, or toss it.
Aside from the everyday trash humans produce, it could be anything: clothes, music, gadgets, toys, books (perish the thought).
So here’s the question: Should I do this over a reflective period like Lent, or should I make an honest effort to purge one thing each day for the entire year?
