As I've been packing up the cozy brick house I've been thinking a lot about stuff. Material stuff, that is. Why do we buy what we buy? Is it because we need it, want it, love it, can't live without it? Or maybe some other reason? After dropping 20+ bags off to Goodwill, I am determined to be more choosy about the things we bring into our new home. I know you're thinking, 20 BAGS! That's bananas! And you're right, it is. I have been brutal in my purging. I've withered our possessions down to things that we need, (think kitchen items + other household basics) things that we want, (like electronics, toys, my craft supplies) and things that we love (art, books.) My goal is to live more simply.
Along with this, I plan to be more conscious in my future purchases. Instead of buying something merely out of convenience, I want even the most basic of purchases (like a dustpan) to be something that is functional and lovely. We all need to have stuff, my plan is to have stuff that inspires. My pinboards are evidence of this.
