anyway, as i’ve started going through my stuff i’ve become overwhelmed about the amount of “stuff” i have. i desperately want to downsize.
i want my possesions to be few and meaningful.
i know i should toss the old hoodie that used to belong to a certain boy. i know i probably don’t need to keep all of my old birthday cards or all of my train tickets from when i moved to wales. i know there are certain items of clothing or shoes that haven’t been worn in months that can go. but i need help. that sounds crazy but when i get into “downsizing” mode i sort of get that deer-in-the-headlights look and panic. i also fear getting rid of too much and then replacing it all. not good.
so how do you decide what to keep and what to toss? do you have a system?
