One of my best friends is into the new phenomenon, “Micro Homes“. Ever since she introduced them to me, I’ve been increasingly intrigued. I’ve seen a few YouTube videos on the subject and the more I see, the more I like.
I’m not saying I’m thinking of moving into one, but the thought of having to pare down my current horde of “stuff” in order to fit my life into 100 square feet (more or less) has gotten me thinking. Do I really need all these DVDs? All these books? If I could only keep a few, which would I keep? Am I really going to watch All of Me again? What about Citizen Kane? I think I was keeping that, and quite a few [unread] books, because I thought it “said something about me.”
Well now its in the “going out” pile. All it said about me was that I mistakenly bought into the idea that stuff = love. Yes, I’ll keep a few books, and I’ll probably keep the All of Me DVD… until six months from now when I do another paring down and it goes, too.
There is much more to do and I’m kind of on a roll now, getting rid of stuff that, frankly, I just don’t need.
